Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Sampaio Corrêa v Cruzeiro game (including the best match odds).
Sampaio Corrêa will be looking for an improved result here following a 2-1 Serie B defeat in their last game at the hands of CSA.
Sampaio Corrêa have been quite ineffective in attack in recent times. Their sum of goals equals just 3 vs opponents over their last 6 matches. In those meetings, Bolívia Querida have also seen the tally of goals scored against them come to 8. We will find out whether or not that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
Coming into this meeting, Sampaio Corrêa are without a win at home for the past 2 league games.
In their previous game, Cruzeiro drew 0-0 in the Serie B match with Cuiabá.
A run of accomplished displays from the Cruzeiro defence has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 4 from their last 6 outings in total. In that period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 4.
Going into this contest, Cruzeiro are without an away win for the past 2 matches in the league.
Team News: Sampaio Corrêa
Sampaio Corrêa boss Leo Condé doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game owing to a fully healthy squad ready to go. Pimentinha will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Cruzeiro
In an otherwise available group, there’s just the one fitness issue for the Cruzeiro gaffer to be concerned with. Dedé (Knee Injury) misses out for this game. Manoel cannot play in this game through suspension.
In our view, Sampaio Corrêa will have their work cut out to hit the back of the net against this Cruzeiro outfit who should manage to score & go ahead.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 winning score for Cruzeiro at the end of this one.
It should be a good one.
