Corinthians vs Atlético MG – Brazilian Serie A: The champions Corinthians host Atlético Mineiro in a big derby this Sunday…
As everyone knows, Corinthians have already won the Serie A’s title a few rounds ago.
An inferior roster was able to be superior to their rivals and win the title uncontestably. Since then, the team is just playing for pride on this final stretch of the competition.
On the first match after winning the title, the team, with reserves, left a terrible impression and was heavily dominated by Flamengo, suffering a 3-0 loss.
For this match, Corinthians will need to pay attention to what they failed on against Flamengo.
A lot of starters will return to the team. The stadium will probably be packed with fans and the team will want to host a great celebration party for their recent achievement.

On the other side, Atlético Mineiro dreams about qualifying for the Libertadores.
The team was able to string a good streak of results together on the last few matches and that has allowed them to dream.
At the moment, they sit in 8th place with 50 points gained and they are fighting for that continental spot.
Everything will first lie on whether they can get into the top 6, and they are currently 3 points away from it.
Corinthians vs Atletico MG – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Or whether it will be an extension of the qualification zone to the 9 top spots. I see two interesting bets in this match. Firstly, the goals.
Corinthians playing without pressure and trying to help Jô be the league’s top goal scorer should mean they use a less defensive approach here, creating and allowing more goal scoring chances.
Atlético is a team that has their attack as their main weapon and therefore I believe they can also score. Furthermore, picking Corinthians DNB here is also a good option.
