Atletico Mineiro will host Corinthians on Sunday - Brasileirao 2022

Atletico Mineiro will host Corinthians at the Governador Magalhaes Pinto on Sunday in the 19th matchday of the Brasileiro Serie A.

The hosts are enjoying a good spell at the moment and remain alive in their pursuit of back-to-back league titles. However, they were held to a 1-1 draw by struggling Cuiaba in their last game and had looked set to come away with maximum points when Alan Kardec opened the scoring deep into additional time before their opponents drew level with virtually the last kick of the game.

Atletico Mineiro sit third in the league table with 32 points from 18 games. They can leapfrog their weekend opponents in the table with maximum points on Sunday and will be looking to do just that.

Corinthians have had mixed results of late but are also in contention for the Brasileiro Serie A title. They returned to winning ways in the league last time out with a comfortable 3-1 home victory over Coritiba. Roger Guedes, Adson and Raul Gustavo all registered their names on the scoresheet.

The Timao are level on points with their weekend hosts but sit a spot higher in the league table due to the fact that they have secured more victories. They are four points behind Palmeiras at the top of the pile and will be looking to reduce that gap when they travel to Minas Gerais on Sunday.
