    On Wednesday night, Cruzeiro host Corinthians in Brazil’s Serie A, as the home side look to enhance their chances of sealing a Copa Libertadores spot.

    Cruzeiro are currently ninth place in the Brasilian Serie A table, just a point outside the Copa Libertadores berths. A draw in this clash would be enough to take the home side into the Copa Libertadores qualifying spots if the rounds other results go their way.

    The home side’s recent form in Serie A has been mixed, as they have won three and lost two of their last five outings. Last time out, they suffered a 2-0 defeat at rivals for a continent place Atletico PR.

    Cruzeiro’s recent league games have been relatively high scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last eight matches.

    The home side has been in decent form on home soil, winning three of their last four league outings at home, while losing just one of their last eight league games on home soil.

    Their recent home games in Serie A have been high scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four home games.

    Corinthians are currently 13th place in the Brasilian Serie A, six points behind the home side. The visitors are currently in the Copa Sudamericana spots, but a win would put them in contention for a Copa Libertadores berth.

    The visitors have a woeful recent away record, failing to win in eight away games, suffering six defeats in the process. Cruzeiro’s recent away games in the Brazilian top-flight have been relatively low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in six of their last eight outings.

    A part of those low scoring games has been their poor record in front of goal, as they have failed to score in four of their last five away games.

    Forebet predicts that Cruzeiro will record a victory in a low scoring encounter to aid their chances of claiming a Copa Libertadores.
