Atletico Mineiro to Win

Despite the disappointing loss in the first round of Serie A, we expect Atletico to win this game. After all, the team that finished third last season obviously has more quality than the team that barely avoided relegation, so we expect Atletico to be more focused. The team will miss a few players due to their international duties, but Sport Recife also has a few injuries to deal with. Furthermore, Atletico Mineiro has won two of the last three games against Sport Recife.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

These two teams have played some high-scoring games in recent history. In fact, three of their last five head-to-head meetings have ended with not just three, but at least five goals total. With that in mind, and the fact that both teams went over 2.5 total goals in their first-round matches, makes us think that we will see at least three goals in this game.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since we expect to see more than two goals in this game, our next prediction is for both teams to score as well. After all, both teams have scored in four of the last five h2h matches between Sport Recife and Atletico Mineiro. And both teams have scored in the games that these teams played in the first round of the season as well.

Sport Recife vs Atletico Mineiro preview: Can Atletico get some points on the board?

Neither Sport Recife nor Atletico Mineiro managed to win in the first round of the new Serie A season, although the home team managed to get a draw at least. So, let’s take a more detailed look at these teams ahead of the second round:

Sport Recife

Avoiding relegation by just one point last season was a stressful experience for Sport Recife fans and they’ll hope to avoid the same scenario this season. The team entered the new season after a good run in Campeonato Pernambucano and they managed to snatch a point in an away game with Internacional in the first round. Sport Recife had extra time to rest this week since they’ve had a disappointing first-round exit in Copa do Brasil, unlike their upcoming opponent who had to play a mid-week cup game. That being said, the team is struggling with a few injuries at the moemnt.

Atletico Mineiro

After finishing third last season with three points behind the eventual champions Flamengo, Atletico Mineiro entered the new season in Serie A high on confidence due to their performances in the Copa Libertadores and Campeonato Mineiro. However, the team suffered a surprising defeat at home to Fortaleza in the first round of the Brazilian league last weekend. They did manage to bounce back with a cup win over Clube Do Remo a few days after that and they’ll be looking to get their first points against Sport Recife. The main problem for the team is the absence of three players who are on international duty at the moment.
