Athletico Paranaense and Sao Paulo to Draw

While Sao Paulo had a poor start to the season, they’ve stabilized a little bit lately, with the exception of a convincing loss to the defending champions Flamengo a couple of weeks ago. Meanwhile, Athletico Paranaense has been doing well in the league from the very beginning and they are rightfully favourites in this game. Still, Sao Paulo is a good team and they’ve been a bit better than Athletico in their recent head-to-head matches, so our prediction for this game is a draw.

Athletico Paranaense and Sao Paulo to Draw at Half Time

Most matches that end in a draw are also even at the half time, so we expect to see the same thing in this duel. Furthermore, three of the previous five meetings between Athletico Paranaense and Sao Paulo have been equal at half times and this game should be as close as all of their most recent duels.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The last five h2h duels between Athletico Paranaense and Sao Paulo have gone under 2.5 total goals, so there’s no reason to expect a different outcome in their upcoming match. In addition to this, Sao Paulo averaged just 1.86 goals per game in Serie A so far. Athletico is doing better in this regard with 2.77 goals per game, but that’s not enough to put this game over 2.5 total goals.

Athletico Paranaense vs Sao Paulo preview: A very close matchup

The home team is having a much better season in the league, but the guests have shown some signs of improvement lately, so this should be an exciting match. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams now:

Athletico Paranaense

The season so far has been pretty great for Athletico Paranaense – they’ve reached the quarter-finals of Copa do Brasil and Copa Sudamericana and they are also doing well in the Brazilian league. At the moment, Athletico Paranaense is sitting in the fifth place in the standings with 23 points from 13 games. However, Athletico only has one win in the last five league matches, along with one draw and three losses. Abner and Halter are injured and will miss the upcoming match.

Sao Paulo

It took a long time for Sao Paulo to notch their first win in Serie A, but right after that win came another. Still, Sao Paulo lost the next two games and draw in the previous round, but they’ve had a difficult schedule in those games. Overall, the team is still sitting in the relegation zone, which is even more baffling when we look at their results in Copa do Brasil and Copa Libertadores since Sao Paulo secured a spot in the quarter-finals of both competitions. Arboleda, Eder, and Luciano are on the injury list at the moment.
