Cuiabá vs Athletico-PR
Stadium: Arena Pantanal
Cuiabá is in 12th place and needs to maintain it to participate in the Copa Sudamericana's next edition. With only one point more than Corinthians, but with the advantage in the tie-break if the two clubs finish on the same points, this goal is within reach for the Dourado. But it needs to beat Athletico, or Corinthians fail to win its game.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
António Oliveira's team has had a good season and hasn't been in too much trouble. Cuiabá has always been far from the relegation zone except for the early part of the season. At one point, it was one of the teams with the best away record, demonstrating that Cuiabá is now a small club that has earned its place in Brazilian football. It would be extraordinary to end the season with a win and consequent qualification for the Copa Sudamericana.
The Hurricane is in eighth place with the same 56 points as Fluminense, but the Cariocas are seventh due to having won more games. To steal the position from the Copa Libertadores winner, Athletico needs to do better. In other words, if Fluminense beats Grêmio, it would be guaranteed seventh place. In any case, the Paranaenses have already qualified for the Copa Sudamericana, so they'll be playing with peace of mind.
Expert Betting Tips
The Dourado will fight for victory against Athletico-PR in front of its home crowd, always listening to what's happening in the match between Coritiba and Corinthians. The Paranaenses have the motivation to finish in seventh place, so they won't make it easy for the Cuiabanos. I'm inclined to bet on a Double Chance in favor of the home team, with a maximum of three goals scored in the game.
