Competition: Brazil Serie A

Market: Atlético Mineiro win

Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport

Only hoping to extend their buffer at the top of the Serie A table in midweek, Atlético Mineiro will welcome Corinthians to the Mineirão late on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Atlético Mineiro might not have been at their fluid best over the weekend, Galo did manage to pick up what was a deserved victory on home soil. Claiming a 1-0 win against América Mineiro and continuing to gain a host of plaudits from across Brazil this season, Head Coach Cuca finds his side almost cruising towards the Serie A title this year. Opening the midweek fixtures still holding a commanding 10 point buffer at the top of the table, the Belo Horizonte-based outfit are enjoying what has been a largely impressive purple patch. Including collecting back-to-back victories over the past week, Wednesday’s hosts have won five of their last six matchups across all formats, a run that stems back to October 17th. Riding a real wave, it should also be noted that Atlético Mineiro have won each of their last seven straight contests on home soil.

As for the visitors, managing to pick up back-to-back 1-0 wins against Chapecoense and Fortaleza, Corinthians still find themselves leading the chase to clinch a top-six finish. However, facing what should be a stern trip to the Mineirão late on Wednesday night, Head Coach Sylvinho has seen his side continue to struggle with their issues on the road. Including back-to-back defeats against Sport Recife and São Paulo last month, it should be noted that their Brazilian boss has seen his side fail to win any of their last five straight fixtures away from the Neo Química Arena. Suffering a 2-1 loss the last time they faced off against their midweek hosts back in July, Corinthians have lost each of their last four consecutive meetings against the Serie A leaders.
