Atletico MG – Can Atletico MG remain in top four?

Atletico Mineiro occupy 3rd place in the Brazilian top flight and will no doubt be keen to hang onto their current top four position as the hosts look to push their claims for an automatic spot in the Libertadores next season.

Recent results have produced a mixed return though for Atletico MG as they’ve registered wins against Flamengo 2-1 and a resounding 4-0 win over CSA, both at home, but have also fallen foul to defeats against Palmeiras, Gremio and Santos – the latter 2 of these 3 losses coming away from home though.

Switch to results at their Estádio Raimundo Sampaio though and you’ll find the hosts have won 3 of their first 4 matches in their own backyard with a good early home record under their belts of 3-0-1 8/4 which includes wins over Avai, Flamengo and CSA.

Atletico MG have been pretty reliable on home ground for some time now as the hosts have suffered just 3 defeats out of their last 19 matches and have made themselves a hard unit to beat on home soil.

Sao Paulo Prediction – Can Sao Paulo break a 4-game drought?

As the sub-heading indicates, Sao Paulo make their way to face Atletico MG without a win for four matches in the Brazilian top flight as they’ve been held to draws with Bahia, Cruzeiro and Avai along with a 1-0 defeat away at Corinthians, and they’ve managed just 1 win out of their last 6 matches overall.

The optimist will point out though that the visitors have lost just 1 of their last 8 matches overall, and this improved run of results should stand them in good stead to get something from their trip to Atletico Mineiro on Thursday night.

However, with just 3 away wins from their last 13 matches on their travels, Sao Paulo’s recent improved run of results takes on a new light, and having lost their last two away visits at tonight’s hosts, Atletico MG, both by 1-0 margins, the visitors are by no means guaranteed of getting something from this clash.

A note of caution too – 5 of Sao Paulo’s last 13 away matches have resulted in a stalemate so it’s definitely worth keeping the draw onside as far as possible when making your mind up on how to bet on this game.


Key-Facts – Atletico MG v Sao Paulo

  • Atletico MG have won 3 of their first 4 home matches of this season’s Serie A
  • Atletico MG have lost just 3 of their last 19 matches at home in the top flight
  • Sao Paulo have won just 3 of their last 13 away matches in Serie A


Betting Tips Verdict

Atletico MG are a hard team to beat in their own backyard and should just edge this encounter, perhaps by another 1-0 margin.
