Fluminense vs Atletico PR – Serie A
Wednesday 7th May 00:00, Estadio Jornalista Mário Filho
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Fluminense could move top of the table in Brazil with a victory over a struggling Atletico PR tomorrow, but even then the hosts would be relying on other results going in their favour.
The hosts sit 1 point and four places below Chapecoense who top Serie A less than a year after that tragic plane crash which cost the lives of the majority of their players.
Atletico PR are still searching for their first win of the season with four games already gone, and only due to them picking up a draw from those games has kept them from propping up the table completely.
Henrique Dourado has started the season in fine goal scoring form for Fluminense, notching 6 goals in just 4 appearances, though four of the six have arrived via penalties.
With the home crowd behind them I just can’t see Fluminense failing to take all 3 points tomorrow, and I’m backing them to keep a clean sheet and for under 2.5 goals to be scored in the 90 minutes.

Fluminense vs Atletico PR Stats
Tomorrow marks the 34th meeting between Fluminense and Atletico PR, and so far the head to head record tells us that tomorrows hosts have enjoyed this fixture a little bit more than the visitors.
When the two teams last locked horns back in November of last year, Fluminense were once again playing the role of hosts.
A strike from Cícero just shy of the half hour mark made sure Fluminense went in 1-0 up at the break, but a penalty from Hernani in the 62nd minute earned Atletico PR a valuable point.
Something needs to change in the form of the visitors or they risk being involved in a relegation battle, and the way things have gone so far suggests they might not have what it takes to remain in Serie A for much longer.
