The hosts are unbeaten in five games across competitions, but they drew three of these, and only a victory would do them well here. Grabbing one will be quite a massive task against the in-form opposition which is also undefeated in last five games in all competition, a streak that started just against the Mineiro side almost a month ago.

Both teams are generally doing well in their domestic campaigns. Galo sit sixth after four games in Serie A, while Santo are third in the Argentine Superliga with 26 rounds behind them. They are just six points shy of Boca Juniors at the very top of the league standing and the continuation of the fine form could get Claudio Biaggio and his side into the contest for the silverware until the end of the season.

Atletico Mineiro vs San Lorenzo: Head-to-head

The match played in mid-April at Estadio Pedro Bidegain was the first ever head to head encounter between these two likes.

As mentioned above, San Lorenzo took a narrow 1-0 win thanks to Gabriel Gudino whose goal which came six minutes before the break proved out to be the difference maker.

Atletico Mineiro vs San Lorenzo: Prediction

Biaggio has reasons to be thrilled with his team’s defensive displays of late as Santo did not concede a single goal in last three league ties. On the other hand, Atletico Mineiro are also very tough to break down in front of the home crowd where they won eight and drew one of last nine matches across competitions. Galo shipped just one goal in last four home matches.

We thus expect a very close encounter which could be also decided by a single goal, meaning the best of the betting options would be chasing the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 1.66. You can also try with the correct score bet, backing Atletico Mineiro to win 1-0 and take the match into extra-time at 6.00.
