Athletico Paranaense and Atlético Mineiro square off at the Arena da Baixada in the second leg of the Copa do Brasil final on Thursday.

The visitors have one hand on the trophy after claiming an emphatic 4-0 win in the reverse leg, while the hosts have an uphill task of overturning that deficit.

Athletico Paranaense suffered a huge blow to their Copa do Brasil title hopes as they fell to a humbling 4-0 defeat at the hands of Atlético Mineiro in the first leg last Sunday.

The result was in keeping with their recent struggles as they have now failed to win any of their last three games and have won just one of their most recent six.

Meanwhile, the first leg was a ninth win in 10 outings across all competitions for Atletico Mineiro.

Their only defeat came two days earlier as they were beaten 3-2 by Gremio in their Brasileiro Serie A season finale.

Atletico Mineiro will now look to close out the season on a winning note and clinch their second Copa do Brasil title.
