Flamengo vs America Mineiro Tips and Prediction
Flamengo failed to exact revenge in the first leg of their Copa do Brasil last-16 match against the same opponent on Thursday after losing 2-0 away at the reigning champions Atletico Mineiro last weekend.
Hulk and Ademir each scored a goal just before halftime to give the home team a two-goal lead. Even though Lazaro pulled a goal back for Flamengo in the 80th minute, Atletico held on to win and will carry a slim lead into the second leg next month.
Under new manager Dorival Junior, who has lost three of his first four games since taking over for a third stint at the club on June 10, a manager bounce has yet to happen.
Flamengo now turns their focus to the Brazilian Serie A, where they currently hold the 14th-place spot in the standings with 15 points, which is eight points and eight places lower than where they were at this time last year.
Though they are unbeaten in all 11 of their previous encounters with America Mineiro, with eight wins and three draws, the Scarlet-Black will be confident of getting back on the winning track on Saturday.
America Mineiro lost to basement club Fortaleza by a slim 1-0 margin last weekend after failing to score for the fourth game in a row.
The hosts earned all three points thanks to a close-range header from Yago Pikachu just before halftime, while the visitors suffered their sixth league loss of the season.
The team of Vagner Mancini has now gone six away games without a victory, and their most recent defeat has seen them drop to 16th in the Premier League standings, only one point and one position above the relegation zone.
The United States has only won one of its previous ten games across all leagues, and it may be difficult for them to turn things around on Saturday considering that they have dropped each of their last six meetings with Flamengo by an average score of 10-2.
In recent weeks, America Mineiro have had difficulty scoring goals, but against an unfocused Flamengo team on Saturday, they might have greater success.
However, the hosts have performed better at home, winning five of their last six matches at the Maracana. As a result, we anticipate them to earn all three points.
