View all of the Cruzeiro v Oeste predictions, poll and stats below (plus the best game odds).
Cruzeiro, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-1 Serie B success against Sampaio Corrêa.
Their more recent scorelines reveal that huge efforts have been put in by the Cruzeiro defence. Celeste have been miserly, with the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their last six outings standing at 4. Previous results aside, we must now wait to see if the trend might be replicated here in this match.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Cruzeiro:
- are unbeaten in their last 3 home league matches.
- have not won at home in their last 2 league games.
Since tasting defeat last time out to Operário Ferroviário in Serie B competition, Oeste and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
The stats tell the story, and Oeste have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 9 goals overall. Defensively, Rubrão just haven’t been too solid at all.
Going into this one, Oeste have not won away from home in their last 4 matches in the league.
Team News: Cruzeiro
Looking at personnel, there is just a single fitness concern for the Cruzeiro gaffer to contend with due to a largely intact group. Dedé (Knee Injury) misses out.
Team News: Oeste
Due to a fully injury-free group available to choose from, Oeste boss Renan Freitas has no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match.
For this match, we think that Cruzeiro look likely to get a couple of goals in this one when they play Oeste, who could well find it tough getting goals.
We’re therefore anticipating a decent 2-0 winning margin for Cruzeiro when the full-time whistle blows.
