Bragantino vs America MG
Estádio Nabi Abi Chedid (Bragança Paulista), Brazil
After 1:1 in the first match when America MG were host, Bragantino now have great chance in front of their fans to proceed to the quarter finals of Copa Sudamericana. Bragantino are much better team, and they showed it in the first match despite the fact that the end result was 1:1, they were dominating the match. America MG are in big crisis and recently they are playing desperately especially as visitor.Receive Your Welcome Bonus!
Bragantino lost in Copa Brazil a few days ago and we will see if that defeat has some impact on the team that otherwise is playing very well. In the league, they are 5th with 31 points, the same as the 2nd placed team. In the last 5 matches in all competitions, they have 2 wins, 2 defeats, and a draw. Bragantino still have a long list of missing players like Lucas Cunha, Eduardo Santos, Eric Ramires… However, this team looks great and recently are few levels better than America MG, so at home they should control the match and win confidently.
America MG somehow managed to avoid defeat in the first match, but it’s obvious that this team needs many changes in order to improve their results. In the league, they are in last place with only 10 points in 17 matches. They will try to do the impossible here, but I think that they are focusing more on the domestic league and lifting up the form and team spirit. In the last 5 matches, they have a win, two draws and two defeats. America MG’s manager Mancini often changes the starting lineup and I expect that he will try with some chances to surprise the host.

Bragantino are clear favorite in this match between two Brazilian teams.
