Goias vs Atletico Mineiro Predictions

Battle at Serrinha: Struggling Goias vs Continental Hopefuls Atletico Mineiro

Key Stats
– Goias have lost three of their last five home games in the Brasileirao.
– Atletico Mineiro hold the third-best away record in the competition.
– Both teams have been involved in games with under 2.5 goals in their recent fixtures.

In the fifteenth round of the Brasileirao, two teams at contrasting points in their seasons lock horns. Goias, struggling in the relegation quagmire, will play host to Atletico Mineiro, a team with ambitions of staying in the race for continental places, at the Estadio da Serrinha on Monday night. The stakes are high; Goias could escape the dreaded relegation zone with a victory coupled with favourable outcomes elsewhere, while Mineiro aim to solidify its position in the continental qualification bracket.

A Glimmer of Hope Amid Domestic Despair for Goias

The hosts, Goias, have recently tasted continental success with a 2-1 triumph over Independiente Santa Fe in the Copa Sudamericana. However, their domestic form is a cause for concern. A run of three straight defeats has seen them plunge into the relegation abyss, with a potential lifeline in the form of overtaking Bahia contingent on other results in the gameweek. Led by Armando Evangelista, Goias sit two points behind Bahia, the 16th-placed team. With their match against Mineiro rounding off the gameweek, they will be well aware of their required result.

Goias’ home record this season does little to inspire confidence; they have only managed to secure two victories at the Estadio da Serrinha while losing three of their last five games. Their average BettingTips4You Experts rating of 6.74 ranks 18th out of 20 teams in the league, a testament to their struggle. This paints a bleak picture for a team looking to escape relegation. Despite this, their attacking potential is noteworthy, averaging 13.4 total shots and 1.6 big chances per game.

Mineiro’s Search for Consistency

On the other side, Atletico Mineiro, despite their lofty league position, have been underwhelming. A six-match winless streak across all competitions underlines their recent struggles. Luiz Felipe Scolari, who took over the reins in late June, is yet to taste victory in Belo Horizonte.

Their recent 1-0 home defeat to Corinthians serves as a painful reminder of their inability to convert opportunities into victories. However, their away form provides a glimmer of hope; they boast the third-best away record in the competition, potentially tilting the scales in their favour.

Key Players and Possible Lineups

Missing the game for Goias is Guilherme, a significant blow given his recent goal-scoring form against Santos. However, the potential return of Everton Morelli provides some much-needed midfield reinforcement. Their probable lineup includes: Tadeu; Maguinho, Halter, Melo, Sander; Morelli, Ze Ricardo; Matheusinho, Palacios, Alesson; Peixoto.

For Mineiro, Hulk’s return from suspension should boost the attacking prowess of a side that has struggled for goals recently. The possible starting lineup for Mineiro is: Everson; Saravia, Lemos, Jemerson, Arana; Gomes, Edenilson, Battaglia; Pavon, Hulk, Paulinho.

Predictions
Match Outcome – Draw

The underwhelming form of both teams makes it difficult to predict a clear winner for this matchup. Goias, plagued by a series of losses, stands on shaky ground, while Mineiro, despite their promising start to the season, have been enduring a winless spell. Goias’ home ground hasn’t been much of an advantage lately with three losses in their last five matches. Meanwhile, Mineiro have failed to capitalise on their third-best away record in the competition.

Goias’ chances of breaking their losing streak are dampened by the absence of playmaker Guilherme. On the other side, even though Hulk is returning to Mineiro’s squad, the team has yet to find its stride under Luiz Felipe Scolari’s management. The recent form, coupled with the necessity for both teams to regain some footing, makes a draw a plausible prediction for this match. This outcome will not only yield a higher return but is also supported by the current stats and form of both teams.

Correct Score – 1-1

Delving deeper into the specifics of the game, a correct score prediction of 1-1 seems feasible. Despite their poor form, both teams have shown capabilities of finding the back of the net. Goias, with an average of 1.0 goals per game, and Mineiro, with an average of 1.3, have proven they can create scoring opportunities.

Considering Goias’ higher rate of goals conceded per game (1.9) against Mineiro’s (1), one might predict a Mineiro victory. However, the current form of both teams, coupled with Mineiro’s recent difficulty in securing victories, leads us to anticipate a single goal from each side.

Goalscorer Prediction – Hulk

With Guilherme out of the equation for Goias, the goalscoring spotlight turns to Mineiro’s forward line, particularly Hulk. Despite serving a suspension in the previous match, Hulk’s past performance indicates he is a serious threat in front of the goal. With a significant role in Mineiro’s average of 1.3 goals per game, his return to the lineup increases the likelihood of him finding the back of the net.

The presence of Hulk on the pitch could also increase Mineiro’s successful dribbles per game (10.9) and total shots per game (15.0), given his physical prowess and goal-scoring ability. His potential as a goal scorer is therefore a justified prediction for this match, and considering the current form of both teams, his chances of scoring at least once are high.
