Tip Reasoning

Wednesday’s Brazilian Serie A action sees Atletico PR doing battle with Corinthians. The hosts will be looking for yet another home win as they seek to break into the Copa Libertadores spots.

Atletico PR come into this match with spirits extremely high after they got a huge monkey off their back over the weekend; namely their first away win of the Serie A season, via a 2-1 triumph at Vitoria. Said victory has boosted Furacão’s chances of breaking into the Libertadores spot massively and they now find themselves just 3 points shy of the top 6 with 3 games left to play.

That fact that Atletico’s next two league matches, starting here, are on home soil is also a big boost to hopes of securing Libertadores football, with Tiago Nunes’ men close to unstoppable at the Estádio Joaquim Américo Guimarães. Overall, Atletico have now won a staggering 11 home league matches in a row and that’s a streak they’ll be desperate to extend on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the Corinthians Arena breathed a collective sigh of relief on Saturday, as Corinthians saw off Vasco 1-0, all but ending any fears of relegation. 6 points above the drop zone in 12th, Timao can be relatively assured they won’t be suffering an embarrassing drop into Serie B and can play with slightly less pressure on them now.

Ultimately, 2018 has been a year of abject failure for the visitors and fans just can’t wait for it to come to an end. Having won the title with a 9 point lead over the chasing pack last season, it’s been quite the fall from grace for the side and they’ve looked a shadow of what they were under Fabio Carille last season, with his departure early on this season undoubtedly the main factor in their demise.

Ultimately, as we write almost every single time Atletico PR are at home; you have to fancy them to take all 3 points. Atletico are such a powerful force on their own patch and you’d back them against just about anyone and that’s certainly the case against a weak Corinthians outfit.

We think Atletico will be able to aid their Libertadores chase with a victory on Wednesday and what’s more, we really like the look of backing their win to be to nil. They’ve kept a clean sheet if 4 of their last 5 home games and with Corinthians having lost 7 of their last 10 away games, of which they’ve won none, it’s hard to see the hosts being too troubled and we envisage them running out 1-0 winners.
