Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: América Mineiro win
Odds: 3/4 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on what has been a stunning purple patch, América Mineiro will welcome Atlético Goianiense to the Arena Independência on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while América Mineiro might have only made the step up from Serie B last season, Coelho have really shocked many across the top-flight so far this year. Putting in another hugely impressive display on home soil over the weekend, they stormed their way to a deserved 3-1 win against Grêmio and the mood in their camp should be at a red-hot high. With some in their camp even dreaming of mounting a late top-six charge, Head Coach Marquinhos Santos has seen his side land back-to-back Serie A victories over the past week. Smelling a golden chance to lay down another marker on Wednesday night, América Mineiro have now remarkably won four of their last five top-flight outings. In fact, it should also be noted, the midweek hosts have lost just one of their previous six contests, a run that stems back to October 14th.
As for the visitors, while América Mineiro might be riding a real wave, the same cannot be said for a downbeat Atlético Goianiense side. Last seen over the weekend putting in another toothless display, interim boss Eduardo Souza saw his side have to settle for a 0-0 stalemate against Santos on home soil. Slipping out of the top-12 and with the feel of a squad seeking a boost, the Dragons have largely endured a nightmare November run. Suffering three straight defeats earlier in the month and mustering just a single point from any of their last four Serie A fixtures on the spin, América Mineiro have also continued to struggle with their displays in the final third. It should be noted, the Goiás-based outfit have now failed to bag a single strike on their four-match winless run. Given the recent gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a home victory in midweek.
Bet: América Mineiro 3/4 to beat Atlético Goianiense in Wednesday’s Brazil Serie A battle @ 888sport
