Player to watch: Julimar

Athletico forward, Julimar, has failed to capture the imagination of the club's fans since breaking into the first team as a teenager and had to spend last year on loan with Mirassol? Could the tide finally be turning, though?

A man in form

Julimar has never been prolific in front of goal but in recent weeks, he has come alive and shown flashes of what he is capable of. He has scored two goals in his last three appearances for the club so he will be a confident man coming into this one.
