Atlético-MG vs Corinthians Soccer Prediction Today
The Rooster began the contest with defeat. In Rio de Janeiro, after taking advantage on the scoreboard, took the turn against Vasco and was beaten 2 to 1. He recovered in his first home game. Interrupted a series of four matches without success (three defeats and a tie) when doing 2 to 1 in the Victory. He completed the second round in eleventh place.
Without commitments by other tournaments, coach Interim Thiago Larghi had the free week to prepare the team for the confrontation with the current national champion. The extra time also served for the recovery of the experienced defender Léo Silva and the Colombian midfielder Cazares.
The athletes, who were left out of the game against the red-black Bahian, returned to training and should be listed in the starting team. Who was spared the training was the veteran striker Ricardo Oliveira. With a virus, he got a break. He should not, however, be left out of Sunday’s game.
This will be the fourth consecutive match that Corinthians will take away from home. The third of this series was precisely against the last rival of Atlético-MG in Brasileirão. On the night of Wednesday, April 25, São Paulo’s alvinegro was in the goalless draw with Vitória, in Salvador. This game opened the duel between them for the eighth-finals of the Brazilian Cup. Now, Timon will decide the vacancy at home.In the Brasileirão, the defending champion had a devastating start. After beating Fluminense 2-1 in the opening game, they thrashed Parana 4-0 in the second game to reach the isolated lead of the tournament.
For the duel of this Sunday, still must count on its new reinforcement. The attacker Roger, hired with the International, will most likely be related to the reserve bench with coach Fabio Carille keeping the scheme without a center-forward and using Rodriguinho as “false nine.”
The coach has trouble managing. In the game in Salvador, veteran midfielder Ralf suffered a serious shoulder injury and should be off the pitch for at least a month and a half. That means Gabriel, who had lost the title fight, will be back on the main team.
Another embezzlement is René Junior. The midfielder suffered a concussion shortly before the match against Vitória, was cut and should follow from outside on Sunday.
Soccer Prediction of the Day Atlético-MG vs Corinthians
The physical conditioning can be a weapon of Atletico for the confrontation with Corinthians this Sunday, because the team from São Paulo has a numerically limited cast for an intense schedule. Although the technician Fábio Carille promotes the relay in the titular team, the Corintian wear is clearly greater.
The Rooster, however, has not been convincing in his performances. It has conceded many spaces in the defensive sector and this can be fatal if repeated before the Brazilian champion. So the guess at Corinthians seems to be the best option for the match.
