Competition: Brazil Serie B

Market: Atletico GO double chance

Odds: 4/11 @ Pribet

Hoping to find a route into the promotion places on Sunday night, Atletico GO will make the trip to a struggling Ponte Preta.

Starting with the hosts, while Ponte Preta might have opened up the 2023 campaign with their sights set on mounting a genuine top-half charge, Joao Brigatti’s side have struggled to find any kind of stability. Despite being last seen eventually snatching an action-packed 3-3 draw away at Sport Recife, the Sao Paulo-based outfit have failed to muster a single Serie B victory from any of their previous seven appearances across all competitions. With that extended rut stemming all the way back to August 26th, fans around the Moises Lucarelli are firmly looking over their shoulder at a looming relegation scrap. Facing what appears to be another stern challenge this weekend, Ponte Preta have also continued to show a string of issues in front of their own supporters. Last seen in Sao Paulo getting hit with a routine 3-0 drumming at the hands of Mirassol, Sunday’s hosts have claimed just a single Serie B win at the Moises Lucarelli since the start of August.

As for the visitors, although Atletico GO might have lost their Serie A status last season, it is no secret that the Dragons have their sights set on securing an immediate top-flight return. Last seen putting in another rugged performance as they claimed a 1-0 victory at home against Ituano, Jair Ventura’s men should find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat just a single point adrift of breaking into the promotion places, the former Goias boss will be calling on his top-four contenders to lay down another marker here. In fact, along with signing off September with a 3-1 romp against Criciuma, Atletico GO have collected 15 points from just their previous six Serie B appearances. It should also be highlighted, Sunday’s guests have suffered just a single defeat from any of their last 10 showdowns against second-tier opposition – a run that stems all the way back to August 2nd. Two sides who are battling it out at opposite ends of the Serie B table, we are backing an away double chance here.
