Athletico Paranaense v Atletico Mineiro Match preview
Atletico Mineiro head into the second leg of the final on the back of a 4-0 thumping. Parnaense won the competition in 2019 and were hoping to do it again. However, the margin of the defeat in the first leg seems to suggest that it is a little too late for them. Unless they score five goals past the Campeonato Brasileiro winners Alberto Valentim’s side will go back home empty handed.
Mineiro on the other hand, are all set to clinch a remarkable domestic double. This has been a memorable year for the team that also reached the semifinals of the Copa Libertadores. With just one defeat in their last 11 outings across all competitions, Cuca would be eager to win his first ever Copa do Brasil trophy.
