Atletico Mineiro vs Santos Tips and Prediction
Mineiro’s record has dipped in recent weeks after starting the season with four straight wins, but they are still in contention for a Copa Libertadores place.
Mineiro, who are currently fourth in the table, have had a steady start to the season, winning four games, drawing four, and losing only two.
Only three teams in the division have lost fewer games than Mineiro, but no team in the top half has allowed more goals, indicating that the Alvinegro still has work to do.
Santos’ poor form is cause for concern, as they approach the weekend without a win in their past five Serie A matches. Granted, the majority of those results were draws, but painful losses to teams like Goias have slowed their progress.
Santos will go into the weekend searching for their first win away from home this season, with plenty of time to turn things around.
Santos’ recent history suggests that this will be a difficult challenge, as they have only won one of their last 16 visits to Mineiro. Santos’ only win away from home against Mineiro since August 2007 came in July 2017, and they’ll be looking to change that on Saturday.
Santos must find a way to improve their form soon if they are to compete at the top of the league this season.
Mineiro’s prospects of winning this weekend are unlikely to be jeopardized, thus anticipate the hosts to win easily on Saturday.
