Football – Brazil – Serie A Betting Tips

Brazilian Serie A action is also happening on Wednesday night with hosts Internacional taking on Atletico Mineiro at the Estádio José Pinheiro Borda with further betting tips for our readers.

Internacional occupy third place on the Serie A league ladder and trail the league leaders, Palmeiras by six points as they blew their chance to reduce the deficit last time out away at Botafogo – Internacional were handed a 1-0 defeat and now their chances of capturing the Serie A league title are extremely unlikely.

This recent loss at Botafogo ended a six-match unbeaten sequence which saw the hosts record wins over Sao Paulo, Atletico PR and Americo Mineiro, but they’d also drawn with Santos, Vasco da Gama and Ceara, which has ultimately lost them ground on Palmeiras.

A home record of  13-4-0  29/8 is certainly not to be dismissed as the hosts have won six of their last seven on home turf, but I do wonder if their bubble has now burst. Internacional’s attack is spearheaded by Damiao (10 goals) and he has valuable support from Lopez (9 goals, 5 assists). However, Wellington Silva and Rodrigo Moledo both serve suspensions after their sending offs against Botafogo – perhaps another indication of the mounting pressure on Internacional.

Atletico Mineiro will be looking to continue Botafogo’s work of spoiling Internacional’s party when they make their way to Porto Alegre as they seek a third win on the trot in Serie A following recent back-to-back wins against Parana and Bahia.

The visitors bring a three-match unbeaten run into this encounter having also held Serie A league leaders Palmeiras to a 1-1 draw at their Estádio Raimundo Sampaio in Belo Horizonte, so Atletico MG won’t be short on confidence as they look to heap further problems on their title-chasing hosts.

Atletico Mineiro’s away record though is something that’s against them as their record of  4-4-9  21/24 includes just one win from their last eight matches on their travels, a run that includes five losses.

They recently broke this miserable run of results on the road though when they registered a 1-0 win at rock bottom club, Parana. But whilst there’s striker Oliveira (11 goals, 5 assists), Guedes (9 goals) and Cazares (6 goals), the visitors stand a chance of earning a point here.

The betting tips fancy Atletico Mineiro to avoid defeat here.

Pick; Atletico Mineiro AH+0.5 @ 2.00 bet365 (odds taken at 07:02GMT, 21 Nov 2018)
