Stadium: Arena Conda (Chapeco)
Round 16 of the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A is to end with the match between Chapecoense and América MG. This is a direct competition. If Chapecoense lose, they are bound to drop out of Série A. In turn, América winning will move the away team up from the relegation zone.
Is there anything to say about the form of the team that lost their last 8 matches? They have a total of 4 points, six points behind Gremio who are 19th in the table. Cuiabá, who are 16th, just above the relegation zone, are 13 points ahead of Chapecoense. The Big Green’s home stats are the worst in the division, with only 1 points in 7 games and 3 goals scored during that time.
América Mineiro form
In contrast to Chapecoense, América Mineiro has been doing better lately. In the last three games this team scored 5 points, drew 1-1 with Gremio and Atlético GO, and beat Fluminense 1-0 at home. An extremely important win that could help the away team keep their place in the Brazilian elite.
Remarkably, the last five games of the team ended with Total Under 2.5. Again, if América Mineiro wins the upcoming match, they’ll catch up with Cuiabá on points, jumping over them in the standings due to more wins. In other words, América Mineiro has a good chance to get out of the relegation zone. Their home statistics are 18th in the division, +1=2-4, 7-14 goal difference.

Expert Betting Tips
