The 12th round of Brazilian Seria A comes with an interesting one: 3rd place Atletico Mineiro goes at Neo Quimica Arena with only one objective: the fifth consecutive win and to continue their journey to the top of the table. Not a good championship until now for Corinthians as they have struggled a lot and find themselves in 12th place with 14 points in 11 matches. They surely have to change a lot of things if they want to enter Copa Libertadores. It will not be easy for either of them, although Atletico Mineiro lately seems in a better form. Corinthians will play this game at home, and it can be a decisive factor for them to win. Even with not a good start with only three wins in 11 matches and only one win in the last 5, the defense of Corinthians seems to be very solid and has conceded only eight goals in total until now: the fewest in the league. The attack hasn't been brilliant so far, with only eight goals scored, and that's the part that is struggling the most so far.
On the other hand, after getting a 0-0 draw in the last 16 of Copa Libertadores against the Argentinian giants Boca Juniors, Mineiro has won four consecutive games and only conceded two goals matches. A super form which they would want to continue further as they can reach the top of the table. One thing is certain we will see a hard-fought match!
