Athletico PR vs Fluminense Match Preview
Fluminense have seen two narrow losses on the road late in May and they now travel to Parana for their Matchday 7 looking to finally end the disappointing streak on the road, where they dropped all three points in a 3-2 thriller at Bahia and made their way to Copa Sudamericana 8th Finals over Atletico Nacional despite a 1-0 loss (4-2 on aggregate) on Thursday.
Flu have thus seen their three-match unbeaten streak interrupted yet again and bouncing will be crucial for their hopes early in the new campaign, as they collected just six points in six outings so far, sitting five behind the top 4.
Athletico PR have seen similar struggles for consistency, though, and the only win in their last four outings came against River Plate (1-0) in CONMEBOL Recopa. They travel to Argentina just days beforehand and coping with such a tough schedule could prove more of a task.
Furacao have been held off by Fortaleza (0-0) and beaten by both Corinthians (0-2) and Flamengo (3-2) along the way, which makes us ponder if they have what it takes to build on quite convincing recent head-to-head records against Fluminense here. They have been tougher to beat at Estadio Joaquim Americo Guimaraes but we don’t’ really see them showing off.
We will thus stick our necks out for the visitors to end the three-match losing streak in clashes against Athletico PR and snatch at least a point on the day, where a Double Chance – Draw or Fluminense to win looks great value at 21/20 with bet365.
We do feel we should be in for an exciting contest tough to call, though, and we thus hope to see goals as we also back a Yes on Both teams to score at Evens with William Hill. We’ve seen goals on both ends in just one of the last four of the sides’ meetings but this should prove an unconventional contest in that sense.
