América-MG vs Corintians, Monday’s match to close the sixth round of the Brazilian Series B Championship.
Despair hit the “Rabbit”. Although the Brasileirão is still on the sixth round, this can be seen from the pattern of signings announced for the rest of the season.
The Minas Gerais club signed a contract with veteran midfielder and left-back Michel Bastos. The athlete, who has had a few good moments in his career, including passing through clubs overseas, has only collected failures recently.
At Palmeiras, São Paulo and Sport, he was dismissed even before the end of the contract and left the clubs at the request of the fans, not only with his poor technical performance, but also his lack of disposition.
The beginning of América-MG in the dispute of the Brazilian Series B Championship, soon after the demotion of Series A, in fact, is worrisome.
The team, which dismissed coach Givanildo Oliveira after two defeats in the opening rounds, putting Maurício Barbieri in the spot, is in the last place of the tournament with only one point won.
In the last two rounds, they produced very little and suffered defeats. The first, at home, against the Sport, they lost inexplicably. They were winning by 1 to 0 until the 45 minutes of the final half. They conceded two goals in the second half. The second was against Brazil de Pelotas, who until then had not scored a goal in the tournament.
“Coxa” gained some relief by beating Cuiabá Esporte 2-1 at home on Matchday 5, breaking the series of three games without a win.
They reached the level of eight points (two wins, two draws and a loss). It was not enough for the team to return to the G4, but enough to stay close to the elite squad of the Second Division of the Brasileirão.
The meeting marked the debut of the midfielder Matheus Sales under the command of coach Umberto Louzer. He entered the field in the 16 minutes of the final half and had his performance praised.
It may even be related among the starters in the game in Belo Horizonte. If this happens, it offers the technician two possibilities. If the coach wants to maintain the tactical standard, he will have to choose between João Vitor and Vitor Carvalho to leave the team.
However, there is a chance to strengthen the scoring sector, especially as it is an out-of-home confrontation. In that case, it would be Giovanni, who has been widely criticized by fans. Against Cuiabá, he left in the second half. Juan Alano was the replacement.
The prognostic is a win by América-MG in the match of Monday at the conclusion of the sixth round of the Brazilian Championship of the Series B ends up being a good option.
