Atletico MG vs Bahia Predictions & Match Preview

Atletico MG vs Bahia
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 24 August 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Raimundo Sampaio (Belo Horizonte).

The Libertadores spot of Atletico is under assault as of now. They are in possession of the fourth and final opening and taking into account the match in hand for Sao Paulo, who shares the same 27 points with MG, along with the challenger’s four-game winning streak, it’s high time that Atletico does something drastic.

The arrival of Bahia, as such, is music to the ears of home fans, as the guests are winless so far on the road. They were also unbeaten in four of their last five overall league fixtures and failed to score in two of their previous five Serie A games as well.
