Atletico GO vs Atletico Paranaense
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Saturday, 17h June 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico Teixeira.
Atletico PR finally managed to claim their first victory of the new season in Wednesday’s away fixture with Atletico Mineiro.
Can Hurricane back it up and make it two on the bounce at the weekend when they travel to Goias to take on the league’s newcomers Atletico GO at Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico Teixeira?
The hosts were also off to dismal start in the elite class of the Brazilian football, but they picked up consecutive wins on the home ground to escape the rock bottom of the standings after seven rounds of the competition.
Everaldo has been especially inspired as he was the one who notched a brace in each of the last two home wins over Ponte Preta and Avai.
Eduardo Baptista, on the other side, has huge troubles with his team’s efficiency in the final third.
Hurricane scored no more than four goals in seven opening outings which is certainly way below the standards for one of the main candidates for the very top of the table in Serie A.
However, Atletico did not concede plenty either and the victory over Mineiro rivals will certainly instil some confidence into them ahead of the upcoming challenges.
Atletico GO vs Atletico Paranaense: Head to head
The team from Parananese has been completely dominant winning five out of six head o head clashes with the Dragons.
The only win for Goianense came ten years ago in Copa do Brasil.
Atletico GO vs Atletico Paranaense: Prediction
The league’s newcomers have been pretty impressive on the home pitch in last two clashes, but finding goals against the rock-solid defense of Hurricane will be a serious task for Doriva’s side.
The visitors have more quality in their squad and they will know how to keep things tight at the back which will be their main weapon in leaving Goias undefeated.
