The hosts opened the new season in a much slower fashion and team’s board is starting to lose patience for the head coach Fernando Diniz who took charge in January this year. Furacao did manage to raise the spirits with back-to-back clean sheets against Parana and Santos, a streak that saw them take four points in the process. However, Atletico quickly returned to the old habits at the weekend when they fell 3-1 to league newcomers America Mineiro on the road.

Atletico Paranaense vs Sao Paulo: Head-to-head

  • Atletico PR lead the head to head tie by three wins heading into their landmark 40th encounter with Sao Paulo.
  • Interestingly, Tricolor have never managed to beat Atletico away from home (13 losses and 7 draws in 20 games so far).
  • Furacao advanced 4-3 on aggregate when the two rivals met in Copa do Brasil R32 in April.
  • Each of last three head to head games saw goals at both ends.

Atletico Paranaense vs Sao Paulo: Predictions

Diego Aguirre’s men struggled to keep the fine attacking form going lately as they notched just one goal in last two matches. They could face troubles creating up front here as well knowing that Furacao’s defense kept things tight at the back in two of last three league matches. We expect to see a different affair from the ones the two sides had in the aforementioned Copa do Brasil legs which is why the main betting option will be Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.61.

Even though Sao Paulo showed much better performances at the start of the season, we do find the value in the 1.45 odds offered for the hosts not to lose here. Atletico have never lost the home match against Tricolor who will come into this low on confidence after claiming only one point in last two league games.

Atletico Paranaense vs Sao Paulo Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.61
  • Atletico PR or Draw Double Chance @ 1.45.
