Cruzeiro vs Universidad Chile Match Preview and Predictions

Cruzeiro vs Universidad Chile
South America – Copa Libertadores
Date: Thursday, 26 April 2018
Kick-Off at 23:15 UK
Venue: Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto (Belo Horizonte).

Cruzeiro managed to hold Universidad Chile to a goalless draw seven days ago, but such accomplishment will count for little if they fail to clinch a three-pointer in the reverse fixture with the same opposition. It was a dreadful opening to the campaign in Copa Libertadores for Raposa who fell 4-2 to Racing Club.

They failed to recover from such loss and they are still winless in the competition, which is why Universidad’s visit is their last train to catch in order to stay in the contest for the top two spots in the group. The visitors will be happy with another draw here given they are three points clear off Cruzeiro. Chilean squad got a breakthrough in the opening round when they dispatched Vasco da Gama 0-1 on the road.

Cruzeiro vs Universidad Chile: Head-to-head

The head to head stats entirely speak in Cruzeiro’s favour.

Raposa won four and drew one of five H2H meetings with Universidad Chile.

The Chileans managed to bag only two goals in these five games.

Cruzeiro vs Universidad Chile: Prediction

Guillerno Hollos and his men look to be going through a massive crisis. They lost two and drew one of last three games in all competitions and they lost back-to-back domestic league ties to Colo-Colo and Union La Calera conceding as many as nine goals in the process.

This will be the music to the ears of Cruzeiro’s forwards who are struggling with their form at the start of the season. Mano Menezes has a deadly lineup of attackers in the likes of Robinho, Fred, Rafael Sobis and Sassa, but the team is yet to produce in Serie A where they lost both of the opening fixtures with the same 0-1 scoreline (against Gremio and Fluminense).

Since Universidad Chile showed plenty of defensive holes in recent league outings, we do expect the hosts to clinch a comprehensive confidence-boosting victory here in front of the home fans. The main pick is Cruzeiro to win by two or more goals difference at the odds of 1.85.
