Atletico MG vs Corinthians Prediction
Atletico MG has had a head start to the league and will play on the back of an away win. It will probably boost the morale of the players, and Jorge Sampaoli will be glad to march his troops home, where they will have the ground advantage with a four-game winning streak at home in their schedule.
Corinthians will be at a backhand despite being in a better position than the host in the table last season because of their poor away form. They have had troubles when playing away from home in the h2h meetings with the Rooster, and the mistakes can repeat yet again.
The double chance favoring Atletico MG will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash. The tip for a BTTS will also come in handy, considering their h2h history, in the encounter to yield decent returns for the punters.
