Athletico Paranaense hosts Ceara in round 31 of Brazilian Serie A. The match will be played on Wednesday, November 10th at Arena da Baixada (Curitiba).
Athletico Paranaense has rarely climbed to high places in Brasileirao in recent seasons. But the club manages to compensate for this with quite good results in other tournaments. Nothing changes now. Athletico Paranaense players were able to prove themselves again in the playoffs of Copa Sudamericana and won a ticket to the final of this tournament. In a week and a half, the Red and Blacks will face Red Bull Bragantino. By the way, Athletico Paranaense won this Cup in 2018. It is not surprising that paying maximum attention to this competition, the club is not so far from the danger zone, so it will not be superfluous to step up at the end of the championship.
Ceara spent the lion's share of this century in Serie B. The first attempt to gain a foothold in the elite was not successful: after spending a couple of years in Brasileirao, Grandpa returned to the 2nd division. The new attempt is obviously more successful. After all, having returned to Serie A in 2018, the Black and Whites manage to constantly score enough points to avoid relegation. Yes, the places were not particularly high, and the 11th position in the last draw became the maximum result so far. But now there is a chance to surpass it. Yes, Ceara doesn't have a lot of victories. But the competitors are not more stable than the Black and Whites, so there is a real chance to finish in the top ten of the tournament standings. Of course, they need to win more often to do this. But in recent months, Ceara often had winless streaks.
Athletico Paranaense has not lost to this opponent in nine head-to-head matches in a row. But in the middle of summer, Ceara was finally able to gain victory over the Hurricane thanks to Lopez's goal in the 99th minute. Both Atletico Paranaense and Ceara are not at the peak of their shape at the moment. Therefore, it is unlikely that we will see many goals in the upcoming game.
