Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport
Two sides who find themselves firmly battling it out in the middle of the Serie A table, Atletico GO will host Athletico-PR late on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Atlético Goianiense might have gained a reputation for their consistency issues so far this year, there is no doubt that the Dragons will be boosted by a stellar display over the weekend. Making the trip to top-four leaders Fortaleza and putting in what was a stunning display on the road, Head Coach Eduardo Barroca saw his side land a hugely impressive 3-0 romp. Playing out what many around Goiânia are billing a season-best display last time out, that result on Saturday was Atletico GO’s first Serie A victory since the middle of August. Breaking their way back into the top-half of the standings, Wednesday’s hosts will now be desperate to improve on their issues at the Estádio Antônio Accioly. Remarkably, Barroca’s men have failed to win any of their last eight straight home fixtures, a run that stems back to June 23rd.
As for the visitors, while Atletico GO might have managed to lay down a real marker on the road last weekend, Athletico Paranaense couldn’t match their performance. Eventually blown away thanks to title hopefuls Flamengo and hit with a thumping 3-0 drumming on their travels, Head Coach António Oliveira will be desperate to prove that their display on Sunday was just a minor blip. Watching their eye-catching five-match winning run come to an abrupt end last time out, Furacão have also gained a reputation for their lively outcomes over the past three weeks. With Wednesday’s guests seeing each of their last five matchups across all formats produce 17 goals, we could have another action-packed affair in midweek. With 10 of the last 11 meetings between the midweek opponents finishing with over 1.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Atletico GO vs Athletico-PR 1/2 for Wednesday’s Brazil Serie A contest @ 888sport
