America Mineiro will host Goias at Estadio Independencia on Sunday after their cup victory in the middle of the week finally put an end to a concerning slump.
In a closely contested Campeonato Brasileiro, victory would move the home team ahead of the visitors in the Serie A standings.

America Mineiro vs Goias Tips and Prediction
Last Saturday, America Mineiro failed to score for the sixth straight game as they suffered a crushing 3-0 loss to Flamengo after losing to lowly Fortaleza.
It was somewhat of a relief when Vagner Mancini’s team turned things around on Thursday in the first leg of their Copa do Brasil last-16 tie after they had struggled mightily recently, earning just one point from their five most recent league games.
Clear of the rematch against Botafogo later this month, America were three goals ahead after taking the lead as early as the sixth minute and were beyond reach by the hour mark.
Now that they have achieved success, they will try to use it as a launching pad to escape the Brasileiro relegation zone into which they have fallen due to goal differential.
Although the team from Belo Horizonte had lost their previous seven away games, they had won three of their previous six league games at Independencia.
Goias, who had previously drawn the first leg of their Copa do Brasil match against neighborhood rivals Atletico Goianiense, improved last Sunday when they defeated fellow Serie A down-and-outs Cuiaba at Estadio do Serrinha.
Pedro Raul’s goal in the 80th minute gave the Goiania team their fourth league victory of the year and helped them climb narrowly above the relegation zone.
Jair Ventura’s team had a five-game losing streak prior to last week’s victory, but morale will have been boosted ahead of their most recent away trip. They are also only four points off the top six, in a condensed portion of the table.
Verdao, one of many organizations anticipating the start of the transfer market this month, has already agreed to a loan agreement for Rio Ave full-back Savio, who has only accumulated seven away points to date.
They might also want to improve their alternatives up front, since Ventura’s team has only scored four goals in their previous six games and relies heavily on their leading scorer Raul up front.
A low-scoring contest is anticipated because it is fair to say that neither team is very prolific. America should win since they have only given up five goals at home this season and because of the obvious lack of firepower displayed by their opponents.
