Team News: Atletico PR
There is just one fitness concern for the Atletico PR boss António Oliveira to contend with due to a largely intact group of players. Matheus Babi (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) will miss out.
Team News: Juventude
Owing to a completely injury-free squad to pick from, the Juventude boss Marquinhos Santos doesn’t have any fitness worries at all ahead of this clash.
We’re inclined to think that Juventude will need to put in a solid display to register a score against this Atletico PR side who should do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a highly competitive game with a 1-0 advantage for Atletico PR when all is said and done.
A close call.
