Atletico MG vs São Paulo – Brazilian Serie A :Atlético Mineiro hosts São Paulo at Estádio Independencia…
Deception: That’s a word that sums up São Paulo and Atlético Mineiro’s campaign in 2017.
Of course, they have different realities and ambitions, but still, the two teams are having campaigns below their expectations.
Last week, Atlético Mineiro lost the Primeira Liga title to Londrina, which was the “cherry on top” of this disappointing season
where they were eliminated early in Copa Libertadores and Copa do Brasil and are having a below average campaign in the Brazilian Serie A, already without any chance to win the title.
Galo occupies the 9th place at the moment with 34 points. This spot still leaves them with some hope of fighting for a spot on next season’s Copa Libertadores.
As a host, Atlético has only won 3 of 13 matches, getting 3 draws and 7 losses on the remaining fixtures.

Atletico MG vs São Paulo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On São Paulo the problem is a bit worse. The team is fighting to avoid relegation, which was something unimaginable considering their recent history on this competition.
The win over Sport on the last round allowed them to go through this international break outside of the relegation zone. But the problem is
far from being solved.
São Paulo sits in 14th place with 31 points. But I should remind you that their advantage over the first team on the relegation zone is only 1 point.
I predict a match with goals here. Both Atlético and São Paulo are amongst the most vulnerable defences of this competition. 4
São Paulo is the 6th worst defence on the Brazilian Serie A and Atlético is the 2nd worst defence playing as visitors.
Therefore, my betting pick here is both teams to score.
