Atletico PR vs Corinthians
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 21 November 2018
Kick-Off at 23:45 UK / 00:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Joaquim Americo Guimaraes (Curitiba).
Atletico PR continued their exquisite form in the finish of the Serie A season on Saturday when they dispatched relegation strugglers Vitoria 1-2 on the road. The fantastic spell of form brought them right on the brink of the top-six in the league ladder. They are now just three points shy of Atletico Mineiro in sixth with three games left to play. Can they maintain such thread and secure the Copa Libertadores football next term?
Next up for Tiago Nunes and his men are last year champions Corinthians. Timao have been nowhere near the title defense this time around. The visitors will be even lucky to secure a place in Copa Sudamericana for next season given they sit 12th after 35 rounds of the competition.
Corinthians did end their dismal thread of three games without a win at the weekend when they dispatched Vasco da Gama 1-0 in Sao Paulo. Left winger Mateus Vital was the man who made the difference netting the only goal of the game five minutes after the break.
Atletico PR vs Corinthians: Head-to-head
Teams won 12 games apiece coming into their 36th head to head encounter.
They shared spoils in a goalless draw when they met each other in this term of Serie A back in early-August.
Three or more goals were seen just once in past five head to head outings.
Atletico PR vs Corinthians: Prediction
We’d not be surprised to see the low-scoring head to head trend continued here given both team’s form ahead of the clash at Estadio Joaquim Americo Guimaraes. None of past four games Timao played in the league saw three or more goals scored. The visitors notched just two goals in the process and we can hardly see them on the scoreline when they take on the in-form Atletico PR side.
Furacao have been just ruthless towards their rivals on the home patch lately. They won 13 of past 14 home outings in all competitions which is why we must back the home win at 1.57 here.
