Atletico have been one of the most consistent teams in the Brazilian top flight and they are placed 3rd in the table as of now. They are also one of the very few teams to have remained unbeaten in the past 5 fixtures in the competition.

They have also secured the most number of points from home fixtures so far this campaign and only once have they lost here as well.

Meanwhile Sao Paulo are going through a rather inconsistent stretch of results as of now, and are placed below the top-6 of the table. They are also letting in goals in plenty and they have been unable to showcase any kind of consistency in their road fixtures lately.

Judging these observations, as well as the head-to-head superiority of Atletico MG, expect a win for them this Sunday at their home.
