Palmeiras vs Cruzeiro – Brasileirao Serie A – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Palmeiras vs Cruzeiro

Palmeiras vs Cruzeiro – Palmeiras hosts Cruzeiro at the Allianz Parque on 13th October, Thursday as they aim to consolidate their position atop the Brasileirao Serie A standings.

Palmeiras sit atop the league table with sixty points after twenty nine matches – with eighteen wins courtesy the best offense in the league. Palmeiras are closely trailed by Flamengo who are on fifty seven points.

With a close race expected for the Campeonato Brasileirao title in the lead-up to the final weeks of the season, Palmeiras must secure every point to ensure their ninth championship. Should Palmeiras prevail come end of the season, the Sao Paulo-based club could create a new record of winning the maximum number of championships in the history of Brazilian football.

Cruzeiro, their opponents tonight, are thirteenth with thirty six points. Their wins against Gremio and Ponte Preta in the last two matches put a stop to their poor stretch of form when they failed to win four consecutive games.

Team News

Fernando Prass will be Palmeiras’ only absentee as Gabriel Jesus has returned from international duty. Dede, Mayke, Fabio and Allison are sidelined through injuries for Cruzeiro while Edimar and Manoel are suspended.

Palmeiras Possible Starting Lineup: Jailson, Jean, Vitor Hugo, Yerri Mina, Egidio, Tche Tche, Ze Roberto, Moises, Roger Guedes, Gabriel Jesus, Dudu.

Cruzeiro Possible Starting Lineup: Lucas Franca, Lucas, Bruno Rodrigo, Leo, Bryan, Henrique, Lucas Romero, Giorgian de Arrascaeta, Robinho, Rafael Sobis, Ramon Abila.
