Cruzeiro Esporte Clube and CR Vasco da Gama will lock horns with each other in Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A this week. The match between Celeste and Cruzmaltino will be held at the Estádio Governador Magalhães Pinto and is scheduled to kick off at 10 pm Uk time on Wednesday.

Cruzeiro Esporte Clube

Cruzeiro Esporte Clube are one of the biggest and most well-known clubs in Brazil. Now owned by Brazilian legend Ronaldo, Cruzeiro have won the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A as many as many as four times in their history and have already clinched Campeonato Mineiro 38 times.

However, things are not going so well for Cruzeiro at the moment. They are without a head coach now and are as low as 16th in the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A table with 40 points from 33 matches. Raposa are only two points above the relegation zone and could go down to Campeonato Brasileiro Série B.

Cruzeiro will head into the match against CR Vasco da Gama on the back of a 1-0 victory over Fortaleza away from home in Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A. It came after defeats to Coritiba, Internacional and Sao Paulo in the league.

Machado, Baroni Boetto and Vital will be the three midfielders and will have Nikao, Papagaio and Nascimento in attack.

CR Vasco da Gama

Like Cruzeiro Esporte Clube, CR Vasco da Gama are also one of the biggest and most well-known clubs in Brazil. And, like Cruzeiro, Vasco are having a torrid time and could get relegated to the second division in Brazilian football.

Vasco da Gama are as low as 15th in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A table with 40 points from 33 matches. They are just two points above the bottom four and could suffer relegation to the Campeonato Brasileiro Série B.

Team News:

CR Vasco da Gama are likely to line up in a 4-1-4-1 formation. Leo Jardim will be in goal for the home team. Paulo Henrique, Maicon, Gary Medel and Lucas Pitol will be the four defenders. Jose Gabriel will be the defensive midfield. Gabriel Pec, Paulinho, Bruno Conceicao and Alex Teixeira will be the four attacking midfielders and will have Pablo Vegetti as the lone striker upfront.
