Atletico MG vs Sao Paulo
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Friday, 4 September 2020
Kick-off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Raimundo Sampaio.
The Faith Team had finished in the top-most tier the last season, and had qualified for the Libertadores. Meanwhile, their counterparts had to make do with a 13th place finish, and thus could secure just a ticket to the Sudamericana.
Likely, Fernando Diniz’s men are considered to be the better side between the two.
However, they have been struggling on the road for quite some time, while their opposite number have been tearing it up at home.
On top of that, the Roosters also do have an impressive h2h record over this opponent in the past several years.
As such, expect Atletico MG to emerge victorious this Friday.
Atletico MG vs Sao Paulo: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 2-0 win for the Faith Team.
- But their counterparts had recorded five of the preceding seven overall wins.
- At this venue, the hosts had recorded eight of the former nine wins.
- Since 2011, only once have the guests won at this stadium.
Atletico MG vs Sao Paulo: Prediction
The Roosters had recorded wins in eight of their former ten overall fixtures, and they were also unbeaten in 14 of their preceding 16 clashes. Also, one of these sole two losses had come against Internacional – the toppers of the league.
Moreover, they are also on a seven-match winning run at home, and have lost just once at this stadium in the past nine-month period.
On the other hand, Diniz’s men had lost four of their former seven road trips, and their total of four wins away from home this year had come against teams from the lower divisions.
Going on, they have also performed terribly in h2h clashes at this venue over the years.
Taking into account all these stats, expect a winning performance from Atletico MG this weekend.
