They have the chance to move lock on points with the third-placed Atletico Mineiro with a win here as there is no further motivation required for Roger Machado and his men on the day.

Machado can generally be satisfied with the way in which his team plays, but the inability of turning chances into goals is what causes him headaches.

Last term’s runners-up were a far better side on the pitch in mid-week tie against Santos, but they could not hold on to the early lead allowing Peixe to get back on level terms with 15 minutes left on the clock.

Palmeiras vs Atletico Mineiro: Head-to-head

Atletico Mineiro have a positive record in H2H games against Verdao.

The visitors won 14, drew 8 and lost 11 of 33 head to head matches with Palmeiras.

Teams snatched seven wins apiece in 17 ties at Allianz Parque.

Each of last three head to head matches ended without a winner, all finishing with less than three goals scored.

Palmeiras vs Atletico Mineiro: Prediction

Unlike Palmeiras who offered a decent performance against Santos, Galo looked surprisingly lame on the court as they were soundly beaten by Gremio on Wednesday.

The team saw a host of changes in their squad during the summer and the head coach Thiago Larghi will certainly need some time to bed in the new arrivals.

Palmeiras come into this as favourites, but we do not see the value in backing them to win at the odds of 1.53.

After all, the draw was the most common of outcomes in the most recent head to head history against Atletico Mineiro.

Additionally, Verdao will come into this off the back of three consecutive draws in Serie A. We’ll shoot for the value and back the draw at the 3.80 odds here.
