Londrina vs Atletico for the Brazilian Serie B championship match on Friday at Café Stadium.
It was at the Café stadium that Londrina obtained on Wednesday, July 30, one of the most significant results of the season. In the classic with Paraná, won by 3 to 0. The first positive aspect of the win, naturally, was the conquest of the three points.
The team ascended to third place in the Brasileirão Serie B leaderboard. Reaching 23 points (seven wins, two draws and four defeats), further reducing their disadvantage against leaders Bragantino, who drew 2-2 at home against Cuiabá Esporte, to four points.
However, success in the classic still has the effect of gaining morale, especially for such a vast goal difference against a club that had one of the least leaked defences of the second division of the Brasileirão so far, and having the second-best performance in the visitor condition.
Londrina, as the home team, won 15 (five wins and one defeat) of the 18 points that disputed. They are the third-best hosts of Serie B having scored ten goals in their domains and conceded four.
The Dragon also has no reason to complain about its result in the thirteenth round, which faced another team of Paraná, the Operário, Ponta Grossa. Acting in Goiânia, they got a scare leaving behind 2-0 at the end of the first half.
However, they did a devastating second half. They got the turnaround and left the field celebrating the 4-2 victory, which took them to second place in the Serie B Brasileirão with 24 points (seven wins, three draws and three losses).
Visitor performance, however, is somewhat lower. In this regard, the team presents the fifth-best campaign of the Second Division of the Brazilian Championship. Of the 18 points, they played in column two, took ten home (three wins, one draw and two losses), scoring five goals and conceding the same number.
The recent trajectory, however, is one of ascension. In the last three matches away from home, the red-black has reaped two wins and a draw.
Goalkeeper Mauricio Kozlinski, who did not participate in the clash with Operário-PR due to suspension of accumulation of yellow cards, is now available to coach Wagner Lopes and should be returned to his place.
Both teams have been performing quite consistently throughout the competition with few swings. The home factor makes the prediction of Londrina‘s success against Atlético-GO the best guess for Friday’s match for the fourteenth round of Serie B of the 2019 season.
