After their respective midweek obligations, Sport Recife and Atletico PR will collide in Round 11 of Brazilian Serie A. The visitors are hoping to extend their impressive four-game winning streak, while Sport Recife are aiming to build on the latest victories and finally find the desired form.
After stunning Santos on the road last weekend with 0-1, Sport Recife added another victory in Campeonato Pernambucano over Serie C side Selgueiro.
The hosts are occupying the 15th position with only 12 points earned. However, their form seems to be on the upward trend now with a draw and two victories in the last three outings.
The visitors are on a four-game winning streak at the moment. They won three out of four games with the minimal result of 0-1 (two away wins). Right-back Yago is in the team of the week deservedly after the brilliant performance against Vitoria.
However, they are still in the lower part of the table, in the 12th place with 14 points earned. Atletico MG has basically revived in the last four games and they will do everything to continue in the same fashion.
Also, their excellent run is dirtied by the 4-0 defeat inflicted on Thursday by Gremio.
