Fluminense vs Atletico Goianiense
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 2 September 2020
Kick-off at 23:15 UK
Venue: Maracanã (Rio de Janeiro).
Coming on the back of a disappointing 2019 season, Fluminense may not have many complaints on how they started the 2020 campaign.
Not yet entirely convincing, the Tricolor bagged 3 wins from their 6 games so far and sit at 4th in the table.
They are unbeaten at home, having drew the first game and won the two since. The two wins came against Internacional and Vasco, teams sitting at 1st and 3rd in the table.
Atlético Clube Goianiense meantime are caught at the wrong end of the table. Since starting the season with a 3-0 home win against Flamengo, they are win-less in four, with the latest three being heavy defeats without troubling the scorers.
This is why bookies price the hosts as heavy favorites at 1.57 odd, while a draw at 3.80 and away win at 6.00. But, when you look at their h2h stats, the goals markets btts and over 2.5 goals may be over priced.
Fluminense vs Atletico Goianiense Head-to-head
Last 8 games, Fluminense with 5 wins, Atletico GO with 2 wins and 1 draw.
Their last 5 meetings saw both teams scoring and 4 of them saw over 2.5 goals and 3 with over 3.5 goals.
The corresponding fixture last season at Maracana was a 3-1 win for the hosts.
Fluminense vs Atletico Goianiense Prediction
Fluminense come with a good account of themselves at home and rarely lower their guard against Goianiense. We may do well by agreeing with bookies on identifying the hosts are heavy favourites here, which could be backed at decent 1.57 odd.
Since their meetings rarely disappoint in the final third, we could take over 2.5 goals priced at 2.30 odd and I believe this is a super value bet of the day if everything falls in the right place.
