Atletico Mineiro vs Sport Recife Prediction 22 June 2017

Tournament: Campeonato Brasileiro Série A
Location: Estadio Raimundo Sampaio
Match date: 22.06.2017 at 00:45

On 22 June at 00:45, Atletico Mineiro and Sport Recife will test their strength against each other within the ninth round of the Brazilian Serie A at Estadio Raimundo Sampaio in Belo Horizonte.

Atletico Mineiro, which occupied the fourth place last season, have gradually started to gain points and move further away from the relegation zone. The away victory over Sao Paulo last Sunday was only their second this season and it has interrupted a series of two losses in a row. Let us remind you, that shortly before that, Atletico Mineiro lost to Atletico Paranense and Vitoria, although they were stronger than Avai at their home ground, 1:0.

As it was noted in the previous forecasts, Sport Recife do not set any great goals and a place in the middle of the tournament table is often fine with them. In the current campaign, after eight played rounds to be exact, Sport Recife can be distinguished as one of the worst defense lines in the league, having conceded 14 goals. Also, a 1:3 defeat against Vitoria in the eighth round at home has become the third one within the last five matches. Thus, Sport Recife lost to Vasco da Gama and Avai in the matches, and had a draw with Sao Paulo and victory over Flamengo in between.

As it is expected from a more titled club, Atletico Mineiro usually were stronger than Sport Recife. Last time Atletico Mineiro defeated Sport Recife at their home ground with a score of 1:0. Unlike Sport Recife, Atletico Mineiro remain an ambitious club, which will probably gain some strength during the course of the season.
