In Wednesday’s Serie A match at the Estádio Cícero Pompeu in Toledo, local side São Paulo will face Atlético Mineiro.
Sao Paulo will be hoping for a similar result after beating Atlético Goianiense 2-1 in Serie A, buoyed by their previous result.
It’s been rare for Sao Paulo to show defensive steel lately. It will worry them that Sao Paulo have seen their defense breached in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 5 goals in that span. Whether this trend will continue remains to be seen. Atlético Mineiro enters this match after winning 1-0 in Serie A with the eclipse of Juventude in the previous match.
The tendency of at least one team not to score in matches with Atlético Mineiro has become quite consistent in recent matches. If you check their last 6 encounters, it turns out that this has happened 5 times. In these clashes, their opponents scored a total of 2 goals, while Atlético Mineiro scored 5.
We think Atlético Mineiro and San Paolo will both score in what promises to be a very balanced battle here.
The draw seems like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. Therefore, we are oriented towards a close match with a 1-1 disadvantage at the end of this match.
If you look at their previous head to head matches from 27/10/2019 no club is top of the general standings, São Paulo won two of those matches, Atlético Mineiro 2 and 2 were drawn in regulation time.
