Vasco vs Atlético MG – Brazilian Serie A: On a direct duel for a spot in next year’s Copa Libertadores…
Vasco da Gama hosts Atlético Mineiro tonight on a Brazilian Serie A’s match…
In every league match featuring Atlético Mineiro we see the same thing. The team has the players and has the money but this season they
haven’t been presenting a football fitting with all this investment this season.
Therefore, after several failures, the big goal for them this season is ensuring a spot on the next Copa Libertadores.
Altético currently sits in 10th place with 46 points and they are banking on the expansion of the number of qualification spots that should happen to conquer a spot on the continental tournament.
Away from home the team has 7 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses, having a goal record of 22 goals scored and 19 goals conceded.
For this match Felipe Santana, Gabriel, Cazares and Luan are absent. But Leonardo Silva, Fred and Marcos Rocha are available once again.

Vasco is no longer at risk of being relegated and have a positive going since the arrival of manager Zé Ricardo, which allows them to dream about a possible spot on next year’s Copa Libertadores.
Vasco is currently in 8th place with 49 points and they are only 2 points away from the top 6, which means they might not even need the expanded qualification spots.
Playing as hosts, they have 7 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses, having a goal record of 18 goals scored and 19 goals conceded.
For this match Zé Ricardo will have the returns of Breno and Wellington. Luís Fabiano is the only absence, since he is still recovering.
Vasco vs Atlético MG – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On paper, Atlético Mineiro has a better team. But Vasco seems to be more organized tactically and more efficient.
I’ll believe in that to make this bet. Atlético’s quality hasn’t had an impact so far, which means I favour Vasco to win here, especially since they play at home.
