This Wednesday, July 12, 2017 (3:30 PM Pacific) Atletico Mineiro will host Santos at the Estadio Independencia for a match up in week 13 of the Brasileirao. Both teams are still far from first-place Corinthians but are still competing for a Copa Libertadores spot.
Mineiro is currently in ninth with 17 points, only a point out of a Copa Libertadores spot and only three points out of fourth place for a direct Copa Libertadores spot. The team from Belo Horizonte is undefeated in its last six games in league play and will look to continue this run of form. Former Brazilian internationals Fred and Robinho are among the more enticing players on Mineiro, Fred currently in good form, netting a brace against Cruzeiro on July 2. The game will not be easy for the home side but the home-field advantage may come in handy against a worthy adversary in Santos.
Santos is currently in a direct Copa Libertadores spot in fourth place with 20 points but is still 12 points out of first place Corinthians. The eight-time champions are coming off a solid 3-2 win over Sao Paulo, where a hat-trick by the Colombian Forward Jonathan Copete helped Santos get the three points. Copete has been an important player all season for Peixe and will be one of the main players to look out for in this game. The clash should be a hard-fought duel between two prominent sides in the Brasileirao and the encounter should prove to be an exciting one at the Estadio Independencia.
