Cruzeiro vs Corinthians (By: Saconex)
Brazil Serie A
Cruzeiro (15) vs Corinthians (9)
Cruzeiro doesn’t look specially good at the moment and they are coming from 1-1 away vs Sao Paulo (8). That means they are without a league victory in 4 matches (0-1-3) and total record is 2-1-4 with 8-14 in goal difference. They also played midweek, ending 2-2 at home vs Fluminense (16) in Copa do Brasil, but winning on penalties. No important new missings.
Corinthians are coming from 2 straight victories in the league vs Athletico Paranaense (10) & Sao Paulo (8). Total record is 3-2-1 with 7-4 in goal difference. The guests also played in the Cup midweek, losing 1-0 vs Flamengo (4), so they are now out of that tournament. But overall, they have looked solid lately for sure. No important missings.
* These matches are often tight, 8 of last 10 meetings ended with a draw or 1 goal win
* Cruzeiro won this match by 1-0 last season, Corinthians won the reverse by 2-0
I expect this match to be tight but still exciting to follow, as it often is between these two. Both teams has quality and will probably be placed in the top half of the league at the end I think, but taking in mind how specially the hosts have looked lately, I can’t really understand why they are considered as such big favourites by the bookies. So overall I believe chances are good for this to end with a draw, both teams will be quite happy with that outcome I guess, so I give it a try.
