Atletico MG is fourth in the standings after seven games, with 12 points. They each won and drew three games while losing once. On points, the hosts are tied for the final promotion berth in the Copa Libertadores with the likes of Palmeiras, S.P., and Botafogo RJ.
Atletico Mineiro will be wary of repeating their 1-2 Copa Libertadores loss to Deportes Tolima in their previous match here. Since their last six games, they have not been able to stop scoring goals. During that time, the guests have amassed 9 points while giving up 6 points.
While Avai sits in 10th place on the standings with 10 points, it’s a different story. After seven matches, they each won and lost three times each, with one draw thrown in for good measure. Another important reason is their attacking problems, as they have only scored eight goals so far.
Following a 2-1 league defeat against Athletico PR, Avai will be looking to bounce back in this matchup. Five of the six previous meetings between these two teams have yielded a minimum of three goals. Ava has scored an average of 1.17 goals per game.
