Thanks to its good series in November, Parana is already on safe position (five points in front of the teams in the relegation zone).
It simply means, that the players won’t enter into this match with so big motivation, as everything that they expect is end of this difficult season.
America de Natal is on the edge of the relegation zone, level on points with the seventeenth team in the standings.
The guests just can’t afford to lose points in this game, simply because it could cost them the place in this league.
Like Parana, the guests showed good form in most of their games since the beginning of the month (3-1-1) and their motivation, together with the fact, that the hosts probably think more about the upcoming break, are the main reasons for my bet.
