Competition: Brazilian Serie A
Market: Cruzeiro and Santos to draw
Odds: 11/5 @ William Hill
Cruzeiro welcome Santos to the Mineirão in the Brazilian Serie A on Sunday evening, in a game that could be close to call given the two sides’ defensive record and draws racked up in recent weeks. Cruzeiro and Santos have both been short of wins of late and may settle for a share of the spoils given how damaging a defeat could be in the top-six.
As for the hosts, Mano Menezes’ Cruzeiro side are currently sixth in the Brazilian Serie A table with 30 points from 21 games this season, coming off the back of two wins and two draws from their last five outings, having drawn three of their previous four on home soil. Cruzeiro have the third-best defence in the league but aren’t too full of goals, a description which would somewhat fit their opponents this weekend.
As for the visitors, Levir Culpi’s Santos side find themselves third in the division with 37 points, having drawn four of their last five games and three on the bounce ahead of this weekend’s clash. Santos have the second-best defence in the league, scoring fewer goals than Cruziero, and have drawn their last four away games. William Hill are giving odds of 11/5 for Cruzeiro and Santos to draw.
