Atletico Mineiro vs Sao Paulo Match Preview
Atletico Mineiro have made a highly encouraging start to the season and are fancied to gain another victory at home to Sao Paulo.
Brazilian champions only once, in 1971, but Copa Libertadores winners much more recently in 2013, Atletico are hot on the heels of Serie A leaders Palmeiras and Santos this term.
Their main strength has been their home form with three wins out of four, scoring eight goals in those victories, and just a solitary defeat to reigning champions Palmeiras.
Sao Paulo, meanwhile, were eighth of 20 entering match-week nine and have been difficult to beat, primarily because they have been keeping things very tight defensively.
The only team to have got the better of Sao Paulo so far are Corinthians, who beat them 1-0 at home, but draws have been the order of the day up to now for head coach Cuca’s side.
This is something of a clash of styles, with Atletico Mineiro generally the much more expansive, but Sao Paulo could make life awkward for them and so we will back the home side to grind out merely a narrow victory.
