The players from Belo Horizonte beat Palmeiras at home last autumn. It doesn’t look like America Mineiro are going to repeat their success. The last home game of Mancini’s squad ended in their resounding defeat to a feverish Bragantino. On the one hand, the home side could do well to rehabilitate themselves in front of their fans. On the other hand, the visiting team are very convincing on home soil and won’t give up points for nothing.
Palmeiras broke their winless streak and they have to take that into consideration. Nevertheless, the home win over Cuiabá left an unpleasant residue, with the current visitors scoring only once despite plenty of chances. There’s no arguing that Ferreira can’t rely on a few core players, which a priori hurts his squad’s performance. For the best away team in Serie A, the visitors have been too often misfiring on foreign soil.
The home team have not scored more than one goal in their last 8 encounters. In 2/3 of their home games, the Amerika Mineiro players have celebrated a victory. The average performance in Belo Horizonte is just 2.1 goals per 90 minutes on average.
“Palmeiras still lead the league in away games. Except that the visitors have won 1\4 of their last games.
Last season, the teams exchanged home victories with the same score of 2-1.
America Mineiro vs Palmeiras. Odds cf. 1,85
Against the background of personnel problems, Palmeiras began to have difficulties with the result. Now it’s Avaya that will take away the points, now it’s Cuiaba that will take down Ferreira’s squad at home. At that rate, the visitors will lose the lead in the overall standings. It is also worth remembering that Palmeiras have not won in Belo Horizonte since 2016.
I believe that the visiting team will fail to win this time as well. However, the overall total market proposition is much more interesting. “America Mineiro” plays purely defensively at home, and the favourite is clearly not in a position to deliver productive football at the moment.
