The Oeste is near the sticking area, so expect to show good football from now on, so they can add points and get out of the situation they are in. Playing inhouse it is important to impose themselves on the pitch, so they’re looking for attacking moves from the early minutes. In the last round, Oeste was defeated away by Atlético-GO by 2-0. The coach should not have major absences for this match.
