Cuiabá x Athletico-PR – Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips 06/12/2023
Cuiabá and Athletico-PR face each other at Arena Pantanal, in the city of Cuiabá, Mato Grosso, for the 38th and final round of Series A of the Brazilian Championship. The clash will be played on the night of this Wednesday, December 6, 2023, starting at 9:30 pm Brasília.
The team from Cuiabá does not have any absence due to injury or suspension for this round and wants to end its campaign in the best possible way, trying to interrupt a sequence of three rounds without winning among the national elite.
Furthermore, Dourado curiously has a better record as a visitor, but wants to present a significant evolution of its collective game to make its fans proud at Arena Pantanal in this farewell match of the season after managing to commendably fulfill its main objective, which was to remain in the national elite.
Even though the team only scored one goal in the three previous games, Cuiabá managed to show the efficiency of its offensive sector in important moments for a calm campaign without major scares in relation to the relegation zone.
Furthermore, the club also assured its classification for the Copa Sudamericana in advance, giving greater peace of mind to enter the field this Wednesday without being so attached to the result.
In the last round, the team from Cuiabá showed a good level of performance to impose difficulties on Flamengo at Maracanã, but were unable to avoid a 2-1 defeat to the Rio de Janeiro team.
The negative result left them in the middle zone of the competition, occupying 12th place in the table, with 48 points achieved so far, having the opportunity to gain up to two positions in case of victory in this round.
In the last 5 games played officially, 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats were recorded, beating Bahia and Fortaleza, in addition to drawing with São Paulo and losing to Internacional and also to Flamengo.
Playing as home team, at Arena Pantanal, the Cuiabá team recorded a performance with 5 wins, 6 draws and 7 losses in the 18 matches played, totaling 20 goals scored and 22 conceded.
On the other side is Athletico-PR, who went seven consecutive rounds without winning, but ended their long streak by triumphing over Santos in an overwhelming way in the previous duel.
On that occasion, Furacão had the advantage of playing at the Ligga Arena, in front of their fans, and did well by beating Peixe 3-0 without taking notice of the opposing defense and, in doing so, regained some of the confidence they had lost with previous results.
However, the red-and-black clearly had extra motivation to defeat Santos, considering that it was his last match in front of the fans this season and now that they will enter the field away from home just to meet the schedule, the question remains as to what will be the stance of the Paraná team?
Only 1 victory, 4 draws and no defeats were recorded in the last 5 official matches of the season, beating Santos, in addition to drawing with Cruzeiro, Vasco, Bahia and also with Fortaleza.
Currently, the red-black team is in eighth place on the Brasileirão leaderboard, with 56 points achieved so far, six points away from the Libertadores zone, which can no longer be reached.
Playing away from home, the Athletico-PR team has a recent record of 4 wins, 6 draws and 8 losses in the 18 matches played in this condition for the Brasileirão, totaling 18 goals scored and 21 conceded.
Even though they are not an exemplary home team, Cuiabá still has a better campaign than Athletico away from home and the desire to say goodbye to their fans this season with a resounding victory should make Dourado get the better of Furacão, who only won one of the previous eight rounds and no longer has any apparent motivation.
Therefore, the recommended bet will be on Cuiabá’s victory, which is being undervalued in its prices, which are very attractive at the moment.
