Atlético Goianiense is a club that was already the champion of the Brazilian Serie B Championship, in a very recent season, in 2016. With that, it achieved access to the elite of Brazilian football. But in 2017 he could not stand between the Serie A teams and was downgraded again. So, in this season of 2018 he is once again among the teams of the Serie B. In the Brazilian Championship of the Serie B of 2018, the team began oscillating between victories, draws and defeats, but managing to score regularly. However, in the last five rounds lost strength and is alternating between defeats and draws, reaching only three of the fifteen points played. An important observation is that the defensive sector of the team has consistently failed and will now face a team that usually makes goals in the first half when playing at home.
