América MG - Criciúma:
The time has come for both teams to leave relegation zone behind.
It takes place at 9 pm:
Belo Horizonte, MG, the ranking is a liar, America MG is experiencing a great moment of form and is getting closer to safety, placed in 12th place with 26 points, they started last in the standings up to climb positions.
The team has not lost since 07/27, about a month and a half, when they lost at home to Atletico Goianiense 0-1.
Now in your own stadium in the
The 22nd round of Brasilerao B, in Independência stadium, faces Criciuma, it is a direct confrontation for survival.
Coelho is in 12th place, with 26 points, four more than Figueirense, first team in the relegation zone.
Criciúma has three points less, with 23, at 15th.
With little time between games, America had only one training session held on Monday.
Midfielder Juan Boselli is back from disqualification and will play.
The only absence for the first time of the year will be that of defender Paulào (Defender 21/1), he is disqualified because of his third yellow card, an important absence in the defense department, Pedrao and Lucas Kal are vying for a place as a holder.
Midfielder Ze Ricardo, with ankle pain, is a doubt for this match.
In the last game, he was replaced by Flávio in the current game.
Tigre has just changed coach, Waguinho Dias is driving, but despite this things are not going so well, the team fails to win, comes from two consecutive draws, but they won the direct match against Oeste for 3-1 and yes they are taken out of the relegation zone, drawing two consecutive games.
The Waguinho Dias coach
confirmed the same formation of the draw with Ponte Preta.
There will be no absences due to suspension or injury, the Italian coach will have his best players.
Direct clash for not relegation, I go with America MG, which must confirm its excellent moment, Criciuma is still experiencing great difficulties, while the shape of America is now consolidated for two months, I believe that Mineiro's team can have better ambitions from salvation, playing in the Indepedencia stadium will be very important to get another very important victory to continue his climb.
For these reasons I go with victory of America Mineiro.
