Atletico PR vs Flamengo Prediction and Betting Tips

Atletico PR vs Flamengo – Brazilian Serie A :This Sunday afternoon, Atlético Paranaense hosts Flamengo
At the Arena da Baixada, on the 19th round of the Brazilian Serie A.
This is a duel between teams with different campaigns. While Flamengo is fighting for the title, Atlético PR is currently fighting to escape the relegation zone and to try and get the victory,
the hosts count with a very favourable record against Flamengo, because they have never lost at home against this opponent.
In fact, Atlético Paranaense’s campaign on this Brazilian Serie A is well below what would be expected from a club that historically always stood out due to their organization inside and outside the pitch.
Right now, they occupy the 19th place with only 15 points conquered, 17 goals scored, and 19 goals conceded in 17 matches played.
Some rounds ago, the team was presenting a very little convincing football, usually having the ball possession but not creating a lot on the offensive sector, and besides that, they had a somewhat disorganized defence.
However, since the arrival of the new manager, the team has been showing a good tactical improvement and also technically.
Flamengo has been presenting a good football for quite some time, counting with a roster that’s very good technically,
but we also need to highlight the work of their manager Maurício Barbieri that managed to combine the talent of his players with good tactical organization.
In the league, the visitors are one of the contenders to winning the league title, because they have been showing solid football and therefore they sit in 2nd place with 37 points conquered, thanks to a record of 29 goals scored and 12 goals conceded.
For the match against Atlético-PR, Barbieri should put his best players on the pitch, because he is aware of the difficulties he will face at the Arena da Baixada.
Atletico PR vs Flamengo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Here I expect a very close match, even if these are teams with different campaigns in this competition. Flamengo definitely has a more qualified team technically than Paranaense,
but I also see Atlético having good players that, playing collectively, might make things very hard for their rivals, even more because of the good performances they’ve been having on their latest matches.
Then, because of that evolution and because they have never lost to Flamengo at the Arena da Baixada, I think that Atlético will maintain that invincibility,
and besides that, they come into this match more prepared physically than their opponents, that had a fatiguing encounter last Wednesday for the Copa do Brasil.
