Athletico Paranaense to Win

While both teams are doing well after the first eight rounds, Athletico Paranaense is still in better form. They are also the better team and they are playing at home, so they should be able to win this game. After all, the previous four head-to-head duels between these two teams have ended with Athletico Paranaense winning.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Just two of the previous five h2h meetings between Athletico Paranaense and Fortaleza have gone over 2.5 total goals, but we expect a different kind of match this weekend. Atheltico Paranaense has averaged 2.86 goals per match this season, while Fortaleza has an average of 2.5 goals per game in Serie A. So, they should combine for at least three goals in our opinion.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since we expect to see at least three goals here, we also expect both teams to score. After all, both teams have scored in 57% of Athletico Paranaense matches this season, while the same is true for 62% of Fortaleza games. That being said, both teams have scored in just two of their last five h2h duels.

Athletico Paranaense vs Fortaleza preview: The most interesting duel of the round

The two teams that had a great start to the season will meet in round eight of the Brazilian Serie A, so let’s take closer look at them:

Athletico Paranaense

It has been a great start to the season for Athletico Paranaense – the team is currently second only behind Bragantino, with two points and a game fewer than the leaders. In seven matches, Athletico has five wins, one draw, and one loss, which is truly a fantastic start for the team. The team’s bill of health is also a reason for optimism since only Halter is currently injured and unavailable for the next game in Serie A.

Fortaleza

The fourth place in which Fortaleza currently sits probably surprised many, but the team that struggled last season to stay in the league has been truly great so far in Serie A. In the last round, they ended their four-game streak without a win and now they have four wins, three draws, and one loss in the league. They are also almost completely healthy, with only Jussa listed on their injury report.
