Atletico Mineiro take on the visitors Flamengo in the round of 16 match of Copa do Brasil. The match will be played on Thursday, June 23rd at Mineirão (Belo Horizonte).
Atlético Mineiro will find it difficult to repeat last year's triumph. Last season they were able to win the championship title. Previous "gold" was won exactly half a century ago, already in 1971. Now Hulk and company, of course, would like to repeat that success. But so far, they have not been able to keep up with the leaders of the current draw. However, in the Copa Libertadores, the Brazilians managed to get into the playoffs. But, curiously, after the end of the fight there, the wards of Antonio Mohamed recorded a losing streak in Brasileirao. And only in the last match, exactly against Flamengo, it turned out to finally win, and confidently, 2-0.

Flamengo disappointed at the start of this season. "The Vultures" in 2019 and 2020 became national champions twice in a row, taking the Copa Libertadores at the same time. But last season there was only 2nd place, albeit in combination with another Copa final - but they lost it too. They clearly want to fix everything, and, as often happens now in Brazil, a bet was made on the Portuguese - Paulo Souza. But this specialist was a disappointment, to say the least And even good results in the Copa Libertadores didn’t save him his job: 16 points in the group. Already very depressing were the “achievements” in the championship, where at the beginning of the summer the statistics were at the level of outsiders. As a result, Dorival Junior was called to the Maracana. He started with a defeat, but then won 2-0 over Cuiaba.
In 2020-2021, Atlético Mineiro had 3 wins in a row. But in October, Flamengo managed to defeat an opponent in the championship. And in February, on penalties, the Vultures beat the Bettas for the Super Cup after 2-2 in full time. Hardly anything has changed. Maybe less confident, but Atlético should win again.
Prediction for the match: Atletico Mineiro to win.
