Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: Cuiabá double chance
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Knowing that they have a real chance to spring another upset at the Arena Pantanal on Tuesday, Cuiabá will host Corinthians at midnight.
Starting with the hosts, while many across Serie A might have tipped Cuiabá as a leading contender to be hit with an immediate second-tier return this year, Jorginho’s side are enjoying a real bounce. Despite being billed as an underdog when they welcomed Atlético Goianiense to the Arena Pantanal last week, Dourado picked up an eye-catching 2-1 victory on home soil. Enjoying what has been by far their brightest run of form since opening the 2021 campaign, Cuiabá have secured back-to-back Serie A victories for the first time this year. With the mood in their camp likely to be at a season-high, the Mato Grosso-based outfit also have one leading marksman enjoying his own purple patch. Once again finding the net against Atlético Goianiense last time out, 35-year-old Elton has bagged a goal in his last three appearances on the spin.
As for the visitors, while the mood in Cuiabá’s camp should be at a season-high heading into Tuesday’s showdown, the same cannot be said for a struggling Corinthians. Putting in what was another sluggish display last time out, Timão were hit with a deserved 2-1 defeat against title-chasers Atlético Mineiro and they are a side really seeking a boost. Failing to bounce back from their 1-0 loss against Fortaleza back on July 12th, Head Coach Sylvinho has seen his side land just a single Serie A victory in any of their last six attempts over the past month. Making the trip to the Arena Pantanal only just hanging onto their spot in the Copa Sudamericana positions, a home double chance appears at attractive odds in midweek.
