Atletico MG vs Sao Paulo by 20legend
Atletico MG lost their first game against Cortiba (2-1) away in the last round. Instead of playing a league game last week, Atletico MG played against Tijuana in Copa Liberatores quarterfinals, and went to the Semi-finals after a 1-1 draw (3-3 on aggregate) and more scored goals away.
Sao Paulo has made it very good start to their season with 2-0-0 from the two first games and 7-1 on goal difference. They beat Ponte Preta (0-2) away in the first game, while they smashed Vasco da Gama (5-1) at home in their last match. They are 3rd at the table with one match less played than both 2nd placed Botafogo and 1st placed Vitoria, so they can lead the league if they win this one. Atletico have a huge upper hand in these meetings as they have won 4 of the last five meetings with Sao Paulo who only has one victory. Atletico actually beat Sao Paulo both at home (4-1) and away (1-2) in the Copa Libertadores recently in the 1/8 finals earlier in May this year.
Sao Paulo seems to struggle against Atletico, but their form seems to be better at the moment. However, Atletico have shown that they can beat Sao Paulo both at home and away, so it should be a very exciting battle tonight. The two meetings in Copa Libertadores 1/8 finals both ended over 2.5 goals, as 3 of their five last meetings have involved at least three goals. I can see both teams win here, but I fancy Atletico MG. However, I go for over 2.5 goals in this meeting as well.
