Cruzeiro vs Corinthians – Brasileirao : Clash between recent cup winners and the aspiring Serie A’s champions…
After winning the important Brazilian cup title on a penalty shootou this week, Cruzeiro have to stop the celebrations and focus on the Serie A once again.
In the league, they’ve been getting good results, getting 4 wins and 1 draw on their last 5 matches.
But the trend is that we will most likely see Mano resting some players who are maybe tired due to the cup final, which might be a problem, because the team doesn’t have many quality options on the midfield area.
Raniel and Robinho might not recover in time and that would hurt the team here.
“Timão” had more time to prepare for this match than their opponents.
Leading the pack on the league table, they know that the other teams are motivated to recover the advantage they have and therefore Corinthians should look to win at any cost in order to maintain that gap.
Cruzeiro vs Corinthians – Betting Tip and Prediction:
At this point, the team should be deciding where they need to try harder in order to secure the title as early as possible.
Cruzeiro has been having excellent results but the team might be tired and Corinthians might take advantage of this opportunity.
According to their practices, Timão might play with a lighter formation here. The big question is on the attacking third, since Jô is injured and will miss this match.
It is a match that tends to be balanced and being able to get the positive handicap on a team who is better physically and, in theory, more prepared for the match, is a good option.
Therefore, we’ll go with Corinthians +0.25.
