Team News: Atlético Goianiense
Atlético Goianiense boss Vágner Mancini will be thankful to have no fitness worries whatsoever before this match with a fully healthy squad to pick from.
It’s our opinion that Dragão will possibly opt for a 4-2-3-1 system, beginning the first half with Jean, Nicolas Vichiatto, Éder Ferreira, João Victor Da Silva Marcelino, Dudu, Oliveira, Edson, Matheuzinho, Chico, Gustavo Ferrareis and Renato Kayser.
Team News: Atlético Mineiro
Thanks to a largely healthy group of players, there’s only the lone fitness issue for the Atlético Mineiro boss Jorge Sampaoli to be concerned with. Diego Tardelli (Injury to the ankle) won’t be playing here.
From our viewpoint, Galo could decide to begin the game with a 4-3-3 lineup by sending out Éverson, Guilherme Arana, Júnior Alonso, Rever, Guga, Nathan Allan De Souza, Jair Rodrigues Júnior, Alan Franco, Jefferson Savarino, Eduardo Sasha and Marcos Da Silva Franca.
Here is a game where Atlético Goianiense will need things to go their way to score against this Atlético Mineiro lineup who we reckon should score & stay on top.
We’re therefore anticipating a very even contest with a 0-1 victory for Atlético Mineiro at the end of the match.
There should be little in it.
