The club with the catchy name of America has so far completely failed this season, unlike last season where Mineiro played at a decent level. In fact, the Americans have failed to fight fully on several fronts, having very unsuccessfully defended their country’s honour in the past group stage of the Libertadores International Cup. They finished in last place, with just two points from six games played. And then there’s the Brazilian Cup, as the Rabbits will surely need a lot of strength to pull themselves out of the relegation zone in the current Serie A!
Botafogo Rio de Janeiro
Newly promoted Botafogo, on the other hand, are more or less all right now in the regular competition (10th current ranking). So, the visitors from sultry Rio de Janeiro can well afford to spread their playing resources around in the Brazilian Cup. In the positive tone of recent encounters with: the title-winning Internacional 3-2 (away), the famous São Paulo 1-1 and Fortaleza 3-1!
More recently, just over a month ago, America Mineiro and Botafogo Rio de Janeiro have already tipped each other, only under the auspices of Serie A, also in the rabbits’ ‘den’. Back then, there was no winner – a 1-1 draw. I expect a good game from the Lone Star side this time too, along with an X2 bet for good odds. Well, the home side are obviously not in the cup right now and need to get things going in the regular season. Imho. For full statistics and odds for the match, look at how to register with 1xbet.
