Galvez – ABC SOCCER PICKS
Galvez and ABC face each other in Arena da Floresta, in a match for this phase of the Copa do Brasil (1st Round). These two teams have never faced each other before, so this will be their first direct confrontation. In this match the home factor may be decisive, since both teams present considerable differences in the results obtained at home and as a visitor.
The home team will make its debut in this edition of the Copa do Brasil with the intention of conquering a positive result, taking advantage of the home factor. This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 defeats in his stadium. The team comes to this match after a home victory with Andirá by (4-1). In the last 6 home matches Galvez has won 4, tied 1 and lost 1. Defensive consistency has not been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored with regularity, as they scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches.
The team of Galvez is good in the season, with a 100% advantage in the matches played this year. Galvez plays at home and needs to win to move forward in the competition. But that may not be a problem, because the team comes from two goals in the last two games for the state championship. The team is very competitive and that has made a big difference throughout the season. The coach will present on the field what is best available in the squad, to continue dreaming of making history in the Copa del Brasil.
The visiting team plays its first match in this edition of the Copa do Brasil with the intention of winning a positive result as a visitor. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses in away matches; against 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. In the last match they played, for La Potiguar, they tied with Força and Luz at home by (0-0). In its last 10 games as a visitor the ABC records 1 win, 2 draws and 7 losses. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In 15 games, they only got 1 comeback in the 6 games in which they suffered the first goal.
ABC is going to visit the strong team of Galvez, needing to draw or win to move forward in the competition. The ABC team does not do well in the last matches they have played, it comes from two defeats and only has one away win this season. The team has many difficulties to beat away from their domains, so they will have to have a lot of attention in the defensive to guarantee at least a draw and move on in the Brazilian Cup. The coach will not have important absences for this game.
