America Mineiro set to start their top-flight campaign with a home win
------------------------------------------
TEAM NEWS
America Mineiro have signed a good pair of strikers in the form of Rafael Moura from Atletico Mineiro and Aylon from Internacional, but they have no big news regarding their squad for their opening match of the season.
 
Sport Recife have brought in defensive midfielder Fellipe Bastos from Corinthians and centre back Leo Ortiz from Internacional in an attempt to improve their defence. They have several notable absences due to injury for their first league match, including Rithely, Leandro Pereira, Durval and Marlone.

MATCH PREVIEW
MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
 
America Mineiro won the second division title last year and have gathered some well-known players in the form of Rafael Moura, Marquinhos, Wesley and Luan to try to stay up this season. It will be a tough challenge given the overall quality of their squad, but if they continue with the same positive playing style as in last year’s promotion campaign, they surely will be capable of securing some important wins against fragile opponents such as this weekend’s visitors.
 
Sport Recife, who finished only two points above the drop zone and were almost relegated last season, have not changed much of their squad over the break and are suffering with the same old problems. They were knocked out of the Campeonato Pernambucano by forth-tier side Central in the semi-finals last month and have a lengthy injury list. I’m not sure they can book any positive result while those players are ruled out.
 
Given the above, I can see America Mineiro starting off their league campaign on a win by claiming the three points in front of their own crowd this Sunday.  
 
SECOND PREDICTION: FIRST TEAM TO SCORE – AMERICA MINEIRO
 
America Mineiro have already scored before half time 12 times this season and as Sport Recife will be missing their main defender and captain Durval, I can see the hosts opening the scoreline here.
 
HEAD TO HEAD
 
There have been two draws and three America Mineiro wins over Sport Recife in their last five league encounters. The last Sport win over the Minas Gerais side was in 2010 when the teams met in Brazil’s second tier.
