In week 5 of the Copa Libertadores, Atletico PR will Host Flamengo at the Arena de Baixada this Wednesday, April 26, 2017 (5:45 PM Pacific). Both teams need points from this game to stay relevant in the tight Group D of the tournament.
Atletico PR is fighting in this Contested Group D, currently in third place with four points, just two points back of Flamengo in first place. The Brazilian side tied against Universidad Catolica and defeated San Lorenzo away from home to achieve its four points in the tournament. The win could be monumental for Paranaense as it could propel the team to first place in Group D.
Flamengo is currently topping Group D of the Copa Libertadores with six points, with two wins and one loss. The Brazilian side defeated San Lorenzo and Atletico PR to get to those six points, while its only loss came against Universidad Catolica. The first time these two Brazilian sides did meet in the Copa Libertadores, Flamengo won by a score of 2-1 at home. This could turn out to be a similar game with Flamengo having the stronger squad but could also play out differently with Paranaense having the home-field advantage. At this stage of the competition it seems like every game is a must win and this will be a vital game for both teams.
