Athletico-PR will be looking for a fourth consecutive win in the Brazilian Serie A when they welcome Santos at the Arena de Baixada on Saturday at 10pm (UK time).
Athletico-PR were one one of the most out-of-form teams in the division a while ago, going 11 competitive fixtures without a win. However, they started to show signs of life and come into this clash on a three-game winning run in the league.
They managed to beat Fortaleza 2-1 in their last home game, and their form at the Arena de Baixada has been impressive despite their recent struggle, having kept five clean sheets in their last nine games across all competitions. In addition, Athletico-PR have won their last two home meetings with Santos, keeping a clean sheet in each of them.
Meanwhile, Santos have suffered just one defeat in their last five competitive games and are currently unbeaten in three league outings. Last weekend, Santos did well to beat Internacional 2-0, which put an end to a two-game winless streak. The bad news is that Santos are winless in three competitive away games at the moment, scoring just two goals. However, prior to this poor run, Santos were unbeaten in seven away games across all competitions. Santos currently sit sixth in the Serie A table with 34 points to their name after 21 rounds, just four points behind the current leaders Atletico Mineiro.
Can Athletico-PR win their fourth game in a row in the Serie A? Or will Santos close the gap at the top of the table with another victory here?
