Atletico MG vs America MG
Copa Libertadores
Date: 14 April 2022, Thursday
Kick-off at 01:00 UK / 02:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto (Belo Horizonte).

A real buzz is expected in and around Estadio Mineirao on Wednesday evening when Atletico MG take on America MG in a big city derby in the second round of Group D in Copa Libertadores.

Atletico MG will be looking to continue their extraordinary form at the beginning of the season. The team led by Antonio Muhamed (took charge two months ago) look unstoppable right now.

Atletico MG won the Campeonato Mineiro 1 title by beating Cruzeiro 3-1 in the final earlier this month.

They also got off to a victorious start to the title-defense quest in Serie A by beating International 2-0 at home on Sunday afternoon. Hulk stole the show with a brace on the occasion.

Finally, Atletico MG picked up a 0-2 victory away at Colombian side Deportes Tolima last week on the opening day of their Copa Libertadores campaign.

Their city rivals will come into this match in a completely opposite mood. They had a disappointing campaign in the Campeonato Mineiro 1 and they suffered defeats in the opening rounds of both Copa Libertadores group phase and Serie A.

The team led by Marquinhos Santos failed to find the back of the net in either of the last two losses, both of which came within the previous seven days.

They could struggle to deliver up front here against Atletico MG who have allowed just one shot on target in the weekend’s 2-0 home win over Internacional.
