Ituano VS Goiás

Ituano faces Goiás at Novelli Júnior Stadium, in Itu, in a match for the 3rd round of the 2015 Brazil Cup. This is a match between very uneven teams, since Goiás plays in the A Series and Ituano hasn’t even gotten a place in the D Series. Ituano eliminated Joinville and Portuguesa in the previous rounds and Goiás eliminated Santo André and Independente-PA.

Analysis of Ituano

Although they haven’t had a 2015 year as good as 2014, Ituano has done well in the Brazil Cup. In the State championship, the team didn’t win the title again, despite having kept most of the players. However, they did change coach and let a few important players leave, which contributed to the team’s elimination in the first stage.
They tied too many times for the state championship, more than half of the matches, which was fatal, particularly in the last rounds, when they needed points the most. Their offence was weak and didn’t get many goals in important matches and the team tied 4 of the last 5 matches. Burt their defence was one of the best. Now, they are focused on moving on in the Cup. For that their defensive strength is key, since not conceding goals in this away match is crucial.

Confirmed Lineup: Fábio, Naylhor, Perí, Dick, Léo, Ewerton, Cristian, Jonatan Lima, Claudinho, Clayson, Ronaldo.
Coach: Tarcísio Pugliese.

Analysis of Goiás

Goiás is in good shape after winning the state championship. They have therefore reached their goal in this competition and have ended the championship with no defeats and one of the best defenses. Their offence was the best, with the most goals scored. However, the club wishes to do even better and decided to change coach, hiring Hélio dos Anjos to replace Wagner Lopes.

The new coach brought a few new players with him, who seem to have improved the team’s game, since they have improved in the A Series. After a 0-0 draw in their debut in the championship, against Vasco, they have beaten Atlético Paranaense at home. They are well organized tactically and even afforded to give away ball possession and take advantage of counterattacks, winning 2-0.

Confirmed Lineup: Renan, Alex Alves, Felipe Macedo, Fred, Felipe Menezes, Wiliam Kozlowski, Rodrigo, Everton, Juliano, Bruno Henrique, Erik.
Coach: Danny Sérgio.

Betting suggestion:

Although Goiás is clearly superior to Ituano, they are more focused on reaching the South American Cup, therefore an elimination from this Cup would come in handy. Obviously they will not give away the match, but are likely to spare most of their usual starting 11. On the other hand, Ituano is highly motivated to move on in this competition, therefore, we believe will win and suggest a bet in their favour with the draw no bet option.
