Mineiro are very tough to break down on the home patch where they shipped only a single goal in six games across competitions so far. The rock-solid defense is Thiago Larghi’s main weapon as teams has done well without being prolific recently. Galo notched just two goals in last four outings at Estadio Raimundo Sampaio.

This will be the music to the ears of Mauricio Barbieri’s men who kept their net untouched in three subsequent away matches before shipping three in a defeat to Chapecoense on the previous travel in Serie A.

Atletico Mineiro vs Flamengo: Head-to-head

  • A home victory would level the score in H2H stats at 15 wins apiece as teams head into their 39th meeting.
  • Interestingly, just one of last five H2H encounters brought three or more goals.
  • Atletico Mineiro are undefeated in last three clashes with Flamengo, winning one and drawing two in the process.

Atletico Mineiro vs Flamengo: Prediction

We expect a very tight game to be decided by a single goal. Galo’s main goal will be keeping things tight at the back, something they’ve done successfully in each of last four home games in all competitions. Knowing that four of last five head to head affairs also saw the Under 2.5 goals FT bet “come in”, we have to take the 1.66 odds offered for such scenario in the derby of the round.

As for the outcome, the slight advantage goes out to the host mainly because Mauricio Barbieri’s side will come into the game just three days after the tough away match against River Plate on the final day of the Copa Libertadores group phase.

Atletico Mineiro vs Flamengo: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.66
  • Atletico Mineiro to win -0 @ 6.50.
