Junior - Atletico-PR Prediction, Picks and Tips
Second time in history that the title of the South American Cup is disputed by a Colombian club and another Brazilian as it happened in 2016. That time the final was not played because of the tragic accident suffered by the Chapecoense squad. Junior came to this final after leaving on the road to the Argentines Lanús, Colón and Defensa y Justicia, and recently to Santa Fe, who won both visiting (0-2) and at home (1-0). One of his keys in the Cup was his defensive solvency and strength playing in the heat of Barranquilla where he won the 4 matches played. Apart, he has attackers that have made the difference as the experienced Teo Gutiérrez, Jarlam Barrera or his goalscorer Luis Díaz. But the 'shark' campaign does not remain there because in Colombia it is a finalist of the Clausura (it will receive the SID this Sunday).
Atlético Paranaense will only focus on this international definition, the second in its history after the subtitle in the 2005 Libertadores. The 'furacao' is the revelation of the Cup: it left in the way to weight rivals like Newell's and Peñarol; then to Caracas, Bahia and finally to the historic Fluminense, winning 2-0 in both semifinal matches. His performance at home and abroad was very even. He also had an excellent closing in the Brasileirao, with only one defeat in the last 11 days and scratching the spot for the 2019 Libertadores, which he would win if he won this Cup.
Junior won his 4 venues for this Cup and without goals against (all with less than 2.5 goals). In 10 matches for this Cup, Paranaense only once received more than one goal.
