The crowd generally plays a big role for the league newcomers who have been enjoying stellar form in their own backyard so far in the season in Serie A. Enderson Moreira generally has reasons to be thrilled with the start of the campaign as his men sit above their much more popular local rivals in 10th place with 13 points from the opening 9 rounds. As many as 12 of these 13 came in home matches as Coelho won four of last five league outings at Estadio Raimundo Sampaio.

América Mineiro vs Atlético Mineiro: Head-to-head

Whilst the hosts come into the game as the form favourites, it’s the head to head stats which completely fancies Atletico Mineiro here.

Galo won as many as six straight matches against America Mineiro including each of three H2H clashes in this term of Campeonato Mineiro 1 back in February and March this year.

Coelho scored just one goal in these six defeats.

América Mineiro vs Atlético Mineiro: Predictions

The horrendous thread in derbies with Atletico may well come to an end this Thursday for the hosts. Whereas Galo made a promising start to the new season under Thiago Larghi, their form has hit a stumbling block over the last couple of weeks. The visitors took only a single out of nine possible points in last three league games and they won only one of last five matches in all competitions having suffered early exits in both Copa do Brasil and Copa Sudamericana.

It seems to be now or never for America Mineiro who have been averaging two goals per game in home matches so far in the season. You can back the host to net two or more goals at the sky-high 4.00 odds. It’s a must-take pick if we know that Galo shipped as many as six goals in last two league ties against Sport Recife and Chapecoense.
