Cruzeiro are in fine form and are 7-2-1 in their last 10 starts, scoring 27 goals a league high total, which includes 14 in the last 4 matches.

It is only the outstanding run of Sao Paulo which has kept them off the top of the table. They are 8 points behind, with a game in hand and cannot afford to slip furher behind. Away from home they have been equally prolific, scoring 22 in 10 starts, again a league high total and recording 5 wins.

The hosts have won just twice in 10 starts, against woeful America and Goias, given their lowly position I think it is fair to say that they targeted those games, as "must wins" and gave everything to get a result. They are very leaky at the back, conceding almost two goals per game and it is hard to see Cruzeiro, who have scored two or more in 17 of 22 matches, fairing less well.

4.5 points Cruzeiro -1/4 ball 1.94 asian line.

Good Luck.
