Tip Reasoning

Sunday’s Brazilian Serie A clash features Atletico Mineiro playing host to Fluminense. The home side are expected to claim victory over the tired visitors.

Atletico arrive in buoyant mood after beating local rivals America Mineiro 3-1 in mid-week, lifting themselves up to 4th in table. That represents a strong start for Galo and is something they’ll be aiming to continue in this fixture.

Prior to the aforementioned win, Thiago Larghi’s troops had won just 1 of their last 5 outings and will now be looking to put together another run of form. This Atletico team is undoubtedly a talented one and has the potential to challenge at the top end, but only if they can find more consistency, especially in matches like this. 7 wins from the last 11 home matches does boost confidence coming into the match, and fans are set to flock to the Estádio Independência in expectant mood.

Meanwhile, we said a couple of weeks ago that Fluminense would probably struggle as the schedule grew more demanding and that has certainly proved to be the case. With a small squad and problems mounting, Abel Braga has had little room for manoeuvre and leads a Tricolor team that has now picked up just 1 point from the last available 9.

Fluminense were very poor in their defeat to rivals Fluminense in mid-week, with tiredness looking to have caught up with them. A defeat to newly promoted Parana in the match preceding that has confidence low coming into the match, something only compounded when you consider the side have lost 3 of their last 4 away matches.

With an ever-growing treatment room, particularly affecting the visitors going forward, Fluminense look set to struggle and Atletico will fancy their chances in this match, and as such, we’re more than happy to back them to win with full confidence.

Atletico have some excellent players in attacking lines and they’re certainly firing on all cylinders, having plunged home an average of 2.66 goals a game over their last 3 matches. Up against a depleted Fluminense team, the home side should win this one fairly comfortably, with a 2-0 margin of victory on the cards. The visitors don’t look like offering much of a threat in attack, whilst they’ve conceded exactly two goals in all 3 of their previously mentioned defeats on the road.

Atlético Mineiro possible starting XI: Victor; Patric, Silva, Gabriel, Santos; Adilson, Blanco, Luan, Cazares, Guedes; Oliveira

Fluminense possible starting XI: Cesar; Gilberto, Chaves, Gum, Peres, Vitor; Richard, Jadson, Douglas; Sornoza, Carlos.
