America Mineiro hosts Internacional in the second leg of the Copa do Brasil quarterfinals. The match will be played on Thursday, November 19th at Estádio Raimundo Sampaio (Belo Horizonte)
The Rabbits have been the Brazilian football elevator in recent years. They promoted to Serie A twice in a row and instantly returned to a lower division. But this system failed in 2019, when America Mineiro was limited to only 5th place. The team obviously wanted to fix this failure, and in general, it moved along the tournament distance more or less confidently. In October, the Rabbits had a 6-match winning streak, including the cup game. But having beaten Corinthians in the Cup, they suddenly slowed down - a defeat and three draws in the next five matches. Truth be told, just the 1-0 away victory over the current opponent was the only exception.

Despite the popularity and ambitions, Internacional has won something only at the state level this decade. For example, the last draw of Brasileirao ended in a relatively modest 7th place. The situation could be corrected by this season, which had every chance of becoming a breakthrough time. The team calmly progressed from the group in Copa Libertadores, looked confident in the cup, and was the leader in Serie A. But then the coach, Eduardo Coude, was called to Spain to save Celta. Not surprisingly, the quick departure of the mentor affected the team. In the championship, the recently leading Internacional gained only two points in the last four rounds. Having dealt with Atletico Goianiense in the cup (twice 2-1), the Reds managed to lose to a representative of a lower division at home. It is good that the regulations give an opportunity to fix everything, and the score, to put it mildly, does not seem hopeless.
The visitors from Porto Alegre are stronger, and they must have been angry after the last failure. We expect that the visitors will take their toll in the return match - we bet on the victory of Internacional.
Prediction for the match: Internacional to win
