Analysis of Fluminense

The home team comes to this stage of the Copa do Brasil (8th Finals) after having eliminated: Santa Cruz, Luverdense, Ypiranga Erechim and Ríver. They come to this match after a home loss against Botafogo by (0‑1). Fluminense has won 4, tied 3 and lost 3 of the last 10 home matches. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 1 of the last 6 matches for this competition. Goals have been frequent in their home matches, as 14 of the last 34 have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 26 out of 34 have ended with Under 2,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 7 of their 15 matches, and have only turned the score around in 2. there is 1 period that stands out in the last 20 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 5 of their 13 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Fluminense's goal is to raise this cup but they know that their walk will not be easy going forward. The team will have the advantage of playing the next game next to their fans, so they want to take advantage to win the victory and arrive more calmly for the second leg. The expected is that Fluminense take the initiative of the game, thus going up and looking for the attacks moves. The coach should take to the field what is best at his disposal.

Confirmed Lineup: Rodolfo, Nino, Matheus Ferraz, Gilberto, Ganso, Allan, Caio Henrique, Daniel, Y. González, Luciano, Leo Melo.
Coach: Fernando Diniz.

Analysis of Cruzeiro

The team plays its first match in this edition of the Copa do Brasil with the intention of getting a positive away result. In their last match, for the Serie A, they got an away loss against Internacional by (3‑1). In the last 10 away matches Cruzeiro has won 5, tied 3 and lost 2. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 12 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in 9 of those 12 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 11 of them.

Cruzeiro have been showing great football on the pitch in the season, and need to keep pace, so that they can achieve their goals. Playing away from home, the difficulties should appear, so it is important that the team are very connected throughout the entire duel. Cruzeiro's desire is to seek at least an away draw, which will already be very positive. The coach should not have significant absences for this match.

Confirmed Lineup: Fábio, Léo, Dedé, L. Orejuela, Egídio, Robinho, Henrique, Rodriguinho, L. Romero, Pedro Rocha, Fred.
Coach: Mano Menezes.

Betting suggestion:

Playing at home and needing to gain advantage on the scoreboard, Fluminense should go to the field with a single goal, to attack intensely. Cruzeiro hold a good team and should try to play on the opponent's error, thus pressing aggressively and at the same time trying to fit the counterattacks. We expect a game played and with two teams going in search of the victory. We see a certain technical superiority for the side of the visitors, and for this fact our bet will be on Cruzeiro's win without the option of the draw.
