Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Friday, 21st July 2017
Kick off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Adelmar da Costa Carvalho.
Sport Recife ended their tremendous run of form at the weekend when they lost narrowly 2-1 to Botafogo on the road.
Leao da Ilha will have a nice chance to return to the winning ways instantly this Thursday when they are about to take on the rock-bottomed Atletico GO in mid-week’s Matchday No 15 of Brazilian Serie A.
Vanderlei Luxemburgo’s men enjoyed a thrilling run of six consecutive wins without a single goal conceded along the way prior to the mentioned defeat to Botafogo.
Former Real Madrid manager can thus be proud of the job he has been doing in the recent period as Leao da Ilha sit in the top half of the standings after 14 rounds of the competition.
The story is completely different with the visitors who obviously lack quality to stay competitive in the top tier of the Brazilian football.
Dragao managed to make an upset by taking a point from the visit to Sao Paulo two weeks ago, but the weekend behind us saw the team losing the home fixture to Atletico Mineiro.
The match marked the third consecutive outing which saw the league’s newcomers conceding two goals.
