27.04.2014 Brasil - Série A
21:00h Cruzeiro - Sao Paulo 2 (+0.25)ah @ 1.93 SBObet 7/10
At first, this match will be played at Parque do Sabiá in Uberlândia that is 550km away from Belo Horizonte, the same distance as from São Paulo so practically Cruzeiro will not be the official host in this match.
Main goal of Cruzeiro is Copa Libertadores and coach Marcelo Oliveira confirmed it several times so far. They were also saved many regulars in last match against Bahia but they won 1-2 in a very tough visit. This only proves how large bench has Cruzeiro, but with players like Moreno, Borges, Souza, Nilton etc.. we cant say this is reserve team. But, Im sure that whole team is thinking only about rematch in Paraguay against Cerro who made them a lot of trouble in Brasil. One of their best players last season Ricardo Goulart got injured as like main striker Dagoberto (ex topscorer of São Paulo) and with those absences they are losing a lot in the offensive. GK Fábio will be again on the goal because reserve gk Rafael is also injured. Mid Elber and def Vilson are also struggling with injuries and will also miss this match. Although it is too early for any official information, I am sure that Marcelo Oliveira will put very mixed and young team because these reserves will surely travel to Paraguay due to absences of important players.
São Paulo is a team that need to force this season. Muricy Ramalho made great collective, which are reinforced with two great players Alvaro Pereira and Alexandre Pato. In Paulista they were best team by far in group stage but very unlucky lost on penalties against Penapolense in quarter-finals. I watched them in opening match against Botafogo, they won very easily 3-0 and were dominated all 90 minutes. Pato has very well adapt to the team and with Luis Fabiano and great playmaker Ganso, this season can make anything and I expect to finish in the top 3 teams. Odds are wrong placed and Im pretty confident in this pick.
