Sunday brings us further action from the Brazilian top flight and our next preview features a clash between Atletico Mineiro and Fortaleza as the betting tips continue at the Estádio Raimundo Sampaio in Belo Horizonte.

Atletico Mineiro Prediction – Can Atletico MG hold onto 4th spot?

Sunday afternoon’s hosts, Atletico MG, will be aiming to capture a third win on the bounce when they entertain lowly Fortaleza.

The 4th placed home side previously recorded back-to-back wins against Chapecoense in Serie A and a 2-0 win over Cruzeiro in the Copa do Brasil.

These two wins will give the hosts confidence that they can grab all three points in this encounter as they look to consolidate their top four position in Serie A.

A home record of 3-1-1 9/5 at their Estádio Raimundo Sampaio in Belo Horizonte has also seen the hosts off to a good start this season.

This record includes wins over Avai, Flamengo and CSA, while their only defeat at home to date was to current league leaders, Palmeiras.

Indeed, Atletico MG have suffered just 2 defeats at home in their last 15 matches in the Brazilian top flight which is a solid record.

Atletico MG will therefore be hoping they can grab another three points here to remain in the top four of Serie A.

Fortaleza Prediction – Can Santos close gap at top of Serie A?

The 14th placed visitors look to be up against it here when they make their way to Belo Horizonte to take on Atletico MG despite recent wins.

Recent back-to-back wins against Cruzeiro and Avai respectively have helped ease their relegation woes as they now hold a useful 4-point buffer ahead of Fluminense.

However, it should be noted that both of these recent victories were achieved on home turf at their Estádio Governador Plácido Aderaldo Castelo in Ceara.

Just 3 wins from their last 8 matches overall in the Brazilian top flight means the visitors are by no means guaranteed of even a point against Atletico MG.

Results away from home though continue to dog Fortaleza as they’ve lost 6 of their last 8 matches on their travels in recent times.

Within this poor 8-match sequence away from home, Fortaleza have failed to score in 6 of these 8 matches which may work against them here too.

An away record of 1-0-4 3/9 doesn’t fill me with much confidence, while the bigger picture shows us that Fortaleza have won just 3 of their last 16 away matches in Serie A.


Key-Facts – Atletico MG v Fortaleza

  • Atletico MG have suffered just 2 defeats at home in their last 15 matches
  • Fortaleza have failed to score in 6 of their last 8 matches away from home
  • The last time these two teams met was 13 years ago


Betting Tips Verdict

Atletico MG should record a comfortable victory here to keep them on track for a top four finish.
