Vasco vs América MG – Brazilian Serie A: Vasco da Gama hosts América Mineiro at
São Januário this Saturday, on a match of the Brazilian Serie A.
Vasco is on a deep crisis at this stage of the season. And that is mainly due to their terrible campaign on the Copa Libertadores.
Everyone knew that Vasco would struggle in the group of death of the competition, but so many heavy losses suffered have caused their fans to riot, who have inclusively invaded the team’s practice this past Friday.
On the Brazilian Serie A, the situation and their performances weren’t even that bad. They have won against Galo and have drawn with Chapecoense.
The match against Santos ended up being postponed and in the Copa do Brasil, they will make their debut next week against Bahia on the 8th finals.

América Mineiro is surprising on this start of the Brazilian Serie A. The team occupies the 3rd place of the competition with 6 points conquered.
For a team that is returning from the Serie B and with an obviously shorter roster than most other teams, this is an exciting start, at least when we think about avoiding relegation.
Are Vasco favourites? Maybe. But due to their poor moment of form, and the pressure there is on the team and even the technical quality of the team, I expect this match to be closer than the odds suggest.
Vasco vs América MG – Betting Tip and Prediction:
América Mineiro is an organized and annoying team, and they can cause Vasco some problems in Rio, just like they did to Flamengo.
Therefore, I think that the handicaps and goals in favour of the visitors might be a good option here.
