Competition: Brazil Serie B

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 4/9 @ 1xBet

In what is a must-win showdown at the foot of the Serie B standings, Guarani will welcome Ituano to the Estadio Brinco de Ouro late on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Guarani might have cruised their way to a top-half finish last season, the Bugre find themselves at the heart of a major Serie B nightmare this time around. Only mustering a single victory from any of their first 10 second-tier appearances, they also sit rock-bottom of the table after putting just four points on the board. With there certainly mounting pressure on Umberto Louzer’s shoulders, the Greens have continued to show a string of defensive issues. Last seen over the weekend suffering a real second-half collapse away at Avai as they eventually fell to an action-packed 3-2 defeat, Guarani have lost all of their previous three Serie B showdowns by an aggregate score of 7-2. Opening June with a routine 3-0 drumming at the hands of Mirassol, Tuesday’s hosts have also managed to muster just a single clean sheet over the past month.

As for the visitors, while Ituano might have dragged themselves over the finishing line last season, it appears that the Sao Paulo-based outfit are set for another uphill battle this time around. Last seen over the weekend putting in another nightmare performance as they eventually fell to a 5-3 defeat at home against Paysandu, Alberto Valentim’s men have collected just six points from their first 10 Serie B appearances and they are already four points adrift of second-tier safety. Likewise, losing all of their three appearances since opening June by an aggregate score of 10-5, the former Palmeiras coach has seen his downbeat squad lose four of their previous five outings. With their recent issues underlined by an action-packed 4-2 loss against Coritiba earlier in the month, Ituano have shown their own glaring defensive struggles. With all of their last 11 straight away fixtures finishing with over 1.5 goals, we are backing a similar outcome here.

Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Guarani vs Ituano 4/9 for Tuesday’s Brazil Serie B battle @ 1xBet
