Cruzeiro vs Vitoria
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 30th July 2017
Kick off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto.

Cruzeiro will have an imperative to snatch a three-pointer after four consecutive fixtures without a single win.

Raposa are set to host the struggling Vitoria side who will come to Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto with a series of four consecutive losses.

Cruzeiro

Mano Menezes’ men dropped down to the ninth position in the league standings after a slide in form caused by a tough schedule over the last couple of weeks.

The hosts have been struggling to find the back of the net lately as they only bagged a single goal in last two outings with Avai and Palmeiras.

Vitoria

Raposa will have a nice chance to boost up the attacking confidence against Vitoria who have been very easy to break down recently.

The visitors allowed as many as 13 goals during the four-loss run which caused the change on the bench as Flavio Tanajura took over Alexandre Gallo as the new head coach.

However, Tanajura can’t be proud of the debut as Leao da Barra suffered a 1-2 defeat to Chapecoense on the home pitch last Saturday.

Cruzeiro vs Vitoria: Head to head

Cruzeiro have completely dominated this match-up in the recent history winning eight of their last nine head to head meetings with Vitoria.

Raposa claimed nine wins in 12 encounters with Leao da Barra at Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto and we expect this trend to be continued in the weekend ahead of us.

Cruzeiro vs Vitoria: Prediction

The hosts will hardly miss out on the opportunity to get their campaign back on track against Vitoria and we would not be surprised to see Raposa netting three or more goals on Sunday.
