America Mineiro vs Sao Paulo Preview and Predictions

América Mineiro vs Sao Paulo
Brazil Serie A
Date: Sunday, 27 May 2018
Kick-Off at 23:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Raimundo Sampaio (Belo Horizonte)

Sao Paulo travel to Estadio Raimundo Sampaio for their Matchday 7 clash on the back of a nine-game unbeaten streak across competitions, including a great 1-0 home win over Santos last week. They now hope to build on the success but we have seen more troubles bagging points on the road –as Diego Aguirre’s men earned just four draws on their last four trips.

America MG, on the other hand, come into the match just days after their Copa do Brazil clash at Palmeiras – looking to overturn the advantage from the first leg and build on a narrow 1-0 win over Botafogo earned in Belo Horizonte.

They have been a tough side to beat at this ground and we’ve seen them bag three wins in four home games, regularly netting goals and putting on solid defensive displays. Sao Paulo have failed to find the net in two of their last four trips and the home side will now hope they can capitalize on such woes and hold them off once again.

América Mineiro vs Sao Paulo: Head-to-head

America MG have beaten their rivals 1-0 in their last clash here, back in October 2016.

This was their only win in seven head-to-head clashes, including a loss and a draw in front of the home crowd seen beforehand.

However, we are used to very exciting games with goals between the sides and this should prove another such occasion.

América Mineiro vs Sao Paulo: Prediction

We will now back Sao Paulo to build on such head-to-head records and put on another tough challenge away from home. We’ll thus go for their fifth consecutive Draw on the road, which can be backed at a very good-looking 3.20.

We have indeed seen them put on such displays on the road but they could have to outgun the home side, who have been regularly netting goals, in order to snatch a point. We’ll also go for a YES on Both teams to score at 1.77 which has also attracted many value seekers already!
