Atletico Mineiro vs Atletico Paranaense
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 14th June 2017
Kick-off at 23:30 UK/ 0:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Raimundo Sampaio.
Atletico PR are shockingly still the only team without a victory in the new term of Serie A.
Can the Hurricanes take advantage of Mineiro’s slower start to the season to grab the breakthrough win?
The Roosters have been on a good run in June as they claimed two wins and drew with Palmeiras without conceding a single goal along the way.
However, the weekend behind us has seen them dropping point to Vitoria which left Roger Machado’s men in the bottom half of the standings.
The visitors did have a tricky schedule at the start of the competition, but it can’t be justification for a horrendous streak of results.
The Hurricanes took only two points from the opening six fixtures. The latest of the failures came on Sunday evening when they lost to Santos 0-2 on the home pitch.
Atletico Mineiro vs Atletico PR: Head to head
The team from Paranaense has been more successful historically, but they are winless in last two meetings with Mineiro.
The Roosters claimed a narrow 1-0 victory from their previous meeting in August last year when Robinho scored the only goal of the game.
Atletico Mineiro vs Atletico PR: Prediction
Robinho and Fred have been phenomenal in the group stage of Copa Libertadores and the clash with the struggling Atletico PR side is a perfect opportunity for them to bring this form to the domestic competition as well.
The serious of tough matches for the visitors will be continued this Wednesday and there is just nothing to suggest the end to their crisis.
