Atletico Mineiro aren’t impressing this season, having recorded only 13 points after 10 matches and 15-16 goal difference and currently occupy 12th position in the league standings. The visiting side won their last two matches in the league over Ponte Preta, 3-0 and Corinthians, 2-1 and these six points improved the team’s positions in the league greatly. Atletico show quite mediocre results on the road, failing to win any of their four away games with three draws and one defeat and 6-8 goal difference. On top of that, the team is on nine-match streak without a single win of the road that started back in the beginning of April.
America Mineiro aren’t that honorable team and don’t have any advantage in the head-to-heads with the neighbors but the hosts of the match managed to avoid defeats in their last six matches against today’s opponents, winning two and drawing four. Derby between the opponents are always quite intense and both sides score at least one in each of their last nine meetings. We should expect this series to be extended for this match as well.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals.
