Aletico PR vs Vitoria
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 29 July 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Joaquim Americo Guimaraes, Curitiba.
There is no light at the end of the tunnel to be seen for Atletico PR in this Serie A season. Furacao are going through a very turbulent period after collecting only 10 points in the opening 14 rounds of the competition. It is only enough to place them second from bottom as they are as many as six points shy of the safe zone and the position currently held by Bahia.
Sunday’s affair with Vitoria will thus be of a massive importance for the hosts because a defeat here could see then sink deeper towards the second tier of the Brazilian football. Leao da Barra barely avoided the relegation in the previous term. They are two points above the line at the moment, thanks to the super important mid-week win over Sport Recife three days ago.
Atletico PR vs Vitoria: Head-to-head
- Vitoria still lead the head to head tie, but now only by two wins as Atletico PR won each of last two meetings with them.
- Furacao lost just one of last six encounters with Leao da Barra.
- Seven of last eight head to head matches saw goals at both ends.
- Last three H2H meetings offered the total of 15 goals (five per game).
Atletico PR vs Vitoria: Prediction
Atletico made the change on the bench appointing Tiago Nunes as the new head coach, but it brought little joy to their fans who saw their team lose five and draw one of last six league games. Keeping things tight at the back is the issue no 1 for Nunes as Furacao shipped two goals in each of last three matches in Serie A.
On the other hand, they will be up against the side which took one point from last four travels, conceding as many as seven goals in last two away games against Sao Paulo and Bahia. Knowing that last three H2H games produced as many as five goals on average, we just have to try and take advantage of the 2.50 odds offered for the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS bet.
As this is one of the cast trains to catch for Furacao, we will alternatively back Atletico PR to win & BTTS at 4.00.
