Atletico MG: Difficulties pile up ( Recent Form: W L D L W )
Atletico MG is a major force at the Brazilian Championship. Compared to rivals, they are more appreciated, better squad quality and are holding good rankings. After 10 rounds, Atletico MG has 6 victories, 1 draw and 3 failures. They ranked 4th out of 20 teams with 19 points, only one point behind the team. Atletico MG owns a highly rated team. They scored stable, giving themselves important victories. However, it seems that because of the competition in the Championship, this team is somewhat subjective in the Brazilian Football Cup. The quarter-final match, despite being rated higher than the opponent, Rodrigo Santana and his teachers suddenly lost to the score of 0-3. Broader, the last 10 games this team also played unstable. They won 4, drew 2 and lost 4 times. Losing 3 goals without losing in the first quarter quarter-final made many worried about the future of Atletico MG in the Brazilian Football Cup. The fans only know the hope that home fortunes will help this team make a wonderful comeback. Remember that the last 4/5 matches were played at Estádio Independência, Atletico MG are unbeaten.
Cruzeiro: It's easy to play ( Recent Form: L D L W D )
Although the Cruzeiro is not overestimated, the Cruzeiro is doing very well. This team made a big surprise when beating Atletico MG at home in the first leg with a score of 3-0. It is important to know that in the Championship they are just under the team, struggling at the bottom of the table. So no one thought Cruzeiro would defeat such a top team. Talk a bit about Cruzeiro in the Brazilian Championship, they are only ranked 16/20 teams, only 1 point away from the dangerous team. Having a patchy, unappreciated squad, Cruzeiro is a very ineffective team. Goods only scored 9 goals in 10 matches, while crafts have conceded 16 goals. However, their fighting spirit and efforts are admirable. Perhaps thanks to that, Cruzeiro made a surprise in the first leg of the Brazil quarter-finals. Cruzeiro's performance before the upcoming game is not good at all. Winning in the first leg is the only time in the last 10 games they have been celebrated, the rest is just a draw and a disappointing defeat. However, thanks to the previous 3 games, Mano Menezes's teachers will be much simpler. Just keep alert, concentrate, the ticket to the semifinals will reach them.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, statistics show that in the last five rounds of competition between the two teams, Atletico-MG never surpassed Cruzeiro when there were 3 draws and 2 victories for Cruzeiro. Perhaps the Atletico-MG players will give up the National Cup to focus on the league, where Atletico-MG is ranked 4th on the standings.
