View all of the América Mineiro v Red Bull Bragantino predictions, poll and stats below - plus the latest betting odds.
América Mineiro won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 0-1 Serie A defeat last time out to Red Bull Bragantino.
At least three goals per game have been seen in 5 of the past 6 meetings where América Mineiro have played. Opposing sides scored 11 of them in this period whereas América Mineiro bagged a total of 9. However, we must now wait to see whether that trend will continue on here in this match.
Red Bull Bragantino
Pedro Caixinha's Red Bull Bragantino have turned their attacks into goals 8 times in the course of their most recent 6 matches. The aggregate of goals that they have conceded during that same period equals 8.
Their previous form shows that Red Bull Bragantino:
- have not lost to América Mineiro in games played away from home for the previous 2 matches in the league.
- are without an away win for the past 2 league matches.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head meetings going back to 27/11/2021, there is nothing to separate the two clubs with América Mineiro winning 1 of those games, Red Bull Bragantino 1 and 4 being drawn in normal time.
Those games weren’t short on goals, either, with 22 overall at an average of 3.67 goals per match.
The previous league meeting featuring the two was Serie A match day 24 on 20/09/2023 and the score finished América Mineiro 0-1 Red Bull Bragantino.
That time, América Mineiro managed 31% possession and 4 attempts on goal with 1 on target.
Red Bull Bragantino got 10 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. Jadsom Silva (36') scored.
Team News: América Mineiro
The América Mineiro boss Fabián Bustos has a full complement, with no fitness concerns at all coming into this match owing to a completely healthy squad available to select from.
In all likelihood, Coelho look set to use a 3-5-2 system this time and select M. F. Cavichioli, Ricardo Silva, Iago Maidana, Eder, Mateus Henrique, Juninho, Breno Cascardo, Leandro Martinez, Rodriguinho, Felipe Azevedo and Gonzalo Mastriani.
Team News: Red Bull Bragantino
Red Bull Bragantino manager Pedro Caixinha has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Eduardo Santos (Ruptured knee ligament), Lucas Cunha (Ruptured knee ligament), Raul (Ruptured knee ligament) and Henry Mosquera (Knee Injury) will not be playing here.
It’s our belief that Leão da Zona could decide to play in a 4-3-3 formation, giving starts to Cleiton Schwengber, Jose Hurtado, Leonardo Realpe, L. Goncalves Da, Juninho Capixaba, Matheus Fernandes, Jadsom, Lucas Evangelista, Matheus Goncalves, Vitinho and Alerrandro.
We believe that Red Bull Bragantino and América Mineiro are probably both going to find scoring goals difficult here.
Let’s see what happens, but it could well be that we end up with scores level and two clean sheets. We therefore think that it’s going to be a close game with a 0-0 scoreline by the conclusion of this game.
