Cruzeiro vs Corinthians Prediction 11 October 2018

Tournament: Copa do Brasil
Location: Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto
Match date: 11.10.2018 at 01:45

On October 11 2018 at 01:45 at the Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto in Belo Horizone in the forhtocimung match of the Copa de Brazil the local Cruzeiro will host their guests Corinthians. This is going to be the long-awaited final of the national cup where the previous cup winners will try their best to protect the title. Will the current champions be able to get the cup in the two match fight against its owners?

Cruzeiro are now on the ninth position in the standings of the national elite division with 37 points gained. They were also kicked-off from the Copa Libertadores not so long ago. There is one serious problem the hosts will have to fact in the upcoming match and it will be the fact that they will be missing one of their most important players because of the international friendlies and Nations League games as the Brazilian federation didn’t manage to come to any compromise with FIFA. Anyway, the team will be extremely motivated as the prize pool of the Copa de Brazil would be able to solve all of their financial problems.

It’s surprising that Corinthians made it to the final of the national cup as they lost a few important players during the preseason campaign and they had two managers changed during the season. They no longer have any chances to protect the title as they are only on the 11th place now. They had to change their priorities and concentrate on the national cup to improve their mood and the financial situation. Corinthians were lucky to have really poor competitors on their way to the finals where they outplayed a few outsiders and also Chapecoense and Vitoria who are by far not in their best conditions.

The stakes are really high in the upcoming two matches as the victory would save the season for any team. That’s why they will both be motivated and really careful, trying not to miss goals. Moreover, Cruzeiro seem to be doing a bit better as they are more stable. That’s why it seems to us that the hosts are much more likely to win and there won’t be really a lot of goals scored.
