Atletico GO vs Santos
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Saturday, 1st July 2017
Kick off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico.

Atletico GO are finally back at Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico where they will try to end the dismal streak of three consecutive losses without a single goal scored.

However, this will be quite a task for Doriva’s side since they are about to host Santos who are among the main candidates for the title at the end of the season.

Atletico GO

The negative run dropped the league’s newcomers to the very foot of the Serie A standings.

Doriva’s men only managed to avoid defeats in two of their opening ten matches in the elite class of the Brazilian football.

However, both of their wins came in front of their fans where they showed impressive displays netting three goals against Ponte Preta and Avai each.

Santos

Peixe have had a turbulent period at the start of the new Serie A campaign.

Levir Culpi took charge of the team after a super slow start during the Dorival Junior’s reign.

The team was on a hot run of form under Culpi all up until last weekend when Santos shockingly lost the home fixture with Sport Recife to lose touch with Corinthians at the very top of the standings.

Atletico GO vs Santos: Head to head

The head to head stats is all tied at two wins, draws and losses for each of the teams.

Their previous meeting, however, happened back in 2012 when Atletico GO played in the elite last time before earning the promotion last year.

However, we must say that visits to Goias have not been among the most pleasant adventures for Peixe who have lost in both of their last two trips to Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico.

Atletico GO vs Santos: Prediction

The visitors will be super motivated to bounce back and stay in touch with the leading teams.

We expect a very tight match with one or none goals to make the difference since both teams fancy defensive football.
