08-07-23 Daily Football Predictions : Atletico Mineiro vs Corinthians

Betting Tips

Atletico Mineiro seeks a long-overdue victory when Corinthians travel to Mineirao on Saturday after their winless run was extended to five games with a derby draw last week.

Days before their Sao Paulo counterparts succumbed to America in the cup. Atletico was held by neighborhood rivals America Mineiro in the last Campeonato Brasileiro match.

Atletico Mineiro vs Corinthians

This season, the hosts have struggled with their Brasileiro Serie A results, but they have put on good displays in other competitions. In their last-16 match in May, America defeated International 2-0 in the first leg but fell behind 3-1 in the second leg before winning on penalties.

Meanwhile, Corinthians, who haven’t performed much better than their rivals in the league, will aim for a successful outcome in the cup. They earned a spot in the quarterfinals, much like their rivals, after defeating Atletico Mineiro on penalties in their last-16 match. The guests have previously won the Copa do Brasil; their most recent cup victory was in 2009. They hope to advance further this season after losing to Flamengo in last year’s final.

America Mineiro is having trouble in the competition and is now in the relegation zone with nine points from thirteen games in Serie A. On the plus side, the team advanced to the Copa do Brasil quarterfinals and Copa Sudamericana elimination rounds.

One of Brazil’s most illustrious clubs hasn’t lived up to expectations this year, especially after finishing fourth in the nation last time around. After all, Corinthians has eleven points from 13 games and is currently just above the relegation zone in Serie A. They are, however, in the quarterfinals of the Copa do Brasil, so they might be able to preserve their season by making it all the way there.

Verdict

Atletico Mineiro under former Celta Vigo manager Eduardo Coudet started out slowly under his leadership, but they have since bounced back and are doing fairly well. The hosts, though, are coming off a slump; after drawing 2-2 with America Mineiro at home, they have now gone five games without a victory in any tournament. They take on a Corinthians team that has struggled to impress and play well in Serie A. The guests are situated between the bottom four and the relegation spots. Despite their uneven recent form, Atletico Mineiro are the clear favorites for this matchup, especially with home advantage.

In three of Atletico MG’s most recent 10 games in all competitions, there were over 2.5 goals. During this streak, they scored 1.1 goals on average. In two of Corinthians’ last 10 games, which saw just one goal scored, there were over 2.5 goals. In their previous nine straight games, Atletico MG scored in at least one match.
