After all, Sao Paulo averaged 2.74 goals per game in Serie A this season, which is the third-highest average in the league. Meanwhile, Athletico Paranaense averaged 2.32 goals per game in the league until now.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in only two of the previous five head-to-head duels between Athletico Paranaense and Sao Paulo. However, we expect to see at least three goals in this match, so we can see both teams scoring as well.

After all, both teams scored in a whopping 74% of all Sao Paulo matches in Serie A this season, while the same is true for 42% of all Athletico Paranaense games in the league so far.

Athletico Paranaense vs Sao Paulo preview: An exciting and close duel

Athletico Paranaense

With three wins, one draw, and two losses in the last six games in the league, Athletico Paranaense was able to stay in pursuit of the top since they are currently sixth in the standings and eight points behind Palmeiras in the first place. The team is also playing in quarter-finals of Copa Liberatores and Copa do Brasil, so this can be very successful season for them. Meanwhile, Christian and Julimar are out with injuries.

Sao Paulo

Although Sao Paulo is undefeated in the last six games in Serie A, only one of those six matches was a win for the team. Hence, Sao Paulo remains right in the middle of the standings and relatively far from the top teams. However, Sao Paulo is also in Copa do Brasil quarter-finals and they also reached the same stage in Copa Sudamericana, so things are overall pretty good for them. That being said, Sao Paulo also has seven players on their injury list at the moment.
