Vila Nova FC take on the visitors Atletico GO at “Estadio Serra Dourada” in the round 11 of the Brazilian Serie B. The game will be played in Goiania on Sunday, June 17th.
Vila Nova FC finished last season in the Serie B with six-point gap from the fourth place in the table which assured a pass to the elite division. And in this season “Tigrao" currently occupies the eighth position in the standings with 15 points gained after 10 encounters played, being three points ahead of its upcoming rival. After magnificent for-match winning streak which had also covered a confident 3:1 triumph over Goias in derby, the side didn’t taste a victory across six consecutive clashes. Vila Nova FC collected three draws and three defeats during that run, but what is much more disappointing that they have not managed to score in five out of six those battles. However, if the team succeeds in the upcoming fight, it will be able to appear among top-four clubs. As for the club’s statistics at its own turf, “Tigrao" picked up eight points with four goals for and two goals against in five tackles conducted in front of their supporters.

Having won the Serie B champion’s title in 2016, Atletico GO returned to the second division in a year, nevertheless, the side is eager to get back to the elite division again. At the moment the club is sitting on the 13th place in the Serie B table with 12 points taken. “Dragao” demonstrates furious performance in attack, being a true nightmare for its points with 18 scored goals, however, its defense is a huge disaster as it has conceded 20 goals so far. Atletico GO are the home side, having deserved most of the points in face of their fans, namely eight in six encounters conducted. Besides, “Dragao” always brings goal fasts at “Estadio Serra Dourada”, having scored 12 goals for and 13 goals against there. In the recent clashes the team has lost to Goias 1:3, deserved 2:2 draw against Juventude and failed 3:4 against Figueirense.
Vila Nova FC will be forced to surge forward for a triumph and I doubt that poor defense of Atletico GO will be able to cope with that pressure. However, “Dragao” will also stick to its usual attacking style and visitors’ magnificent offense will definitely use the hosts’ free zones in defense.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score.
