Atletico PR vs Vitoria
Brasileiro Serie A
Sunday, 25th June 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Joaquim Americo Guimaraes.
Atletico PR finally managed to improve their performances after a dreadful opening to the new Serie A season.
Furacao will have a nice chance to grab their fourth win on the trot this weekend when they host Vitoria in the 10th round of the competition.
Eduardo Baptista has found the winning formula with Thiago Heleno and Wanderson as centre backs.
The team kept three consecutive clean sheets in wins over Atletico Mineiro, Atletico GO and Sao Paulo.
However, the main problems for Baptista lie in the attack as he obviously lacks a real predator in the final third. It was the defender Wanderson who made the difference in mid-week’s win over Sao Paulo.
Luckily for Baptista, Vitoria are far from being the best defensive team in the league as they have been fairly easy to break down recently.
The team led by Alexandre Gallo ended the positive run of three consecutive fixtures without a defeat on Wednesday evening when they dropped points to Santos losing 0-2 on the home patch.
Atletico PR vs Vitoria: Head to head
Only three out of 25 H2H matches between the two sides ended without a winner. Vitoria have been slightly more successful historically as they lead the tie 13-9.
It is also interesting to note that most of their previous head to had encounters offered true goal fests. This includes a 3-2 win for Vitoria in their previous meeting back in November last year.
Atletico PR vs Vitoria: Prediction
Vitoria shocked Sport Recife in their last away fixture but we don’t see them repeating such success against super motivated Atletico Paranaense.
The hosts will hope to build on their impressive defensive displays and try and keep their net untouched for the fourth straight time.
