This Saturday (30), Cruzeiro and Atlético-MG play the first game to decide who will be the 2024 Minas Gerais champion. The Betfair bookmaker brings the odds for the first game of the state decision.

Having achieved the best campaign in the group stage, Raposa has the advantage of playing the second match at home.

It will be the 26th time that the teams will decide the state of Minas.

Despite their rival having won 18 consecutive finals in the Campeonato Mineiro this season, the biggest winner when Galo and Raposa meet is Cabuloso, with six titles against their rival’s four.

Atlético-MG x Cruzeiro: odds for the first game of the decision

According to Betfair analysis, Atlético-MG is favorite to win the first match of the final. The team has a 52% chance (odds of 1.75) of winning next Saturday.

Cruzeiro has a 22% chance of winning at Arena MRV (odds of 4.25). While the draw appears with a 26% chance (odd of 3.5), according to the bookmaker.

Matheus Pereira, Cruzeiro midfielder and Raposa’s season leader in assists, spoke exclusively to Betfair about the decision. For the player, this positive record in the last finals does not guarantee that Cruzeiro will be the 2024 champion.

“We know that the opponent has its history in the competition, but we know even more the size of Cruzeiro and the strength of Cruzeiro when it reaches the finals. For us, it is clear that these good numbers from the club in recent decisions prove this, but the numbers do not enter the field”, pointed out the player.

“A good record is not a guarantee of a title, but we are confident, without a doubt, having grown throughout Mineiro. The training we have been doing for the finals motivates us and gives us clarity about what we have been building since the beginning of the season”, added the midfielder.
