Vitória vs Cruzeiro – Brasileirão A: Vitória and Cruzeiro meet on this duel between two teams with different needs…
Vitória needs to win at any cost, since they are being pressured by the teams on the relegation zone. They sit in 16th place and they are only out of the relegation zone due to goal differential.
On the other hand, Cruzeiro are just playing for pride, because they already ensured their Copa Libertadores’ spot and a higher finish in the league would only bring them financial benefits.
Being the worst team at home in this competition, Vitória need to somehow get over that statistic on this round, since they are as close as they can get to the relegation zone.
The team from Bahia needs to win because on the next round they will have a match against Ponte Preta, their main opponent on the fight to avoid relegation at the moment.
Even with that negative record, on their last home match they managed to get a convincing 3-1 win over 3rd place Palmeiras.
Having the 7th best attack in the league, they are in this situation much due to their defence,, which is the 3rd worst in this competition.
Vitória vs Cruzeiro – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Cruzeiro, ever since they won Copa do Brasil, have been very relaxed in the Serie A.
The team plays without many defensive worries and always attacking without many cautions, with a very powerful attack that has brought them a lot of goals. So much that they are the 8th best attack in the competition.
For this match the team will have an important absence which is the midfielder Thiago Neves, who is suspended. However, Arrascaeta and Alisson should return to the starting line-up.
With Vitória having to attack and score to win the match, and Cruzeiro playing without any pressure, being able to go on the attack without having to worry about defending,
