Atletico Mineiro vs Flamengo
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 13th August 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Raimundo Sampaio.
Atletico Mineiro will host Flamengo in one of the most interesting fixtures of the Matchday No 20 in the top flight of the Brazilian football this Sunday at Estadio Raimundo Sampaio.
Galo are having a dismal campaign in this term of Serie A as they sit at the disappointing 15th position after 19 rounds of the competition.
The owners, who had the highest ambitions before the start of the season, decided to make the change on the bench by hiring the former Brazil U20 and U23 head coach Rogerio Micale.
However, Micle did not bring the wanted refreshment in the final third as Mineiro failed to find the back of the net in each of their last three outings in all competitions.
This includes a goalless draw with Wilstermann which got Atletico eliminated from Copa Libertadores in the last 16 round of the competition.
It seemed that Mengao did manage to find the wanted shape as they climbed up the league’s ladder with a couple of decent performances.
However, the team revealed plenty of holes at the back which caused the three-games-without-a-win streak in Serie A.
Can the super impressive attacking display from the mid-week’s Copa Sudamericana meeting with Chilean Palestino (5-0) mark the breakthrough for Jayme de Almeida and his side?
Atletico Mineiro vs Flamengo: Head to head
Flamengo lead the head to head tie by two wins, but teams could not be separated in each of their previous two encounters.
This includes a 1-1 draw from the first game of the season at Maracana.
Atletico Mineiro vs Flamengo: Prediction
None of the two sides can be particularly happy with their defensive displays throughout the entire season which is why we can’t see any of the teams keeping the clean sheet this Sunday.
We would not be surprised to see the third consecutive draw in their head to head encounters.
