Brasiliense will play host to Atletico Mineiro in the second leg of their Copa do Brasil third-round clash on Monday.

The Alvinegro head into the game with a three-goal advantage after cruising to a comfortable 3-0 victory back in April’s reverse leg.

Brazilian lower tier outfit Brasiliense suffered a huge blow in their Copa do Brasil title hunt as they fell to a 3-0 first-leg defeat against Atletico Mineiro on April 20.

However, they head into Monday’s game fresh off the back of a 2-1 home victory over Ceilândia in the Serie D.

Brasiliense, who have now won each of their last three outings, will look to keep the juggernaut rolling and complete an incredible cup comeback.

Atletico Mineiro, on the other hand, maintained their sensational run in the Copa Libertadores as they claimed a 3-1 win over Independiente last time out.

They are now unbeaten in all but one of their last 23 games across all competitions, with a 2-1 loss to America Mineiro on May 7 being the only exception.

Atletico Mineiro have equally enjoyed a solid start to the Serie A campaign as they currently sit second in the standings with 12 points from seven games.
