The hosts and the visiting side have both scored eight goals in five league games so far but the hosts have the better defensive record, conceding four goals while the visitors have let in six goals.

When Atletico Mineiro travel to Bracanga for this game, we expect both sides to be evenly matched and yet another seems to be on the cards.
