America-MG vs Sport Recife
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 20 July 2021
Kick-off at 0:00 UK/ 1:00 CET,
Venue: Estádio Raimundo Sampaio (Belo Horizonte).
Two bottom of the table teams América Mineiro and Sport Club do Recife look for overdue win when they lock horns on Tuesday.
After brilliant back-to-back wins at the start of the month, against Santos (2-0) and Bahia (4-3), America were brought down to earth with defeats in their latest two matches. These losses came to Fortaleza and Atletico Mineiro, both without scoring, pushed them to relegation waters.
On the other hand, Sport Recife are left with just 1 win in the campaign, and they are only 2 points behind their Tuesday’s hosts. The head-coach Umberto Louzer find a way to score goals, the drought has been the main reason for their miseries this far, the team sitting at the foot of scoring charts with 6 from 11 games played so far.
Bookies see America as favourites by a distance and the home win is priced at 1.85 as against away win at 5.20. Meantime a draw can be backed at 3.20 odd.

There is little difference on paper between the two teams, however America MG hold the aces in this game with an improved record at their own backyard. At the same time, Sport Recife offer little in the attack and are yet to win an away game this season.
Considering all the above, I will take the home win as the best bet of this Brazil Serie fixture.
