Atletico GO vs Ponte Preta
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 8th June 2017
Kick off at 23:30 UK/ 00:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico Teixeira.
Atletico GO are off to a nightmare start to the season in the top flight of the Brazilian football.
The league’s newcomers will be hoping to snatch their first point(s) this Thursday when they host Ponte Preta in the fifth round of the competition.
It is already now clear that Marcelo Cabo will have a mission impossible to save Atletico GO in the elite.
The Dragons have lost each of the opening four fixtures with ease conceding at least three goals in three of the four games during the run.
The latest of the failures came on Tuesday when Bahia claimed a demolishing 3-0 win over the team from Goias.
Ponte Preta will come in the game in much higher spirits after seeing off Sao Paulo on Sunday to end the run of two straight games without a win.
Lucca, who has been red-hot recently netting three goals in last two games, will have plenty of room to exploit all the holes in Atletico’s defensive line.

It is very interesting to note that each of eight head to head encounters between the two sides saw the option of both teams scoring.
Atletico GO claimed a 3-4 win in the previous meeting back from three years ago when the two sides competed in the second tier of the Brazilian football.
