Fluminense vs Cruzeiro Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 22nd April 2018
Fluminense vs Cruzeiro – Brazilian Serie A: These are two teams that started off
with a loss on the current edition of the Brazilian Serie A, and they are feeling the pressure rising since very early.
Fluminense plays at home and Abel Braga already inclusively had to apologize for his reactions upon the fact that the team had been booed.
On the first round losing to Corinthians shouldn’t be seen as a very poor result.
However, it came after the elimination of the state championships and there isn’t a lot of room, on the Brazilian context, to see positives in consecutive losses.
The only thing that salvages this streak is the result obtained on the Copa Sudamericana. But, at home, they are playing at home.
They come into this match after a goalless draw at Universidad de Chile, on a match where they were only able to get 1 shot on goal in 14 attempts.
This is a survival match, that maintains the Mano Menezes’ team on the fight for qualification, after the opening on the Brazilian Serie A, in front of their home crowd, where they crumbled against Grêmio and lost 0-1.
That was a bad result, although the victory on the Campeonatio Mineiro offers them some credit.
The fans are still unhappy simply because of the fact that, in terms of playing dynamics, Cruzeiro is still far from what the arrival of Mano promised. Yeah, they need to win, but winning isn’t enough.
It’s on the logic of convincing that these two teams meet.
Fluminense left some interesting signs on the State Championship but the reality of the Brazilian Serie A is too demanding for Abel Braga’s side that has a lot of youth and a lot of players that are, still, only projects of great players.
Cruzeiro needs and will be amongst the set of teams that will occupy the top of the league table.
Fluminense vs Cruzeiro – Betting Tip and Prediction:
But on this initial stage of the season, with the Copa Libertadores’ group stage having an impact, it is acceptable to think that not all of them will finish as desired.
This might be one of them, with Fluminense taking advantage of some of the opponent’s fatigue to be able to get some points.
