Cruzeiro vs CS Alagoano Prediction
Cruzeiro were at the losing end for the first time in twelve games after second-placed Santos ran riot over them with a 4-1 scorecard. With no more than thirty-six points to their name, the hosts are struggling to propel themselves out of the relegation zone at the moment.
It is also worth mentioning that Cruzeiro have been sharing the spoils in their last four games on the trot here. However, a change in fortune looks to be on the cards for the hosts.
Their counterparts are right below them on the ladder, albeit with a five deficit to scale. But, that is not all. CS Alagoano are currently on a dismal five-match losing streak, the most recent of which was at the hands of Fluminese at home.
To pile on even more misery, the visitors have been branded as the worst away side in the cluster, and for good reason. They have managed just one measly win on the road so far, and have admitted defeat twenty two times in the process as well.
Taking into account that CS Alagoano have not registered a win against this foe in any of their previous two meetings either, Cruzeiro are likely to be the ones securing the bragging rights come Friday.
Furthermore, neither side have been a force to reckon with in the final third. The home side have found the back of the net just twice in their previous five games here. Meanwhile, CS Alagoano have lost without getting their names on the score sheet in three of their past four outings.
Also, none of the last seven clashes at this venue have featured more than 2.5 goals on the charts. Hence, count on Cruzeiro to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
