On June 14 2019 at 00:00 at the Estadio Raimundo Sampaio in the upcoming regular match of the 9th game week of the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A the local Atletico Mineiro will play against their guests Sao Paulo. This will be the match between two representatives of the top of the standings who are going to play against each other this time.
In their eight games played since the start of the season Atletico Mineiro managed to gain 15 points with 13:10 goal difference and these results let them take the third position in the standings. Anyway, the Black and Whites slowed down significantly in their latest matches as after the victories against Flamengo and CSA they lost to Palmeiras, Gremio and Santos.
The results of Sao Paulo are a bit worse as they are on the 8th position now with 13 points gained and 7:4 goal difference. They had a great start of the season as they didn’t win even once in their group matches. As a result, they lost to Corinthians and drew three times in a row playing against Bahia, Cruzeiro and Avai.
Both teams are almost on the same level of development and yet the hosts look a lot stronger now. In such situation we expect both teams to be really close to one another and yet the hosts are a lot more likely to have an advantage.
