Corinthians vs Cruzeiro – Copa do Brasil : Corinthians and Cruzeiro face off at the Arena Corinthians
On the 2nd leg of the final of the Copa do Brasil on October 17th of 2018.
This is the 2nd encounter between the two teams. On the first one, Cruzeiro came out on top by 1-0 at home.
Now, Corinthians needs to win by at least 2 goals to clinch the title, but they are shaking after 4 consecutive matches where they were unable to score a single goal, also getting 3 losses during that period.
On their last 5 matches, they have only gotten 1 victory, 1 draw and 3 losses, beating Flamengo and losing to Cruzeiro in the Copa do Brasil, besides drawing with América-MG and losing to Flamengo and Santos in the Brazilian Serie A.
On the last 10 matches at home, they have gotten 5 victories, 3 draws and 2 losses, scoring 10 goals and conceding 9. Their main player is the attacker Ángel Romero, who has scored 3 goals already on their cup campaign so far.
Meanwhile, Cruzeiro tries to manage their small advantage conquered in the first duel, but that can make a big difference on this encounter.
Mano Menezes’ team recorded 1 victory, 2 draws and 2 losses on their last 5 matches, where besides beating this same Corinthians, they have also drawn with Palmeiras and Boca Juniors, and have lost to Vasco da Gama and Palmeiras.
On the last 10 matches away from home, they have gotten 2 victories, 4 draws and 4 losses, scoring 7 goals and conceding 11, having the midfielder Thiago Neves as their main player, who has already scored 2 goals on the competition so far, besides some great displays.
Corinthians vs Cruzeiro – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On the first match, the match was projected to be a low-scoring affair.
But now, I think we can have a change in trends. That’s because Corinthians needs to win, and they will expose themselves to Cruzeiro’s counter-attack that is always lethal.
Therefore, expecting a match with goals is not absurd.
