Corinthians have been unable to pick up wins lately, having won only two of their last ten games across all competitions. Sylvinho's side are currently 12th in the table, however, a win on Sunday could potentially take them up to 6th in the league.
Atletico Mineiro, on the other hand, have been on a great run of form. Cuca's side are currently on a five-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, having won four of them. A win on sunday could see Galo end the weekend at the top of the table.
This is a great opportunity for both sides to climb up the league standings, as both sides will be looking to win the game on Sunday.
Corinthians vs Atletico Mineiro Head-to-Head
Atletico Mineiro are the clear favorites based on the recent head-to-head record between the two sides, having won three of their last five league meetings, with Corinthians only winning one.
Atletico Mineiro came away as 2-1 winners the last time the two sides met back in November 2020. Goals from Guilherme Arana and Marrony were enough to secure all three points after Matheus Alvarenga gave Corinthians the early lead.
