Juazeirense to win the second leg

Juazeirense failed to win the first leg of the Copa do Brasil fixture against Cruzeiro in the only previous meeting between these two teams. However, we think the hosts should get a much-deserved victory in the second leg. Despite a 1-0 setback in the first leg, Juazeirense is a better side defensively. We expect a hard-fought victory for the hosts who managed three shots on target in the first leg, the same as Cruzeiro, despite having only 31% ball possession. Cruzeiro’s unpredictable defence will likely be their biggest undoing in this fixture.

A low scoreline

We don’t see many goals in this match. Despite being in a lower division, Juazeirense staged a resilient performance against Cruzeiro in the first leg of Copa do Brasil that ended 1-0 in favour of the visitors. We expect another low scoring outcome, especially because the hosts are stronger defensively while Cruzeiro will look to defend their 1-0 victory in the first leg. The visitors have lost five games in the last ten fixtures, three of which have been on the road. Thus, we expect the visiting manager, Felipe Conceicao, to beef up his defence line if he must get at least a point in this fixture.

Juazeirense to open the scoring

Home advantage and stronger defence are the reasons why we think the hosts should score first. It is the only way of preventing double defeat in the two legs of Copa do Brasil. Moreover, the hosting manager, Carlos Rabello, should adopt a more offensive approach in the second leg to go ahead early in the game.

Game Preview: Will Juazeirense Overturn 1-0 Defeat in the First Leg?

The possibility of overturning a 1-0 defeat in the first leg is premised on the fact that Juazeirense didn’t lose with a big margin. But Carlos Rabello and his squad do it?

Juazeirense

Overturning a 1-0 defeat in the first leg should be Carlos Rabello’ main aim and that means he must get a 2-0 result. However, with five players having a yellow card in the first leg, the hosting manager should make some changes to his squad on match day. Six corner kicks against eleven corners for the visitors in the first leg proved just how much quality the Juazeirense can bring into this fixture. Both teams had three shots on target but5 Juazeirense won 70 duels against 59 for Cruzeiro in the first leg. The hosts were also better at tackling, completing 26 of them against 10 for the visitors. Moreover, Juazeirense made more clearances and interceptions than Cruzeiro, meaning they only need to be more clinical in the final third to get a good result in this fixture.

Cruzeiro

Despite being the favourites to win the first leg, Cruzeiro’s narrow victory of 1-0 puts them in a precarious situation before this fixture. The visiting manager must not only improve his side defensively but also work on getting more a higher conversation rate for shots on target. The visiting side had fewer tackles, clearances and interceptions in the first leg, a weakness that could leave them exposed in the second leg.
