Vitoria vs Atletico PR
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 17 November 2018
Kick-Off at 21:00 UK / 22:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Manoel Barradas (Salvador).
Vitoria extended their winless streak to five matches on Wednesday evening when they played a goalless draw away at fellow strugglers Sport Recife in the mid-week Matchday. They will be desperate to bring the negative thread to and end and pick up a three-pointer on Saturday night when Copa Libertadores hopefuls Atletico PR come to visit Estadio Manoel Barradas.
The hosts actually won only one of past ten games in the league. Such a negative thread dropped them to the danger area. They are two points shy of safety with just four games left to play- A defeat here would obviously represent a massive blow to team’s ambitions, especially if we know they have a very complicated schedule and games against the likes of Cruzeiro, Gremio and Palmeiras upcoming.
Vitoria vs Atletico PR: Head-to-head
Vitoria still have a narrow one-win lead in the head to head record against Atletico PR coming into teams’ 29th meeting.
The visitors have, however, been dominant in the most recent head to head history.
Furacao won three on the spin against Vitoria netting as many as 11 goals in the process.
Vitoria vs Atletico PR: Prediction
Atletico will certainly come into this in much higher spirits. They won 11, drew 2 and lost 2 of past 15 matches in all competitions. Such an amazing spell of form climbed Furacao up to 8th in the league ladder and they are actually just three points short of Atletico Mineiro in 6th place.
Furthermore, Tiago Nunes’ men have an extra path towards Copa Libertadores as they are on the brink of advancing to the Copa Sudamericana final after a 2-0 victory in the first leg of the semi-final tie against Fluminense.
The hosts are really desperate for spoils here, but we can hardly see them beating such an in-form opposition on Saturday. You can have Furacao not to lose at the odds of 1.50 here.
