Player to watch: Helinho

Helinho scored the winning goal in Red Bull Bragantino's 2-1 win against Vitoria last weekend. He has been in sensational form for the club, scoring six times and registering one assist in his last eight appearances across all competitions. The former Sao Paulo forward registered an assist the last time RB Bragantino visited this stadium, and he'll fancy his chances of getting on the scoresheet on Wednesday night.
