Atletico Mineiro vs Palmeiras by Mrgol

Atletico Mineiro arrived at this stage passing in eight of final defeating Independiente Santa Fè (Colombia), while Palmeiras excluded Univ. De Sucre, boliviam team.

At this point there is a Brasilian derby.

But Atletico Mg is struggling in championship: with 34 points they are fifth from the bottom, and only goal difference put them out of releagtion places.

So, trainer decided to rest the most part of regulars for Brasilerao and put in this match a many changed team.

As an effect of World Cup, this year Brasilerao has usually two rounds a week, so players are very exhausted.

Atletico MG won last match 4-3 against Cruzeiro, but coach Dorival Junior decided to change all players of that match apart defender Werley (28atts. +1 1goal), winger Zé Luís (17atts.+1 1goal) and keeper Renan Ribeiro (7atts.).

Moreover, only the bench will be understrenghtned, with only 16 players called up for this match

Another situation in Palmeiras, in middle of table in Brasilerao, where they are the third best team away.

Only a doubt for this match, midfielder Valdivia (10atts.+5 2goals), that could be substitued by Lincoln (midf. 12atts.+5 3goals)

The rest of the team will be the same that defeated Univ. De Sucre in previous stage, and the target is to win this match

I think Palmeiras will win here, respective positions in table of Brasilerao show the strenght of the two teams and Atletico is weakened and with all their effort concentrated to not relegate more then to pas in next round of Sudamericana Cup
