Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport
In a battle between two sides who find themselves leading the chase at the top of the table, Athletico Paranaense will host RB Bragantino on Saturday night.
Starting with the hosts, putting in what was a sluggish display earlier in the week and eventually hit with a 2-1 defeat away at Santos, there is no doubt that Athletico Paranaense will be glad to make a return to home soil on Saturday night. Missing out on the chance to make up some ground at the top of the table and still chasing a three-point buffer, Furacão have continued to catch the eye with their performances at the Arena da Baixada this season. Last seen on home soil grabbing a deserved 2-1 victory against Fortaleza on July 3rd, Head Coach António Oliveira is yet to see his side suffer a Serie A loss in Curitiba since opening the 2021 campaign. Mustering 10 points from their four top-flight home matchups this year, it should also be noted that each of Paranaense’s last seven Serie A contests have finished with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, also missing out on a chance earlier in the week and having to settle for a 1-1 draw against Cuiabá on home soil, Bragantino will be desperate to lay down another marker on Saturday. Continuing to impress many across Brazil since opening the 2021 campaign and with just their goal difference keeping them off of top spot, Maurício Barbieri’s side are also the only team who are yet to taste top-flight defeat so far this year. A huge part of Bragantino’s remarkable start to the campaign has come thanks to their stellar form away from the Estádio Nabi Abi Chedid. Last seen on the road picking up a 2-1 win against São Paulo, the former Flamengo boss has watched his side win each of their five Serie A away fixtures. In a matchup that could see a string of chances at both ends of the pitch this weekend, we’re backing both teams to find the net here.
Bet: Both teams to score at Athletico Paranaense vs RB Bragantino 10/11 for Saturday’s Brazil Serie A showdown @ 888sport
