Aron Wright - June 3, 2018

Parana vs Fluminense
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 5th June 2018
Kick-Off at 00:00 UK / 01:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Durival de Britto e Silva, Curitiba.

Parana returned to the top flight after 11 years, but they really seem to struggle at the start of the campaign obviously feeling the strength of the higher division football to the max at the moment. A serious turnaround in form is required for Rogerio Micale’s men if they are to move away from the very foot of the league standings anytime soon.

Tricolor da Vila took only three points from eight matches so far failing to find the back of the net more than three times along the way. It makes their attacking line the worst in the league and they’ll certainly face huge troubles improving such a devastating record against the in-form Fluminense side ahead of the fixture set to close the Matchday No 9 on Monday evening at Estadio Durival de Britto e Silva in Curitiba.

Parana vs Fluminense: Head-to-head

  • Teams have five wins apiece ahead of their 13th head to head encounter.
  • This will be the first meeting between the two sides since 2007.
  • Parana won each of last three home outings against Tricolor.

Parana vs Fluminense: Predictions

The visitors head into this as clear form favourites having won two and drawn one of last three league ties. Nonetheless, the head coach Abel Braga will have a huge concern regarding the injury of his star man and top scorer Pedro who had to be subbed in mid-week goalless draw away with Gremio.

Knowing that Parana were able to keep thing s tight in their recent home outings against Gremio and Atletico PR, the Under 2.5 goals FT pops up as by far the best of the betting options, set at the 1.53 odds here.

Braver tipsters cane even chase the goalless draw longshot at 7.00 as two of last three games Tricolor da Vila played ended with such scenario.
