Atletico Mineiro vs Fortaleza Predictions

  • Atletico Mineiro have won three of their last four home Serie A contests.
  • Fortaleza have lost four of their five league road trips in 2022.
  • Fewer than four goals have been scored in the last five Atletico Mineiro home league games and three of Fortaleza’s last five aways.

Rooster should strut their stuff at home

Atletico Mineiro will want the job done with the minimum of fuss when they host Serie A strugglers Forteleza a few days before a trip to Colombia in the Copa Libertadores. So it’s two teams with bigger fish to fry that will face off on Sunday as the visitors from the north east are also due to host Estudiantes in the last-16 of the South American club tournament next week.

Rooster are strong at home and the onus will be more on them to get the three points while Fortaleza have presumably put all their eggs into the Copa Libertadores basket this year. Leão do Pici have lost each of their last three games that preceded group stage matches and taken seven points from a possible nine in those subsequent contests.

That explains the wildly oscillating pattern of results for Juan Pablo Vojvoda’s men, who sit second bottom of the Serie A standings. It makes it easier to swallow the short price on the hosts here, although there could be a way to boost the odds by factoring in a likely lower goal expectation.

Game unlikely to be open ahead of big Copa clashes

Fewer than four goals have been scored in the last five Atletico Mineiro home league games and three of Fortaleza’s last five aways, so it’s reasonable to assume this one doesn’t explode into life. As well as backing Atletico Mineiro to win with fewer than 3.5 goals on the scoreboard, a 2-1 home win appeals most in correct score betting.

Rooster have scored exactly two goals in five of their seven home league games in 2022 and that ought to be enough for victory against a Fortaleza side that average 1.2 goals on the road this saeson.
