Draw at the half-time break

We expect another draw at the break in the Copa do Brasil second leg encounter between Bahia and Vila Nova. A 47th-minute opener in the first leg through Rodriguinho earned Bahia a deserved away victory. However, the hosts were unable to get a second goal despite making five changes from the 64th minute. It shows just how strong Vila Nova  is at the back. Another strong defensive display by the visitors should prevent help them avoid conceding an early goal in this fixture.

Bahia to win again in the second leg

Bahia was the favourites to win the first leg and which they did, albeit, after several shots on target. Getting victory away from home was equally a booster to the Dado Cavalcanti and his squad. In this second leg, the Brazilian tactician should fancy a double victory against Vila Nova in round three of Copa do Brasil.

We expect a low scoring affair

We also think this game will not have a lot of goals. A 1-0 defeat in the first leg still leaves the visitors with room to turn things around. However, Bahia is no pushover, having lost only once at home in the last three home fixtures. But given the significance of this fixture, progressing to the next round of Copa do Brasil means both teams must not only look for scoring opportunities but also defend from the back.

Match Preview: Bahia Hopes to Get another Victory in the Second Leg

This game is for Bahia to win but a 1-0 victory in the first leg leaves them exposed against a team that looks better defensively. There have been lots of red cards in previous fixtures between these teams, with 6 out of 9 game having red cards. Find out more in our game preview.

Bahia

Bahia boasts of 5 victories and 2 draws in the previous 9 encounters with Vila Nova. With such a record, the hosts should fancy a better result in this fixture, possibly double victory in the two legs of Copa do Brasil fixture. The hosting manager also boats 2 victories in three meetings with the visiting manager, which should further boost the confidence of the home team. Moreover, the home side will be keen to avoid a red card as they have been the unlucky side in 4 out of 6 encounters with Vila Nova.

Vila Nova

For Vila Nova, this game is a must-win or get shipped out of the Copa do Brasil competition. With that in mind, the visiting manager should be keen to make a tactical change in the second leg. Failing to secure victory in the first leg is especially worrying for Wagner Augusto Lopes and his travelling squad. After 8 games in charge, the Vila Nova manager averages 1.12 points per match, which should equally worry the tactician as he prepares to face Bahia manager, Dado Cavalcanti, for the fourth time. The hosting manager averages 1.67 points per match after 36 games in charge.
