The fifteenth round of the Brazilian Serie A will start with a match between Juventude and Atletico Mineiro. Despite the field factor, the Galo are the clear favorites to win the game. That said, it should not be forgotten that the team played a tough away match in the Libertadores Cup play-offs in midweek.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
In the last round, Juventude kicked 29 shots towards goal and nine into the net but, by some miracle, failed to score as the game ended in a 0:0 draw. The draw was the first positive result and the victory over Fluminense since June fifth. In between, Juventude suffered four defeats. In other words, we cannot speak of any good form for the home side. Juventude is 19th in the Serie A standings, four points behind Coritiba, who sits at the 16th position. Juventude's home statistics are also 19th in the division, +1=2-4, 6:12 goal difference.
Atletico Mineiro has a six-match unbeaten streak, but their first game against Emelec ended in a 1:1 draw. Moreover, Galo took the lead but conceded a goal in the second half, so the team's result can be described as optimistic. Atletico Mineiro is fifth in the Serie A standings, five points behind Palmeiras. The gap is not critical, but it is certainly not in the plans of the reigning champions of Brazil. However, Atletico Mineiro's away statistics are not the best, just 9th in the division, +1=4-1, 7:8 goal difference.
Expert Betting Tips
Despite Atletico Mineiro's poor away statistics, we're on the side of the Galo in this pairing. We think Juventude is league outsiders and first in line for relegation. That said, Atletico Mineiro is a bottom side on the road, and Juventude isn't precisely high scorers, so we doubt this game will be a high-scoring encounter.
