Cruzeiro take on the visitors Fluminense at “Estadio Mineirao” in the gameweek 34 of the Brazilian Serie A. The match will be played in Belo Horizonte on Monday, November 13th.
Cruzeiro are suffering from numerous injuries: in the upcoming battle at once seven footballers won’t be able to help their teammates at the pitch. As a result, the side managed to win only one out of five recent clashes while the other encounters ended in a single draw and three defeats including 0:2 loss to Flamengo RJ on the road in the previous round. Those failures divest “Raposa” of the chances to fight for the champion’s title as currently the club shares the fifth-sixth positions in the elite division standings with Botafogo RJ, having earned 51 points with 39-32 goal difference, being 14 points behind the leader and six points below the team sitting on the second place. Cruzeiro picked up 30 points with 21 goals for and 13 goals against in 16 home matches.

Fluminense have not been broken across four latest games, having gained six points in them after single triumph and three draws. With five rounds left till the end of the season, “Flu” occupies the 12th position in the Serie A table with 43 points taken and 44-44 goal difference. The side won’t be able to interfere into the battle for the medals, however, it shouldn’t relegate either. “Fluzao” conducted 16 games at away fields resulting in 19 points earned, 20 goals for and 22 goals against. The team defeated Botafogo RJ with 2:1 scoreline in its latest away fight, having broken its 11-clash no-win run on the road which had lasted since the 27th of July.
Both rivals face with the difficulties on the eve of the upcoming head-to-head, thus, I believe that it is going to be an equal and low scoring fight.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
