Brazil – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 12 August 2020
Kick-off at 23:15 UK/ 24:15 CET
Venue: Arena da Baixada (Curitiba).
Athletico Paranaense is on an unbeaten run post lockdown, including their Campeonato Paranaense fixtures in the schedule. Their opening match in Serie A was on the road against Fortaleza, and the former won it with a 0-2 score on the board.
Three of their last five wins have been recorded at home, and they will return home after two consecutive away games in their schedule. Besides, the host has kept a clean sheet in four of the last five home matches across all major competitions.
Having found out that 10 of their squad tested positive for COVID-19, out of which eight of those would have featured in the starting line-up on Sunday, Goias’ match with Sao Paulo was called off in the last minute.

Athletico Paranaense vs Goias Prediction
Athletico Paranaense is a stronger side than the visitors, and since the traveling side will need to change their playing eleven due to COVID cases; expect the Verdao to go downhill in the game.
The home win in full-time will probably bet the best bet for the punters, as the host has a strong form at home and is likely to use their home ground advantage in the game.
With the host at a better form in the league, expect a couple of goals in the fixture. The tip for over 1.5 goals will thus serve as a suitable option for the punters.
