Athletico Paranaense vs Bragantino Tips and Prediction
When Athletico Paranaense came from behind to defeat Bahia 2-1 away from home in the first leg of their Copa do Brasil last-16 match on Wednesday, they extended their unbeaten streak across all competitions to ten games.
Lucas Mugni gave the hosts the lead in the first minute, but Christian equalized for the Furucao six minutes later, and just after the half-hour mark, Pedro Rocha gave the visitors the lead, which ended up being the game-winning goal.
While Luiz Felipe Scolari’s team has five games to prepare for before facing Bahia in the second leg of the Copa do Brasil semifinal next month, Paranaense will have one eye on reaching their second straight Copa do Brasil final.
The team’s next match is at home against Bragantino, where they have won all five of their previous encounters, including a narrow 1-0 victory in the Copa Sudamericana final in November of last year. They will be confident of victory on Saturday.
With a win this weekend, Paranaense will move to within four points of league-leading Palmeiras, who play Avai on Sunday. Paranaense is currently third in the Brasileiro Serie A standings.
Bragantino have pieced together a four-game unbeaten streak, which includes a 2-2 draw away at Santos last weekend, after suffering through a terrible stretch of play between April 23 and June 5 in which they won just once in 12 games across all competitions.
Leo Baptistao scored twice in the first 36 minutes of the game to give Santos a two-goal lead. However, the visitors rallied to earn a point with goals from Hyoran in first-half stoppage time and Luan Candido in the 71st.
The club led by Mauricio Barbieri is one of five teams with 18 points after the first 13 games of the season and is presently ranked 10th in the Brasileiro Serie A standings.
In sixth place and just three points behind Saturday’s opponents Athletico Paranaense, the Massa Bruta are tied with Fluminense in points.
The last time Bragantino defeated Paranaense, by a score of 2-1 at home in September 2012, was a battle for them in previous years.
Athletico Paranaense are on a good run of success of their own and will be thought of as the favorites for the match on Saturday even though Bragantino are starting to turn their fortunes around.
At the Arena da Baixada, goals are expected, but we see the home team earning all three points to keep pace with the top two.
