Atletico Mineiro vs Flamengo
Atletico Mineiro y Flamengo will play in the 10th round of the Brazilian Football Championship. This will be the most important match of the round. Before the start of the season, both teams were considered to be favorites to win the tournament. However, in fact, both teams in the first rounds looked weaker than not only Palmeiras and Athletico Paranaense, but most importantly, to Bragantino, the newcomer of Brazilian soccer.
Atletico Mineiro current form
After failing to win against Chapecoense, Ceará and Santos, Atletico Mineiro achieved two consecutive victories over Atletico Go and Cuiabá.

Before the current round, this team was in 4th place with 16 points, five points less than Bragantino, the leader of the championship. Atletico Mineiro’s home stats look average and they are in eighth place in the division to be exact. In four games, the Galos won twice, tied once, and lost once as well.
Flamengo current form
The Copa America 2021 is coming to an end, which means that very soon we will see not only Atletico Mineiro, but also Flamengo in its optimal lineup. In the meantime, the Red and Blacks are constantly under pressure, in the last five games the team from Rio de Janeiro has lost three times and achieved two victories over Fortaleza and Cuiaba. Flamengo noticeably lacks stability; not surprisingly, the visitors are only 10th in the standings with 12 points. They are currently 11th in the division standings with a 2-1 goal difference.
Betting and prediction
Even though Flamengo won the Brazilian championship last season, Atletico Mineiro won both face-offs against the Red and Blacks scoring 1-0 and 4-0. What we are now seeing is that the Galos, after a slump in late June, came to their senses in early July and achieved two consecutive wins that put Atletico Mineiro back in the top 4 of the Brasileirao. Flamengo, unfortunately, does not show a good level in the championship, we believe that the series of victories of the Galos over the Red and Blacks will continue. We offer the following odds for the game: W1 for 2.70, TO 2.5 for 2.07, Both Teams To Score - Yes for 1.75.
