Atletico PR vs Santos
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 11th June 2017
Kick off at 23:00 UK Time
Venue: Arena da Baixada, Curitiba.
Atletico are second from bottom in the Brazilian Serie A, and have got off to a terrible start where from 5 games they have no wins. However recent form has improved with at least 2 draws from the last 3 games played. Those draws came against Flamengo and more impressively Fluminense who are 4th in the league.
Atletico need to shore up their defence as they have already let in 11 goals averaging at just over 2 shipped a game. Only Vasco who has conceded 14 have a worse record.
Santos beat Botafogo in their last match and that was a very welcomed result given that they had just lost two games in a row. Santos are struggling for goals where they have netted just 4 this season.
Santos have lost both of their away games, first to Fluminense and then to Corinthians.
