Cruzeiro Prediction – Can Cruzeiro break drought?

A 1-1 draw away at Chapecoense prolonged Cruzeiro’s wait to break their drought in the Brazilian top flight as that recent result extended their run of matches without a win in Serie A to 8 matches overall.

This sequence of results have dumped Cruzeiro into relegation danger as they now occupy a place in the bottom four of Serie A, sitting third from bottom in 18th place and 4 points adrift of Ceara and safety ahead of Wednesday night’s matches.

This 8-match sequence without a win includes 4 defeats and 4 draws; defeats to Gremio, Palmeiras, Flamengo and Goias have far outweighed the points they’ve picked up against Ceara, Internacional, Fluminense and Chapecoense in the draws they’ve been involved in.

Cruzeiro have also now gone 4 home matches without a win amidst an overall home record that stands at 4-4-4 10/12 in what has been a frustrating and inconsistent season to date for the home side.

Sao Paulo Prediction – Can Sao Paulo extend unbeaten run to 5 matches?

5th placed Sao Paulo are seemingly on the way up as the visitors extended their unbeaten run in the Brazilian top flight to 4 matches overall following their recent 1-0 home win against 4th placed Corinthians which has also seen Sao Paulo strengthen their bid for a top four finish.

The visitors are now level on points with 4th placed Corinthians and although they hit the road this Wednesday night, they’ll certainly fancy their chances of getting at least a point against a wobbling Cruzeiro outfit in this clash.

Sao Paulo have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 7 matches overall, which was a 1-0 loss at home to Goias, while they’re unbeaten in their last 3 matches away from home, picking up a 2-1 win at Botafogo before additional points at Flamengo and Bahia in 0-0 draws respectively.

An away record of 5-4-3 9/8 shows a reasonable return on their travels to date, and Sao Paulo will also be encouraged by the fact that they’re unbeaten in their last 4 meetings against Cruzeiro, winning 3 and drawing 1.


Key-Facts – Cruzeiro v Sao Paulo

  • Cruzeiro are without a win in their last 8 matches in Serie A
  • Sao Paulo have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 7 matches overall
  • Sao Paulo have won 3 and drawn 1 of the last 4 meetings against Cruzeiro


Betting Tips Verdict

Cruzeiro just can’t seem to break their current slump while Sao Paulo have plenty of incentive to grab the points here.
