Athletico Paranaense take on the visitors Caracas in the round 6 match of Copa Libertadores group stage. The match will be played on Friday, May 27th at Arena da Baixada (Curitiba).
Atlético Paranaense not particularly impressive so far this season. “Hurricane” last season finished in a very mediocre, 14th place in Brasileirao. But at the same time, the team won the Copa Sudamericana, the second time in history. Among other things, the club from Curitiba thanks to this was able to get the right to play in the Cope Libertadores. However, not everything is successful there, and, perhaps, in the end it will be possible to roll back to a more familiar tournament. Starting with 4 points in the first 2 rounds, after that the Brazilians lost to both Libertad and Strongest, ruining things for themselves. But at the same time, Libertad managed to score 2 unanswered goals at home in the last round. And now even a draw will actually ensure passage to the playoffs.

Caracas is considered one of the strongest clubs in Venezuela. "Los Rojos del Avila" 19 times were the champion - this is the best result of the country. But the last time the “gold” went to this ambitious team in 2019. In the last draw, for example, there was only the 2nd place. And now they have completely lagged behind very seriously from the current leader of the Primera, Monagas. But it is clear that now the club is focused on the Copa Libertadores, yet there already reaching the group stage is seen as a good result. This time, it is Caracas who manages to demonstrate quite a worthy result, losing only once, 1-2 to Libertad in Asuncion. However, the Venezuelans won again, only against the Paraguayans, on their own field. As a result, they are the 4th in the quartet so far, but everything can be changed due to success in the last round.
In this draw, in the 1st round, the opponents recorded a draw. Before that, they crossed paths in the framework of the Copa Sudamericana-2018, when Atlético Paranaense won twice in the 1/8 finals. Athletico Paranaense is naturally seen as the clear favorite, but they don't really need anything. And Caracas can still hope for something. We bet on visitors with a "+2" handicap.
Prediction for the match: Caracas to win with +2.0 handicap.
