It was a result that made Scolari happy because 2-2 should be counted as a good advantage in the first leg away at Atletico Paranaense. Last Sunday they drew with Portuguesa at the first league match of the season. They were the dominating side but a break in their concentration and a mistake in defense they conceded the equalizing goal in last minutes of the game. The criticisms against Scolari increased by those who do not want him as the coach. Thus the president declared that Scolari has 7 more months contract and the whole management supported him. This statement must refreshed the confidence of world famous coach. And it is sure this will reflect to the team players. Chilean striker Valdivia and veteran midfielder Marcos Assuncao were rested in the match due to this quarter final that they will host Atletico Paranaense.
Atletico Paranaense reinforced their squad and they are much stronger than last year. Even being Serie B they target the cup so they can qualify Libertadores. They struggled good in the first leg but the quality difference did not give them the chance to beat Palmeiras. They defeated Joinville last Saturday in the match which they lined up with their regular squad.
Atletico Paranaense with new transfer Hernan Barcos is much better team in creating attacks and hitting the nets. They know they will qualify to Libertadores if they win this trophy. Even it would not be very easy they have better squad and home advantage. They will win this match.
