Racing vs Cruzeiro – Copa Libertadores: The Argentinian team comes into this edition of the Copa Libertadores very moralized.
The team was able to string together a string of 4 wins on the Superliga and they will definitely want to keep it up.

The group that they are inserted on, in my opinion, is one of the toughest ones of this competition, which means this match can be very decisive.
Dropping points at home won’t be good if Racing wants to advance onto the next stage, and that scenario was surely already described by their manager.

Cruzeiro invested a lot to try and dominate their continent on this 2018 season. Experienced and well-known players, with a lot of tactical knowledge was the board’s commitment to try and do well on the Copa Libertadores this year.
On their state championship, the team hasn’t lost yet, but they are yet to face very tough opponents as well. An aspect that really caught my eye was the fact that the team has only conceded 1 goal this year.
We’ll see if their defensive system is really good now, on this first real test, or if those statistics are only a result of the weak tactical power of the teams they’ve faced so far.
Racing vs Cruzeiro – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This is definitely a Brazil vs Argentina derby guys, who will always have an extra taste to it. And these are two teams that I really like.
Racing, in my opinion, has to be favoured here, because they are playing on a high level, with more competitive teams at this start of the year than Cruzeiro.
The team from Minas Gerais will have to try and impose their strong marking, cancelling out their opponents’ main strengths to, who knows, get the desired away goal on the counter-attack.
Racing has the characteristic of smothering their opponents in the initial minutes and adding that to the fact that the team has a powerful attack, we’ll rely on the Argentinian team to be able to score still in the first 45 minutes of this match.
