Atletico Mineiro vs America Mineiro
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 14 October 2018
Kick-Off at 23:00 UK / 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Raimundo Sampaio (Belo Horizonte).

It’s all set for the local Mineiro derby between Atletico and America on Sunday evening at Estadio Raimundo Sampaio. Galo come into it as heavy favourites, bit such role should be reduced due to the fact they won’t quite have the home court advantage here given the “nominal visitors” also play their matches at Estadio Raimundo Sampaio.

The home court advantage would play a massive role here knowing Coelho have really been struggling with the form on travels so far in the season. America won 2, drew 2 and lost as many as 10 of 14 away matches in Serie A.

Nevertheless, their boss Adilson Batista has plenty of other things to worry about coming into the local Minas Gerais derby. His men failed to score more than a single goal in last five league games. They lost two and drew three en route, a streak which includes a demolishing 4-0 defeat to Atletico Paranaense last Saturday.

Atletico Mineiro vs America Mineiro: Head-to-head

The rivalry dates back to 1913 when the two sides first met each other.

Since Cruzeiro grew in popularity in the meantime, this clash has not been the biggest the city has to offer, but it certainly gained a new dimension when America Mineiro returned to the top flight football this season.

Atletico completely dominated the match-up in recent years.

Galo won all of last seven encounters with America netting three or more goals on four occasions in last six meetings with Coelho.

Atletico Mineiro vs America Mineiro: Prediction

Atletico Mineiro are on the best way to secure the top-six finish and Copa Libertadores qualifications for next season. They are currently six points clear off Santos in seventh place and a win here would get them closer to the goal.

The visitors are in a much more complicated situation. Coelho are desperate for points being near to the drop zone. However, their recent spell of form does not quite promise success here, especially if we know how dominant Atletico have been in front of the home fans recently.

Galo won four and drew one of last five games at Estadio Raimundo Sampaio. As they won seven consecutive H2H meetings with America Mineiro, the home win has to be the logical number one betting option.
