Figueirense don’t come into this game in the best of spirits following a convincing 4-0 defeat against leaders Palmeiras in midweek. They wouldn’t really have been expecting to get anything from the game and they again come into this as underdogs but home advantage gives them a slightly better chance. They are unbeaten at the Estádio Orlando Scarpelli so far in the league and 12 of their 14 points so far have come at home with Internacional and Sao Paulo among their victims.

Atletico Mineiro are perhaps a step up in class on even those sides though. They may have made a rocky start to the season but right now you have to say they look very good indeed especially going forward. They scored 5 times in midweek against Botafogo with Fred, Robinho and Cazares causing plenty of havoc in the opposition defence and they look to have a strike-force capable of firing them into serious title contention. There are still a few problems at the other end as 3 goals conceded in midweek would indicate but you’d back them to outscore their opponents at the moment and they are looking for a 5th straight win here.

Given Figueirense have failed to score in all of their last 3 matches and only 1 team has scored fewer goals than them in the league so far, Atletico Mineiro aren’t likely to need to score that many goals to win this. They’ve only lost once on the road so far and they are not one of those teams that seems to lose the plot when they play away. The way they have been playing you have to fancy the visitors here against a Figueirense side that very nearly went down last year and is struggling again. Therefore consider backing Atletico Mineiro to win at 6/5.

Head To Head
Atletico MG won 1-0 here in the league last season but were also beaten 2-1 in the Brazilian Cup on this ground.

Stats
Figueirense have failed to score in 50% of their league matches so far. Atletico Mineiro have won their last 4 matches averaging 2.67 goals scored per game.

Team News

Midfielder Elicarlos returns from suspension here so Jackson Caucaia is likely to drop out of the side.

Juan Cazares, who scored inside 15 seconds in midweek will play behind Fred again with few changes expected from the visitors. Marcos Rocha is back from a ban and may come into the side.
