Atletico Mineiro vs Bahia
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 20th July 2017
Kick off at 01:45 UK/ 02:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Raimundo Sampaio.
Atletico Mineiro managed a second-half comeback to pick up their first win in four matches on Sunday evening when they outplayed Atletico GO on the road.
Galo will have a nice chance to back up the fine display just three days later when they are about to tackle another newcomer Bahia in the Matchday No 15 of this Serie A term.
Fred finally managed to find the back of the net last weekend when he annulled Igor’s opener for Atletico GO to contribute to Galo’s important away win.
Can the former Brazilian national team striker back up the fine performance and bash another in mid-week when Mineiro host Bahia?
We believe the answer is yes and we are going to take Fred as an anytime goalscorer at the odds of 10/11.
Machado’s men will, however, need to be at their best if they want to clinch the home win over the league’s newcomers since in-form Bahia can truly represent a threat on Wednesday.
The visitors are undefeated in last four league outings having conceded no more than two goals during the process.
The weekend behind us has seen the team playing a 1-1 draw with Avai on the home court.
