Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: Goias win
Odds: 21/10 @ Bet 365
With the chance to climb into the Copa Libertadores positions, Goias will host a struggling Athletico Paranaense in the early hours of Friday.
Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of an emphatic 3-1 win at home to Chapecoense last weekend, few would have expected Goias stellar return to Brazil’s top-tier. Now sat just two points adrift of climbing into the Copa Libertadores positions and winning three of their last four Serie A outings, a huge part of their eye-catching start to the year has come down to their continued showings at the Estádio de Hailé Pinheiro. Friday’s hosts have won their last three matches on home soil, including a very impressive 2-1 win over title dark horses Botafogo last month.
As for the visitors, while Athletico Paranaense may have marched towards a Copa Libertadores finish last season, Tiago Nunes’ men have now freefallen out the top-half of the table. Suffering a 1-0 loss away at Palmeiras last time out and now losing three of their last four Serie A appearances, a run that stems back to the start of May, a huge part of their recent struggles has come down to their form outside of Paraná. Paranaense have lost three of their last four matches on the road and are without an away victory since December.
