Once again, it’s to South America to look for value in betting tips. There is action in the Copa do Brasil tomorrow night that has a couple of intriguing matches, and as such I’ve put together these Copa do Brasil tips and analysis to help increase your betting profits.
Copa do Brasil Betting Tips: Paysandu v Santos
The second leg of this round of 16 tie takes place at the state stadium “Mangueirão” in the early hours of Thursday morning with Santos defending a 2-0 lead. Can Santos complete victory over their Serie B opponents in Belém?
However, Santos represent a step up in quality. Although Santos were knocked out in the quarter-finals of their own state championship, the Campeanato Paulista, that competition is much stronger and is reflected by the fact Santos are in the top flight of the Brazilian national league while Paysandu play in the second tier.
Despite the long trip to Belém I can’t see Santos losing this one, and I’m backing them as my Copa do Brasil tips to win again at 2.05.
Copa do Brasil Betting Tips: Santa Cruz v Atletico Paranaense
Santa Cruz face Atletico Paranaense in the first leg of this round of 16 tie in Recife having been knocked out of the Copa do Nordeste. Will they fare better against their opponents from Curitiba?
Santa Cruz come into this game on the back of semi-final defeats in the Copa do Nordeste and the Campeanato Pernambucano. They have twice in three gamea at home and face a tough tie against opponents from a higher level in Atletico Paranense.
Atletico PR have not won in three either, losing 3-0 twice at home in succession to Coritiba in the Campeanato Paranaense and to San Lorenzo of Argentina in the Copa Libertadores. Their last away win was in the Copa Libertadores against San Lorenzo in March and their last away win in Brazil was in this competition in September against Gremio – and even then they lost on penalties.
I think it’s for this reason that Santa Cruz are favourites despite being a division lower relegated from Serie A last season. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m normally loathe to back against home sides in South America and I think this time I have to go with that instinct, making Santa Cruz my Copa do Brasil tips to win at 2.39.
