CS Alagoano vs Cruzeiro for the Brazilian Serie A championship match on Sunday at Rei Pelé Stadium.
The 16th matchday of Brasileirao is played this Sunday with a meeting between CSA and Cruzeiro, two teams having weak periods but with totally different objectives with the home team coming to this season in search of permanence, unlike the visitors who were given as one of the candidates for the national title.
CSA has been having a fragile season and comes into this game with 11 points, 3 fewer than Cruzeiro, something few would expect for this season. The CSA team comes from a huge away win at Maracana against Fluminense 1-0 adding their second win this season.
Now CSA is facing Cruzeiro in another very complicated game against a team that, although not having a good time, is a team with a lot of individual quality and with the right coach can cause many problems to any squad.
The Cruzeiro after a weak half-season changed coach and Rogerio Ceni was chosen to take command, former coach of Fortaleza this season.
In the first game in
Now plays for the first time away from home but against an affordable team, so they have everything to add here another victory and start to escape to the last places.
I don’t expect an easy game for Cruzeiro, but I believe in the potential of this team under Rogerio Ceni.
The CSA will be motivated coming from a win away from home, but in my opinion, this Cruzeiro is far superior to CSA so I see value in the victory of visitors.
