Sport Recife vs Atletico Miniero Predictions and Betting Tips
Having failed to pick up maximum points in the opening games of the season, Sport Recife and Atletico Miniero will both go at each other with that in mind. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Atletico Mineiro with 13 wins in 23 games heading into this matchup as the dominant side compared with Sport Recife’s 5 victories. It is also important to note that the visitors haven’t lost to their opponents in the last three games.
Highly-anticipated encounter on the cards
Sport Recife kicked off the season with a highly-entertaining 2-2 draw away at Internacional. This is certainly a decent result given that Internacional managed a second-place finish at the end of last season. With that confidence-boosting point, we expect them to make Monday’s matchup as entertaining as possible.
Atletico Miniero, on the other hand, didn’t get the best of starts as they lost to Fortaleza in their opening fixture- a side that just escaped relegation at the end of last season. Cuca’s side was done in by a late goal from Fortaleza’s Yago Pikachu as the game ended 2-1. Can they manage to get back to winning ways?
Sport Recife vs Atletico Miniero Prediction: 1-2
We expect to see a closely contested encounter with both sides going in search of their first set of three points this season. However, Atletico Miniero managed to pick up a victory in the Copa do Brazil and we expect them to just edge out their opponents on Monday.
