Vitoria vs Atletico GO – Brazilian Serie A: The home team comes into this match on Sunday during their worst period ever since Vágner Mancini took over…
Not having a single win on their last 4 matches.
That is much due the drop in terms of performance of their defensive sector, who handed over the matches against Atlético/PR and against their biggest rivals, Bahia.
Another reason for this is also the fact that this team is very strong on the counter-attack, which also proved to be a negative aspect for them on the matches where they had to have the initiative.
For this match, the team should be able to count with Kanu again, a team’s starter that should give some stability to the defence with his return.
The offensive highlight of the team is their quick attack with Neilton, David and Trellez, that should cause the opposing defence some serious problems.
Besides that, the team returned to the relegation zone on the last round, so they should go after the result since the start of this match.
Atlético/GO is still on a tough situation: they have to cut a disadvantage of 8 points to the first team outside the relegation zone, because they lost the momentum they were having on the last few rounds.
For this match, the team won’t be able to count with André Castro, who should be replaced by Ronaldo.
Coming off 3 straight losses, the team seems to have given up on their fight to avoid relegation, showing some dismay at the end of matches.
For this match, this team is coming into it as complete underdogs, which means they shouldn’t sit back much on this encounter.
And this team has a weak counter-attack, especially since they have slow players up front like Walter and Jorginho.
Vitoria vs Atletico GO – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I see a much bigger motivation from the hosts here, who have a must-win encounter here, while Atlético will likely approach this as just one more match before the end of the season.
If the visitors sit back on this match, they can cause Vitória some troubles to score, but I don’t fancy that scenario.
I expect an open match, where Vitória’s superior technical quality should prevail.
