Fortaleza vs Athletico Paranaense: Prediction, Preview and Betting Tips

Fortaleza vs Athletico Paranaense

Fortaleza vs Athletico Paranaense

Competition: Copa do Brasil

Date: 17 May 2019

Kick-off: 02:30 CET

Fortaleza had six wins in a row in their State championship and the Copa do Nordeste between March 28 and April 21, but once the really tough matches started, in the Série A, their weaknesses… surfaced. Two wins and three defeats in their last five games sort of makes sense, because their roster is not the deepest one, plus, they have to rotate every few days, trying to stay as competitive as possible. Rogério Ceni has to… work some magic, so as to split the game time between his players in the four games they will play the next 10 days(!). Against Athletico, Ceni cannot count on three players; central midfielder Juninho, plus, strikers Kieza and Wellington Paulista, are unavailable, all three for the same reason: they have already played in Copa do Brasil this season, for other teams, before moving to Fortaleza, so they are ineligible. It’s impressive that Fortaleza have played 25 official matches in 2019, and Ceni has used 25 different starting lineups(!). This time, they are expected to start with Marcelo Boeck, Tinga, Nathan, Juan Quintero, Bruno Melo, Felipe, Araruna, Romarinho, André Luís, Marcinho and Júnior Santos.

Tiago Nunes, Athletico Paranaense’s coach, knows that he cannot start the same players against Fortaleza, versus Corinthians the coming weekend, and also against River Plate next week, in CONMEBOL’s “Super Cup”, he knows he needs to… prioritize games, and the day before this one, in Fortaleza, the overall impression was that Athletico will play with their regulars, their best possible team, with Nunes planning on fielding several reserves against Corinthians, in a few days. According to reports, they will start with Santos, Jonathan, Paulo André, Léo Pereira, Renan Lodi, Wellington, Bruno Guimarães, Léo Cittadini (or Lucho González), Nikão, Rony and Marco Ruben.

Athletico are given a slight advantage to win the game. Personally, I would bet on goals, leaving winners and losers aside.
