Athletico Paranaense vs Internacional
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 14 July 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Arena da Baixada (Curitiba).
The home team were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw in their last game at home against Flamengo in the Copa do Brasil. In the league, however, their last match on home soil against Fluminense saw them record a resounding 3-0 win.
Gonzalez broke the deadlock in the first twenty minutes, followed by a goal each from Roni and Marcelo to seal the deal. The squad have not been faring well since then though and have lost their last two games on the road.
The visitors have not been on a winning run of form in their previous fixtures away from home either. The team admitted defeat in four of their last five outings and were held to a draw in the other.
The hosts are currently twelfth in the league with ten points from nine matches, while the visiting side, who are undefeated at home, are fourth with sixteen points from the same number of fixtures.

Athletico Paranaense vs Internacional Prediction
The hosts are more than likely to come out on top when the squads lock horns with each other this Sunday.
The home team have scored eight goals so far on home soil and have conceded not more than three in the process. Their counterparts who have been poor away from home have scored just one goal while conceding five.
The visitors have also not registered a single win on the road so far, and may well have to wait another week before they can find one.
We can certainly expect both teams to score by the end of the ninety minutes, however, the win, is certain to swing in favor of the home side.
