Cruzeiro x Corinthians: Lineups, Review, Where to Watch and Predictions

Raposa and Timão will face each other this Sunday in Mineirão (07), for the 15th round of the Brasileirão; More than 50 thousand fans are expected in Mineirão.

In a match that should attract a large crowd, Cruzeiro and Corinthians will face each other this Sunday (07), at Mineirão, at 16:00; Around 50,000 fans are expected at Gigante da Pampulha. Raposa comes from a defeat against Criciúma de Santa Catarina and is looking to redeem itself in front of its fans. Timão defeated the Vitória team with a goal in injury time, playing in Itaquera.


Cruzeiro are going through a rollercoaster ride in the Brazilian league when it comes to controlling the pitch. While their away record is significantly worse, with just one win in eight games, their home form is perfect. They have won all their games at the Mineirão so far and will look to maintain that performance against Corinthians this Sunday.


After beating Vitória in the last round, Corinthians can breathe a little easier in the standings. The three points won at home were enough to keep coach Antônio Oliveira in charge, who is under a lot of pressure from the Corinthians fans. However, Timão’s position in the standings is still uncomfortable, being still in the relegation zone.


In the Brazilian championship, Cruzeiro and Corinthians have already met 66 times. The Corinthians team has a slight advantage, with 26 wins against Raposa’s 22, in addition to 18 draws. In last year’s Brasileirão, Corinthians won in Itaquera in the first round of the competition by 2-1. In the second round, they drew 1-1 at Mineirão.

Fortune tellers

“I think Cruzeiro will above all maintain the home advantage and try to impose their own pace of play, supported by 50 thousand fans. The victory is essential for Raposa to remain at least in the top 6 group, until reinforcements. They will be able to debut, from the opening of the window, on July 10.”

Daniel Costa, Cruzeiro Sector Manager

Prediction: Cruzeiro 2 x 1 Corinthians

“It will be a duel between opposites, despite coming from two consecutive defeats, Cruzeiro has a better team and has more experience with its coach, while Timão has not played well but beat Vitória at home and does not yet have a definite moment as a coach.”

Leonardo Miyagui, Corinthians Sector Manager

Prediction: Cruzeiro-2 x 0 Corinthians
