Coritiba VS Fortaleza

Preview
This Wednesday, Coritiba and Fortaleza face at Couto Pereira, in Curitiba, in a 2nd leg match for the 2nd round of the 2015 Brazilian Cup. This is a match between teams from different Series of the Brazilian Championship: Coritiba, from A and Fortaleza, from C. In the previous round, Coritiba faced Villa Nova-MG and won the first match 3-0, guarantying qualification without the need for a 2nd leg match. Fortaleza have had harder matches against River-PI, but won both matches. In the 1st leg match, Fortaleza won 2-1 at home.

Analysis of Coritiba

In the beginning of this year Coritiba have had good exhibitions, but that wasn’t enough to win the Paranaense Championship again. After the disappointing last season, the club reformulated the squad, which has had good results so far. Their offense, the best of the first stage, was decisive and allowed them to qualify in the lead. After defeating Cascavel and Londrina, they faced Operário in the final and were defeated in both final matches.
 
After struggling against relegation last year, Coritiba made their debut in this year’s competition last Saturday with a loss. In an away match against Chapecoense, they scored the first goal but allowed the opponents to come back and get a 2-1 win. With this result they now have a series of 4 consecutive losses. Now, they need to put an end to these negative results and win this match to qualify for the next Cup round.

Confirmed Lineup: Bruno Brigido, Carlinhos, Leandro Almeida, Welinton, Ivan, João Paulo, Ruy, Thiago Galhardo, Helder, Negueba, Rafhael Lucas.
Coach: Pachequinho.

Analysis of Fortaleza

Fortaleza have had a good State Championship, ending the first stage as the third best team and one of the best defences of the competition. In the second stage, they were the best team and maintained their good defence, suffering only 3 goals in 6 matches. After eliminating Icasa in the semi-final, they faced their greatest rivals, Ceará, in the final. After winning 2-1 at home, the second match was tied 1-1 and they were ready to celebrate, but suffered a goal in the last minutes of the match. But they somehow managed to come back and score in the last play of the match, winning the state title.
 
Now they have this 2nd leg match and wish to take advantage of the 1st leg win to guarantee qualification. This first match was poor in goal opportunities, but Fortaleza still managed to score the first goal and Coritiba somehow got the equalizer. In the second half it seemed the game would improve, but Fortaleza scored and the game had even less goal opportunities.

Fortaleza is likely to play for a draw and their line-up will probably be: Deola; Tinga, Genílson, Adalberto and Radar; Auremir, Vinicius Hess, Pio, Wanderson and Daniel Sobralense; Cassiano.


Confirmed Lineup: Deola, Adalberto, Tinga, Wanderson Carvalho, Lima, Radar, Daniel Sobralense, Auremir, Pio, Corrêa, Cassiano.
Coach: Flávio Araújo.

Betting suggestion:

Coritiba have a competitive team and need to come back from a negative result. Therefore, using their home advantage, they are likely to attack intensively. Moreover, they have some technical superiority over their opponents, so the most likely scenario for this match is a Coritiba win.
