Match Preview : America Mineiro vs Colo-Colo

America Mineiro

America Mineiro host Colo-Colo in the second leg of the Copa Sudamericana at the Estadio Raimundo Sampaio on Wednesday – as the visitors enter this matchup with a 2-1 first leg lead to their name. Two second half goals by Leonardo Gil struck a dagger into the hearts of the America faithful, however a late consolation by Alexander Egea has still kept the Brazilian outfit in the competition.

America reserved their better group stage performances for their home turf, where they netted eight times in three games, winning twice. Vagner Mancini’s side currently sit bottom of the Serie A table after 14 matches – conceding more goals than any other side in the league. However, their ability to find the back of the net gives the home side hope of turning the tie around, even if that optimism diminishes due to their inability to keep clean sheets. With just a single clean sheet in their previous 9 matches in all competitions, the Brazilian side will be laying all their hopes on the attack that has scored in each of their last 12 matches in all competitions.

Colo-Colo

The visitors Colo-Colo on the other hand will be disappointed with the late goal conceded in the first leg, as a two goal lead would have put them in a much better position ahead of Wednesday. The Chilean side sit comfortably at 6th in the Chilean Premier Division – still hanging tight with respect to the title challenge. Gustavo Quintero’s side were eliminated from the Copa Libertadores, having ended third in their group, suggesting they should be superior to their opponents.

Although Colo-Colo are on a four-match unbeaten streak, they are still winless in each of their last 6 away matches in all competitions. Los Albos also failed to win any away game in the Libertadores group phase, perhaps explaining why they exited that competition early and cannot afford to continue that winless road run in the continent. Despite the dreadful away form, Gustavo Quintero’s side will still be the bookies’ favorite to go ahead in the tie, as they come into this clash with momentum – which should be enough to secure a spot in the round of 16.
