Atletico Mineiro vs Atletico GO
Date: 9th November 2017
Kick off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Raimundo Sampaio (Belo Horizonte).
Atletico GO have been struggling badly in the top tier and they’ll likely see an instant drop to the second class at the end of the season.
Dragao sit at the very foot of the Serie A standings with a nine-point deficit to Sport Recife in the safe zone and six games left to play.
The victory over Mineiro in Thursday’s 33rdround clash in Belo Horizonte would give a glimmer of hope, but it is highly unlikable scenario given their poor run of form in the recent fixtures.
The hosts will thus have a nice opportunity to bounce back after a 3-1 defeat to Santos away at weekend.
Mineiro need three points to stay in the top 12 and keep chances for securing Copa Sudamericana appearance in the next season.
The visitors have huge issues with the efficiency in the final third. They’ve notched no more than a single goal in last four matches and they’ll head into this on the back of four losses and a draw in last five league outings.
The good news for Joao Paulo Sanches is Atletico’s away form as the team lost only a single of last six matches on the road.
Atletico Mineiro vs Atletico GO: Head to head
Galo lost only a single of seven H2H ties with the Goianense side, but two of three meetings between the two teams at Estadio Raimundo Sampaio ended with no winner.
Mineiro came on top in this term’s clash with Dragao in mid-July when Fred and Elias completed a comeback at Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico Teixeira.
Atletico Mineiro vs Atletico GO: Prediction
The poor Goainense’s form suggests the home win in this one, but the 1.44 odds will hardly make anyone rich.
The value might be found in backing Fred, who notched three goals in last five matches, to score anytime for the hosts at 1.95.
