Team News: Atlético Goianiense
Atlético Goianiense boss Marcelo Cabo will be grateful not to have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash with a fully injury-free group available to select from.
Team News: Coritiba
Due to a completely injury-free group to pick from, Coritiba boss Rodrigo Santana has no fitness worries to report before this game. Nathan Silva will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We feel that in this game, Atlético Goianiense have it within them to see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
Conversely, Coritiba will be up against it finding the net themselves although we do think that they will probably end up hitting back at some stage here.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a pretty comfortable 3-1 win for Atlético Goianiense at the conclusion of the game.
