Cruzeiro vs Chapecoense AF
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 26th May 2019
Kick-off at 23.00 UK/ 00.00 CET
Venue: Mineirão (Belo Horizonte).

Cruzeiro is dangerously close to the relegation zone, but they do have this home game to look forward to. They have won all their home ties so far but lost all of their games on the road.

Defense-wise, the team has not impressed at all – along with the dead-last Vasco, Cruzeiro conceded the most goals in the competition.

Chapecoense has had a rough outing this season. The team has won just a single game so far and lost all of their matches away from home.

Considering they are going against a team that boasts of a 100% winning record at home, Chapecoense is really on the back-foot.
