Atletico Mineiro to Win
The leaders of the league have managed to get far away from most other teams, with only Flamengo on their tails nine points and two games behind. Meanwhile, Santos is barely above the relegation zone at the moment by two points, so they need all the points they can get. Atletico Mineiro has a few players on international duty, which could be a chance for Santos. However, Atletico is still the better team and since all five previous meetings between these two teams were won by the home team, our prediction is for Atletico Mineiro to win this game.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
Three of the last five head-to-head matches between Atletico Mineiro and Santos have gone under 2.5 total goals and we expect the same thing to happen once again. After all, Atletico averaged 2.25 goals per game so far in Serie A, while Santos averaged 2.13 goals per game this season in the league.
Correct Score: 2-0
If you want to take a punt on a bet with very high odds, betting on correct score is always a viable option. In this particular case, our prediction would be for the match to end 2-0 since there of the previous five h2h meetings between Atletico Mineiro and Santos have ended 2-0. In addition to this, two of these three matches have been Atletico Mineiro wins.

Atletico Mineiro vs Santos preview: Can Santos put up a fight here?
While the home team is leading the league at the moment, the guests are struggling in the fight against relegation. So, let us check both teams out in more detail:
The team that is currently the front-runner in the race for the title in Serie A is in good form obviously, as they also reached the semi-finals of Copa do Brasil – although they were eliminated in the Copa Libertadores semis. Atletico Mineiro is currently eleven points ahead of Flamengo who is in second place, but Atletico only has one win in the last five matches in all competitions. They also have personnel problems at the time, with Savarino, Costa, Vargas and Mariano on the injury list, and Franco, Alana, and Alonso with away on international duty.
The team that reached the final of Copa Libertadores last season is currently in serious danger of getting relegated to Serie B. At the moment, Santos is just one point ahead of the first team in the relegation zone and they will have a stressful remainder of the season for sure. Santos is without a win in the league in the last eight games and they have a lot of injury problems right now – too many injured players to list here.
