America Mineiro and Barcelona to Draw

While America Mineiro is playing in the regional Campeonato Mineiro as they wait for Serie A to begin, Barcelona already played and won three matches in their domestic championship.

So, the guests are in true competitive form and they are the better team on paper since they did reach Copa Libertadores semi-finals last season. But it’s never wise to bet against Brazilian teams, especially at home, so our prediction for this game is a draw.

America Mineiro and Barcelona to Draw at Half Time

Since we expect this game to end in a draw, we also expect the teams to be tied at half time. After all, that is the most common half-time outcome for matches ending in draws.

In addition to this, America Mineiro drew at half time in three of their last five games in all competitions, while the same thing happened in four of the last five Barcelona games across the board.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Neither of these two teams is known for scoring many goals and since we expect a close game, under 2.5 total goals also sounds like a reasonable outcome.

After all, America Mineiro has went under 2.5 total goals in nine of their last ten games across the board, while Barcelona did the same in six of their seven games since they started the season in all competitions.

America Mineiro vs Barcelona preview: Can America pull of an upset?

America Mineiro

The club that played in the second-tier Brazilian league, Serie B, just two seasons ago, managed to get a spot in the Copa Libertadores qualifiers last season despite being a newly-promoted team in Serie A. America Mineiro, like any Brazilian team, should not be underestimated, although they are the outsiders in the matchup with against Barcelona.


Although Barcelona needed to go through two rounds of qualifiers for Copa Libertadores already, they are still a team that reached the semi-finals of the last season’s edition of the same competition. Furthermore, the team enters the first leg against America Mineiro in great form since they started the new season in their domestic championship with all four wins.
