Atletico GO vs Atletico Mineiro
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 16th July 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico Teixeira.
Atletico Mineiro will finally have an easier fixture after facing a super tough schedule over the last couple of weeks.
Team’s owners will not tolerate any more mistakes from Roger Machado and his men who are far away from the top of the standings after 13 rounds of the competition.
The victory over the league’s newcomers and probably the weakest team in this term of Serie A is thus an imperative for Galo.
However, the hosts will come into the game with calculations of their own hoping to take advantage of Galo’s slower form in the recent period.
Dragao managed to clinch their first point in sixth away game since the start of the season, but staying safe will require much more from the team from Goianense.
The hosts sit at the very foot of the standings being four points away from the penultimate-placed Avai after losing four of their last six matches.
The visitors had a decent campaign in group stages of Copa Libertadores, but they just can’t seem to bring it to the domestic competition.
Machado has a deadly lineup of strikers led by former national team forwards Robinho and Fred, but the team scored no more than a single goal in last three matches in all competitions.
Atletico GO vs Atletico Mineiro: Head to head
Atletico GO managed to beat Mineiro squad only once in six matches as three of their head to head encounters ended without a winner.
As many as five of six H2H games between the two sides saw both teams on target which is kind of the scenario we expect to witness this Sunday at Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico Teixeira.
Atletico GO vs Atletico Mineiro: Prediction
The quality is on Galo’s side without doubts and we just can’t ignore the sky-high 11/8 odds offered by the bookmaker son the visitors to snatch the much-needed victory.
Dragao allowed two goals to both Vitoria and Sao Paulo in last two fixtures and we would not be surprised to see them continuing the negative defensive run.
