Parana vs Atletico Paranaense Preview and Predictions

Parana vs Atletico Paranaense
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 27 May 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Durival de Britto e Silva, Curitiba.

The stakes are high ahead of the huge Parana derby on Sunday afternoon as neither of two managers has the luxury of affording a failure here. Tricolor da Vila instantly felt the strength of a higher division football as they are yet to pick up their first victory since joining Serie A for the first time in last 11 years.

Rogerio Micale’s side scored just three goals in the openings ix games taking no more than two points along the way. They are already four points shy of the safe zone this early in the season, and a serious turnaround in form is required if Parana are to stay competitive in the relegation scrap before the start of the second half of the campaign.

However, if such a poor kick off to the new season for the newly-promoted outfit was expected, Atletico’s troubles in the drop zone were certainly not. The visitors are on a horrific streak of five straight defeats in all competitions and a result here is crucial for Fernando Diniz to keep his job as the head coach after such a dreadful start to the season.

Parana vs Atletico Paranaense Head-to-head

Teams have already met this year in late-January when Atletico PR took a demolishing 0-3 victory in the Campeonato Paranense clash.

Parana did not score a single goal in last three meetings with Furacao.

Atetico lead the H2H tie by ten victories coming into 44th tie against Parana.

Parana vs Atletico Paranaense Prediction

Both teams are fairly easy to break down at the start of the season which is why we have to see the value in backing goals at both ends at the odds of 2.00. Atletico shipped two or more goals in each of last five games across competitions, while Parana allowed six goals in back-to-back home defeats to Corinthians and Sport Recife before holding Gremio to a goalless draw last time out.

The quality is no doubts on Atletico’s side and the clash with Parana is a perfect occasion for them to find the way out of the huge crisis. The away win has value at 2.45 if we know that Furacao destroyed their counterparts 0-3 when they met in January this year in Campeonato Paranense.
