Corinthians vs Cruzeiro
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 15th June 2017
Kick off at 01:45 UK/ 02:45 CET
Venue: Arena Corinthians.
Corinthians are the main candidates for the crown in this term of Serie A if we are to judge by the form at the start of the season.
Timao have been enjoying an ominous form over the last couple of weeks and they are targeting their sixth straight victory this Wednesday when they host Cruzeiro in one of the most interesting clashes of the round.
Fabio Carille can be thrilled with his team’s attacking form. Jo, Clayton & company have been lethal in the final third as the team notched as many as eight goals in last two wins over Vasco da Gama and Sao Paulo.
Clayton was even rested in the Sunday’s win over Sao Paulo and we expect him to shine on Wednesday. He is our outside bet for the anytime goalscorer at the odds of 9/5.
Mano Menezes does not have such weapons up front, but Cruzeiro’s main strength lies at the back.
The Foxes have been very tough to break down since the very start of the season and they will come into the game at Arena Corinthians in high spirits after snatching a 2-0 win over Atletico GO on Sunday.
Corinthians vs Cruzeiro: Head to head
The head to head clashes from the recent history offered plenty of goals.
Each of the last four meetings between the two sides saw both teams netting as Cruzeiro bagged seven goals in consecutive wins in Copa do Brasil and Serie A last year.
Corinthians vs Cruzeiro: Prediction
Corinthians have been just too good lately and we can’t see even the rock-solid defense of Cruzeiro’s stopping them.
The 8/11 odds offered by the bookies for the home win have value and are certainly worth taking in a high-stake single.
