Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: Athletico Paranaense win
Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on their recent success on the road, Athletico Paranaense will make the trip to a struggling Chapecoense late on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, putting in what was another nightmare display over the weekend, Chapecoense are freefalling their way towards an immediate second-tier return. In their 25 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded just a single win, nine draws and 15 defeats, scoring 22 and conceding 43 in return. Along with mustering just a points tally of 12 and opening the midweek fixtures sat rock-bottom of the table, it should also be noted that they hold the worst-defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 5-2 drumming away at Internacional, Wednesday’s hosts have managed to land just a single victory across all formats so far this season. Likewise, Chapecoense have also failed to record a single home victory so far.
As for the visitors, while Athletico Paranaense might still be struggling with their consistency, they have largely impressed with their success on the road. In their 24 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded 10 wins, three draws and 11 defeats, scoring 31 and conceding 31 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 33, they open the midweek fixtures sat eighth in the standings and four points adrift of breaking into the top-six. As for their recent run of results, winning six of their last eight matchups across all formats, Athletico Paranaense have also won three of their previous four fixtures on the road. Handed a golden opportunity once again on Wednesday night, we’re backing an away win for the Copa Libertadores hopefuls.
