Fluminense (10) vs Cruzeiro (7)
Fluminense are coming from their 1-2 win vs Coritiba (13) last, and they have only lost 1 match of their last 8 matches played. At home they are standing with 2-3-2 and a goal difference of 11-12. This is a team that both score and concede many goals, of their 14 league games this season 9 of them has ended with over 2,5 goals. They are missing Renato Chaves, Lucas Pierre, Junior Sornoza, Gum, Luis Fernando & Douglas to injuries here. Renato are suspended.
Cruzeiro are coming from some good performances as well, with the 1-1 match last time vs Flamengo (4) and 2 straight wins before that against Atletico PR (16) & Palmeiras (5). It is pretty clear that this club is hungry for success in the league again, after some disappointing seasons after they won it all in 2014. They are standing with 2-1-4 away record this season. Rafael Sobis are suspended here, will also miss Dede, De Arrascaeta, Judivan, Daniel, Manoel, Robinho & Rafinha.
Last match between the two sides was back in November 2016, Cruzeiro won this 4-2 at home. 4 of last 7 meetings ended with over 2,5 goals total, 3 of those 4 ended with over 3 goals total. I think we can expect to see goals in this match again. Both teams are in decent form and their major strength is in attack. The value we get on over 3 goals asian line, is absolutely great imo.
