Without winning four matches (three draws and one defeat), Cruzeiro hosts the Brazil team, Sunday, at 11 am, in Independencia, to try to return to the path of positive results and move away from the relegation zone in Series B. of the Brazilian Championship.

The Celestial team is ranked 16th in the table with 32 points – five more than Londrina who opened Z4. The chances of reaching the elite of Brazilian football are very remote. The first club in G4, CRB already has 47 points (15 more than Raposa).

Who can return to the first striker Bruno Joss. He has already been involved in most of the second half of the 1-1 draw with Guarani, last Wednesday, and is supposed to start the match against Brazil-RS.

Left-back Mateus Pereira, defensive midfielder Adriano and striker Rafael Sobes, who are suspended at Campinas, are also options for Luxembourg. The first two must be pregnant.

On the other hand, Cruzeiro will not have striker Marcelo Moreno. The Bolivian team’s top scorer left Belo Horizonte last Thursday to present himself to coach Caesar Varas for the Bolivian national team matches.

Starting point In the vast majority of matches under Luxembourg’s leadership, defensive midfielder/right-back Ramulo has defrauded Cruzeiro due to physical issues. He was excluded from the duel related list.
