Kick-off at 23:00 UK / 0:00 CET
Gameweek 10 of Brazil Serie A is set for this Saturday as Atletico MG host Santos who are 4 points and 5 places below them. These two sides will lock horns at Mineirão.
Atletico MG had a decent start to this season. They are at the 3rd spot on the standing with 16 points from 9 games. They won and drew 4 games each while having lost on one other occasion. The hosts are just two points away from getting into the top spot to overtake the Corinthians.
The hosts go into this game coming off the back of a goal-less drawn game over Palmeiras. They have been stingy, with the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their previous 6 outings stands just four. This fixture will be seen after their clash with Fluminense.
On the other hand, Santos reside at the 9th position on the table with 12 points. Of the 9 matches played, they won, drew and lost 3 matches each. Currently on a 3-game unbeaten run, the hosts have seen netting frequently but they tend to concede more of the same which hints that some defensive adjustments is needed.
Santos prepare for this match following on from a 2-2 S drawn game over Atletico PR. Their goals record stands at just 4 against opposition teams over the course of their last 6 fixtures. This game will be seen afterwards their battle with Internacional in the league.
