Internacional vs Athletico Paranaense Predictions & Analysis
Internacional will continue their battle for a place in the Copa Libertadores on Saturday evening when they host Athletico Paranaense on Matchday No 32 in the Serie A.
The hosts are three points shy of the top-six spots at the moment and have a mountain to climb to break into the positions that lead to the elite continental competition next season.
The team led by Diego Aguirre have been playing hot and colt pretty much throughout the entire campaign.
They have just ended a four-game winless streak with a 1-0 victory over relegation-threatened Gremio last weekend.
However, Internacional had no more than two shots on target in that game. They could face big problems trying to break Athletic Parananese down on Saturday.
The visitors have also had a rollercoaster campaign since the beginning of the season. They, however, came up with a strong performance last weekend when Alberto Valentim’s men dispatched the fourth-placed RB Bragantino 0-2 on the road.
Key Stats for Betting
- Internacional won six and drew two of the last eight home matches in all competitions.
- Four of the last five outings they played at home saw goals scored at both ends.
- Athletico Paranaense bagged five goals in the back-to-back away wins over Flamengo (0-3 in the Copa do Brasil) and RB Bragantino (0-2 in the Serie A).
- Both teams were on target in three of the last four head to head outings.
