Brasileiro Serie A picks for Saturday, September 25
Before you tune in to Saturday's Brasileiro Serie A matchups, you need to see the Brazil Serie A picks from Brazilian-born soccer expert Igor Mello. A managing soccer editor for CBS Sports, Mello was born in Brazil and has covered the top flight of major European leagues, but has a soft spot for the Canarinho. An avid fan of Joga Bonito and the flair that comes with the league, Mello knows the Brazilian game inside and out.
For Sao Paulo vs. Atletico Mineiro, Mello is predicting Atletico Mineiro will secure the victory on the road. Atletico Mineiro has been red-hot in its most recent outings, going unbeaten in its last 11 fixtures across all competitions.
Atletico Mineiro features the league's stingiest defense, having given up just 13 goals in league play this season. Atletico Mineiro also features a potent offense, scoring 32 goals in 20 league games. Cuca's side has a plus-19 goal differential this season, the best in Brasileiro Serie A.
"The Tricolor Paulista has just one win over its past six games played throughout all competitions, while Hulk and Diego Costa's Atlético Mineiro are unbeaten in their last 11 games and are riding high atop the Brasileirão table," Mello told SportsLine.
