Cruzeiro will be looking to improve on their last outing here after a 2-1 Copa do Brasil defeat last time out to Fluminense.
Their latest results show that quality has been evident in the Cruzeiro backline. Cruzeiro have been mean at the back, seeing the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their previous 6 clashes standing at 4.
Their prior results show that Cruzeiro:
- have not lost a league tie with Sport Recife in their last 5 matches.
- are undefeated in their previous 9 league matches at home. A run that they’ll hope to extend here.
Previously, Sport Recife drew 0-0 in the Serie B match with Brusque.
For 5 of the prior 6 games involving Sport Recife, a comparatively low number of goals have been struck between them and opposing sides. The overall average number of goals per game during that period comes out as just 1.17, with the average goals for Leão da Ilha equalling 0.5. That being said, it remains to be seen whether that pattern might be maintained here in this match.
Analysis of their past results shows that Sport Recife:
- have not registered a win against Cruzeiro when having played them away from home in the previous 2 matches in the league.
- are without an away win for the past 3 league games.
