America Mineiro will aim to end their four-game winless run when they host Corinthians at the Estadio Raimundo Sampaio on Sunday.

The visitors, on the other hand, will aim to quickly move on from Thursday's 2-0 defeat against Atletico Goianiense in the Copa do Brasil.

After a two-year stint in the second tier, America Mineiro gained promotion into Serie A last season. However, they suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Atletico Paranaense in their opening league game.

In a closely fought contest Carlos Eduardo's 87th-minute strike was all that separated both sides at the Arena da Baixada Stadium.

The loss was followed by a goalless draw against Criciuma in the Copa do Brazil on Thursday.

Alexi Stival's men are now winless in their last four games, dating back to a 3-1 win over Cruzeiro on May 5.

After their opening successive Copa Sudamericana wins against Huancayo and River Plate de Asuncion, Corinthians have come crashing down to earth in recent outings.

Sylvinho's side opened their Serie A campaign with a 1-0 defeat against Atletico Goianiense before suffering another home loss to the same opponents in their Copa do Brasil first-leg clash on Thursday.

Ronald and Joao Paulo scored in the first half to hand the visitors a 2-0 first-leg win. Corinthians have now lost four of their last six outings and will aim to find their feet in the coming weeks.
