On betting sites like betfair Atlético-MG has a good advantage. Cuca’s men are currently in seventh position on the leaderboard, with 32 points in 20 games, a campaign below expectations for those who were champions last year. The team faced Palmeiras in the middle of the week in the first leg of the Libertadores quarterfinals and ended up drawing 2-2.

Athletico-PR is in fourth place, with 34 points in 20 games. The team’s campaign inside the Arena da Baixada under the command of Felipão is very good, but in the away games the result is not the same.

The lineups of both teams must be merged with players considered starters and reserves, as the two clubs have decisive commitments scheduled for the course of the week in different continental competitions. Galo should use the players acquired in the transfer window, such as midfielder Pedrinho, ex-Corinthians, but the problem is the chemistry that is no longer very good.
