Cruzeiro vs Chapecoense
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 21 October 2018
Kick-Off at 23:00 UK
Venue: Mineirão (Belo Horizonte).
The black beast will prey on a weary side from Chapeco this Sunday. On paper this match looks like it is going to be one-sided.
The hosts have survived this year in the league with 9 wins and same number of defeats to be in 10th spot of league table.
They are managed by former Brazil and Corinthians coach Mano Menezes. This man knows how to win a league title, but it is not happening this year.
However they are champions in Copa do Brazil this year beating Corinthians 1-2.
Last league match was a defeat at the hands of Vasco at Rio that ended 2-0 in favour of the hosts. The team is good at scoring and equally on gifting goals to opponents.
Wellington Paulista is the main man in front of goal for Chape. The Brazilian has 7 goals in 6 caps.
Western Hurricanes are famous for the flight accident in which only three of their players were left alive. The team never lost spirit and came back last season when they finished 8th.
But this season they are in the relegation zone and may get the boot possibly.

Cruzeiro vs Chapecoense: Prediction
The most highlighted stats that will meet your eye is the visitor’s away record.
When a team is in that condition away from their home, there is no chance in even reaching the top half of the table. Even a point looks impossible for them in this match.
They have no form at the back and have conceded 42 goals on the road to relegation zone. With a win they may be able to get out of there depending on results of Vitoria and America.
