Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: Atlético Mineiro win
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Looking to continue on what has been a stellar run of form, Atlético Mineiro will welcome Bahia to the Mineirão on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, picking up what was a dramatic penalties victory against South American giants Boca Juniors earlier in the week and extending on their Copa Libertadores adventure, the mood in Atlético Mineiro’s camp should be at a real high. Once again tipped as one of the leading contenders in the Serie A title race this season, Galo are enjoying a real purple patch. Last seen on domestic duties picking up a 2-1 victory against Corinthians on the road, Head Coach Cuca has seen his side gain a string of plaudits. In fact, only continuing to bounce back from their sluggish end to June, Atlético Mineiro find themselves enjoying a five-match Serie A winning run. More impressive, Sunday’s hosts have collected 10 points from their last four domestic matchups at the Mineirão.
As for the visitors, although Bahia might have found themselves enjoying a much-needed boost when opening July, it appears that could have just been a minor boost for Dado Cavalcanti’s side. Coming under real scrutiny for what was billed as a season-worst display last time out, Tricolor were hit with a 5-0 drumming at the hands of Flamengo on home soil. Failing to bounce back from their 1-0 loss against São Paulo earlier in the month, Bahia have found themselves come tumbling down the Serie A standings. Losing four of their last six top-flight matchups and facing what should be another overwhelming test when they travel to the Mineirão on Sunday afternoon, we’re backing a home victory here.
Bet: Atlético Mineiro 7/10 to beat Bahia in Sunday’s Brazil Serie A showdown @ 888sport
