View all Atletico PR v Internacional tips, stats and our pre-match poll below - plus the latest match odds.
Atletico PR will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 1-0 Serie A loss in their previous game against Ceará.
In that game, Atletico PR had 47% possession and 9 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. Ceará had 21 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. Wendson (98') was the scorer for Ceará.
At least three goals per game were recorded in 5 of the last 6 fixtures where Atletico PR have taken part. Their opponents scored 9 of them in these games while Furação amassed a tally of 11.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Atletico PR:
- have not won against Internacional in their last 3 league games.
- are undefeated in their previous 4 league matches at home.
Last time out, Internacional drew 0-0 in the Copa Libertadores tie with Olimpia.
It has become apparent that Internacional have failed to get amongst the goals over their previous six clashes, netting the disappointing return of only 2. In those fixtures, Colorado have also seen the overall goal tally of opposing teams equal 3. Putting that to one side, time will tell whether that pattern shall be maintained in this match or not.
Their previous form shows that Internacional:
- have left without a victory over Atletico PR when having played them away from home in the previous 5 league games. Not the best of away records.
- are unbeaten in their last 5 away league matches.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 3 matches in the league.

Team News: Atletico PR
Atletico PR manager António Oliveira doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this clash thanks to a fully injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Internacional
Inter de PA manager Diego Aguirre has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Paolo Guerrero (Knee Injury) and Rodrigo Moledo (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be playing here.
Our thinking is that Internacional will have their work cut out to be putting a goal past this Atletico PR team who we think will score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a 1-0 victory for Atletico PR at the end of this one.
It should be a good one.
