Brazilian football has a number of state-level championships, in addition to the national league. These tournaments are often as fiercely competitive as the national league, and one of the most competitive ones is the Campeonato Carioca.
There is even a second division to this state championship, called the Campeonato Carioca Serie B. The winner of the Serie B is promoted to the first division for the following season. Being part of the Rio de Janeiro state football championship, the Campeonato Carioca B is an intriguing option for sports betting fans, with BetGold having betting tips on the matches as well as other states football betting predictions.
Carioca B Championship Format And Background
As stated earlier, the Campeonato Carioca B is the second division of the Rio de Janeiro state football championship, with the first division being known as the Campeonato Carioca. While it is the first division which is extremely high-profile, due to the presence of four of Brazil’s biggest teams – Botafogo, Fluminense, Vasco da Gama and Flamengo, the second division is well-supported and competitive as well.
In fact, the second division has one of Brazil’s oldest sides, and one of the founding members of the Campeonato Carioca, in America Football Club. At present, the Campeonato Carioca B has 21 teams, with the winner being promoted to the first division and the last-placed side being demoted to the third tier. As such, with a round-robin league format, there are enough matches for betting fans to be able to back teams based on the odds offered.
Carioca B Historic Teams
Friburguense are the reigning champions, and have thus been promoted to the Campeonato Carioca for next season. A number of different teams have won the Campeonato Carioca B title in its history, as it was formed at the same time as the first division in 1906.
With the winners getting promoted, there has not been an era of domination by any one side. However, America are one of the more successful sides playing in the Campeonato Carioca B at the moment, since they have been promoted to the first tier multiple times, even winning the Campeonato Carioca itself on seven occasions.
America has won the second division three times, also winning the cups on multiple occasions, and thus are one of the teams to look out for from a betting perspective, with odds often in their favour on online betting portals. Friburguense, the current champions, have won the second division thrice, all in the last 25 years, and are thus one of the better sides in recent years. Other notable teams include Cabofriense (five titles) and Goytacaz (two titles), with those wins coming in recent years.
