Atletico MG team news and form: Battaglia is out

Team star Rodrigo Battaglia saw the red in last week’s match against Bragantino in the 99th minute of the game. This is a huge blow to coach Milito’s hopes of success on the 18th, and we are sure the absence of one of his key players will hurt his chances of getting the right result.

The 36-year-old veteran has done beautifully since the start of the season. As a result, Palmeiras have one of the most impressive defensive records in the league. The visitors conceded only four goals this season, which is a huge boost to our Atletico MG vs Palmeiras predictions.
