America’s recent form has been, in a word, fitful. They have home advantage and will be considered the most likely winner, and at 10/11 with 888sport they’re certainly decent value. However, other possibilities need to be considered too, and BetBright have the Draw priced interestingly at 11/5; if you see this one ending in stalemate, those odds are worth a look. Taking more of a punt, you might want to check out Betway, who have 8/1 on Ceara to win a game with both teams getting on the scoresheet.

America Mineiro vs Ceara Betting Tips: Form Guide

Adilson Makes America Inconsistent Again

America Mineiro’s recent form makes it hard to judge what they’re going to do from one game to the next. A home win on Thursday night against Vasco da Gama (2-1) lifted them from 14th place to their current standing of 9th, with Gerson Magrao’s 80th-minute winner making the difference just moments after the visitors had equalised. That followed on from a 1-0 loss at Vitoria last weekend, which itself came on the back of a decent 2-2 draw with Flamengo.
In short, consistency is absent from the results Adilson Batista has been able to get from his side. Just when they put together a short unbeaten run, they lose their next game, but at least any defeat is unlikely to be followed by another – because that would be consistent, and America don’t do such things. A meandering 0-0 draw with Fluminense in mid-August, for example, was followed by a very professional 2-0 win over Sport Recife.

That tendency to avoid streaks – whether they be winning, losing or drawing – means that it would be brave to assume they’ll win this encounter, even if they are nine places above their visitors. America Mineiro vs Ceara betting tips for today are mostly in favour of the home side, but they’re entirely capable of pulling a shocking performance out of the bag and losing.

Ceara The Lazarus Of Serie A

When Brazilian football took a break at the end of June, Ceara were on five points from twelve games and bottom of Serie A by a distance. Just as the pundits were measuring them up for a season in the second tier, though, they found the form that had been AWOL since the start of the season, and after picking up 18 points from the last 11 games they’re still in the relegation zone but now within a couple of points of escape.

The last few games of August weren’t helpful to their hopes of staying up, that’s for sure. A draw at Vasco da Gama was swiftly followed by a 1-0 defeat at Sao Paulo – forgivable, considering the lofty position of the opponent – and then a less excusable 2-0 home loss to Bahia. However, just when the revival seemed to have withered and died on the vine, an excellent team effort saw Ceara pick up a win at high-flying Flamengo through a last-minute strike from Leandro Carvalho.
If that goal delighted the fans, the first one in their midweek game against Corinthians astonished them. Goalkeeper Everson’s 19th-minute free kick, pinged into the top corner, set the cellar-dwellers on course for a vital win. While only the most audacious America Mineiro vs Ceara match previews would back the ‘keeper to get on the scoresheet again today, his side have been something of a surprise package since July, so it’s wise not to rule anything out.

America Mineiro vs Ceara Preview: Recent Meetings

The previous meeting between these sides this season came before the mid-season break while Ceara were in the midst of their nightmare run. The nightmare grew deeper in the first half-hour of action at Estadio Castelo, as visiting defender Giovanni scored twice to propel his side into a 2-0 lead.

Ceara forward Elton nicked one back for the hosts before half time, but as the second half petered out and the clock ran into the depths of time added on the score stayed at 2-1. Then, on 93 minutes, a penalty was awarded to the strugglers, dispatched by Pio, and a point – which could end up being hugely valuable come the end of the season – was rescued from a losing position.

America Mineiro vs Ceara Prediction: Scrappy Home Win

It’s tempting to back Ceara for this match, given their amazing rebound from an atrocious start to the 2018 campaign. With a win here, they could leave the bottom four for the first time this season. Even a draw would be a positive result. Will they manage to get that result?

In truth, there is good reason to back any one of the three possible outcomes, but making a judgement call here we feel the best choice is to back America – they’re chaotic and unpredictable, but they’re still not a bad side, and with home advantage it feels like they should have enough to pick up a win over a Ceara side who, let’s not forget, were bottom of the table for a reason. Do we still hope Ceara pick up enough points over the rest of the season to avoid relegation? Sure, but they’ll need to find those elsewhere.
