Corinthians played one match after the international break and won 2:0 against Bahia.
The victory is valuable, particularly because was obtain away from home. With these three points Corinthians are sharing the fifth position with four other teams. The coach Tite is surely satisfied with the performances of his players. The key star Alexandre Pato is in good form, he scored both goals against Bahia.
Atletico Mineiro also won in the first match after the international break. They managed to beat Criciuma with 3:2. At the moment Atletico are sharing the 13th position with two more teams. The fans are not satisfied with the results, but there is a reason for that – Atletico Mineiro are focused on Copa Libertadores. And exactly that fact is the crucial reason for my pick. The coach Cuca will rested the best players from this match. Atletico play against Olimpia Asuncion from Paraguay in Copa Libertadores final on Wednesday night and all eyes are focused on that match.
I believe Corinthians are closer to the victory, even in normal circumstances, not to mention now, when Atletico Mineiro will play with reserve team. The recent history are also favoring Corinthians. They have four victories on the last four mutual games at home.I believe Corinthians will win again.
