The captain of the Brazil team, Atlético, wants to maintain the momentum in another step towards the title he has been dreaming of. The team comes from victories over Grêmio (2-1) and América-MG (1-0), both at home.
Rooster’s strength as a home team is one of the foundations of the club’s competition. Mineirao has 12 consecutive wins, a mark equal to the record in the consecutive points era. Now, the club is chasing an unprecedented streak of 13 consecutive home wins.
On the other hand, the Corinthians have an excellent streak of results at home, beating Chapecoense and Fortaleza in the final stage of matches with the unconditional support of their loyal fans. Wednesday’s match will be a stage test for Team Sylvinho, convinced they can fight for the G-4 in the competition.
