Atletico Mineiro will look to make it two successive league wins tonight, when entertaining Corinthians in Brazil's top division. After earning a gritty 1-0 win over Flamengo on Sunday evening, it's imperative Jorge Sampaoli's side continue their promising form.

Unbeaten since he took charge in March (six games, five wins), the well-known Argentine will stress the need for continuity here. Tonight's visitors had their opening league game postponed, having been pre-occupied with playoff tournament action last week.

A goalless draw with Palmeiras set up a finale against Palmeiras, one they lost on penalties. Can they bounce back with victory here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Atletico-MG vs Corinthians Betting Tips

Following some patient build-up play on the edge of the box, Guilherme Arana's hopeful cross was dispatched by Filipe Luis.

The former Atletico Madrid and Chelsea fullback accidentally turned the ball past Diego Alves while attempting to clear his lines. This was the first and only goal of their encounter, turning out to be a forgettable 35th birthday for Luis.

Flamengo had more shots (17), possession (62%), big chances missed (4) and hit the woodwork too. Yet. Sampaoli's men held firm and earned an early scalp against last year's runaway champions.

It was the type of display he'll use as a motivational tool long-term, considering their lowly 13th-placed finish last season. Corinthians by contrast, qualified for the Copa Libertadores but have been left hamstrung this summer.

Their best player, 22-year-old winger Pedrinho, joined Portuguese giants Benfica in an £18m switch at the start of July.

Assist leader Clayson departed for Bahia in January, while top goalscorer Mauro Boselli turned 35 in May and his finishing abilities are declining. It'll be interesting to see how they fare, both in the final third and defensively, after some sketchy recent form.

Atletico-MG vs Corinthians Correct Score Predictions

In 18 previous H2H meetings between the pair, it's quite evenly matched. Corinthians boast a slight advantage with seven victories to Atletico's six (five draws), but that could and probably will be equalled here.
