The visitors of the upcoming match are in the Copa Sudamericana zone and take 11th place with 30 points. Atlético Goianiense is at the very bottom of the promotion zone and has a one-point advantage over its closest pursuer, Sao Paulo. In 24 rounds, the Dragons scored 20 goals and conceded 22 times. Their last ten matches ended in two victories, two defeats, and six draws. In recent rounds, Atletico Goianiense lost to Athletico Paranaense (0-2) and Sao Paulo (2-1), defeated Fortaleza (0-3) and Bahia (1-2), and tied against Corinthians (1-1), Cuiaba (0-0, and Fluminense (0-0). In the last five away matches, the Dragons chalked up two defeats, one draw, and two victories.
These opponents have gained roughly the same number of victories in previous head-to-head matches. But in the last two games, Bragantino won with a score of 2-0 and 0-1. Now the Red Bulls will have to play at their native stadium, which will give them an additional advantage. Beyond that, the hosts have a noticeably more active attack, which will cause trouble for the visitors. We think that Bragantino will at least not lose in this rather tense match.
Prediction for the match: Bragantino to win with +0.5 handicap and Under 2.5 goals scored
