Red Bull Bragantino have struggled for results of late. They played out a 1-1 draw against Coritiba last time out, with Artur’s early opener being canceled out after Eric Ramires gave away a clumsy penalty just before the break.
The Massa Bruta sit 12th in the league standings with 14 points from 11 games and will now be targeting maximum points on Wednesday as they seek to move up the table.
Coritiba are not in much better form either, losing 2-0 to league leaders Palmeiras in their last game, with the result marking their fourth winless outing in their last five games.
The Glorioso have picked up 15 points from 11 games this season and sit seventh in the league table. They will now be looking to shake off their latest results and get their campaign back on track this week.
