Brasileiro Serie A

Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Parque.
The defending champions finally seem to have caught the wanted rhythm given they have picked up four wins and two draws in last six matches in all competitions.
They will have a very tough task to maintain the hot run of form this Sunday when they host red-hot Atletico PR in one of the most interesting fixtures of the Matchday No 19 in Serie A.
The latest of the successes for Verdao came on Wednesday evening when goals from Igor Rabello (own goals) and Deyverson secured them a highly-important away win over Botafogo.
It was the third consecutive league win for Cuca’s men who have significantly improved their attacking displays ever since suffering the 0-2 defeat to Corinthians in mid-July.
Furacao have had a rollercoaster campaign since the start of the season, but they also seem to have caught the right shape as they enter the match at Allianz Parque on the back of subsequent wins over Vasco da Gama and Avai.
Fabiano Soares’ men have been especially impressive in mid-week’s thumping of the league’s newcomers as Guilherme and Eduardo Henrique bagged a brace each in a demolishing 5-0 victory at Estadio Joaquim Americo Guimaraes.
