Sao Paulo vs Atletico GO
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 13th July 2017
Kick off at 23:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo.
Sao Paulo will have the chance to finally return to the winning ways this Thursday when they are set to take on the weakest team in the first part of the Serie A season.
Atletico GO currently sit at the very foot of the standings with no more than seven points from opening 12 rounds of the competition.
Tricolor played a very interesting game with Santos at the weekend when they managed to pull two goals back after conceding three by in-form Jonathan Copete.
However, Shaylon’s and Arboleda’s goals are important for boosting up the team’s confidence ahead of the upcoming challenges in the season.
Sao Paulo, who are generally much more dangerous when they play on the home patch, have had a very tough schedule over the last couple of weeks facing the likes of Atletico Mineiro, Atletico PR, Fluminense, Flamengo and Santos in last five games.
Dragao had a very nice opportunity to end their dismal run and grab the home win on Saturday when they hosted the struggling Vitoria side, but they dropped the ball conceding an 97th minute goal to lose the game and extend the crisis.
Atletico are yet to avoid a defeat on the road where they have lost each of their five games since the start of the season failing to find the back of the net in last four of the outings during the run.
Sao Paulo vs Atletico GO: Head to head
Interestingly, the head to head tie is all levelled at two wins, draws and losses for each of the teams.
This will be their first meeting since 2012 when Dragao last time played in the elite class of the Brazilian football.
Sao Paulo vs Atletico GO: Prediction
As we stated in the introduction, this will be an ultimate opportunity for Sao Paulo to end the negative streak and finally clinch a victory.
Atletico are one of the weakest teams in the league and Tricolor should not allow an upset here.
