America were coming from consecutive wins against Avai and Atlético Goianense. As it stands, Juve are in 20th place, with 16 points from 21 matches, while America sit in 9th, with 27 points from 21.

America scored first, when Pedrinho gave America the lead, 8 minutes in to take them into the break 1-0 up. Both teams struggled to produce anything meaningful in the second half, leaving the final score at 1-0.
