About the Stadium:

Mineirão Stadium is a sports stadium located in the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte, capital of the state of Minas Gerais. This stadium is home to Cruzeiro and Atletico Mineiro, and also hosted the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Inaugurated in 1965, the Mineirão currently has a capacity for 60,000 spectators. It underwent a significant reduction in its capacity in order to comply with FIFA standards for soccer stadiums. Before that, the stadium had a capacity of more than 130,000 spectators. Its ground measures 115m x 76m.

Cruzeiro Esporte Clube plays in the Mineirão, disputing the Brasileirão, Brazilian Cup, state tournament and Libertadores or South American Cups.

It is named after José de Magalhães Pinto, who was governor of Minas Gerais in the 1960s. The stadium was reopened on April 24, 2013 with a match between the Brazilian national team and the Chilean national team, where both teams used players from the local midfield, ending the match with a 2:2 draw.

To make their home advantage count on the scoreboard

The Atlético Mineiro squad will receive Emelec in what will be the second leg of the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores, however, the time has come for them to make their home advantage count because they managed to get a draw in the first leg of the championship and must win at any cost if they want to dream of any possibility of advancing to the knockout stage of the tournament. Last match, Atlético Mineiro went to Emelec's home with a single mission: not to lose in the first leg and to return home with a lead or a draw. The Brazilian team succeeded and now it is a matter of making their home ground count to qualify for the next round of the Copa Libertadores.
