Oliveira will return to Cruzeiro after sending an automatic suspension in a win over The Factor

Cruzeiro will get a boost for the match against JB Blanca, next Wednesday (8), at 19:00 in Mineiro. After being suspended in the match that ended in a 2-1 victory over Operrio-PR, defender Oliveira will return to the starting line-up for the match of Round 11 of the Second Division.

In this way, Cruzeiro will once again have a defense made up of Zed Evaldo, Oliveira and Eduardo Brock. The trio, who have never lost playing together, have played five consecutive matches without leaking in the second division – Londrina, Chapecoense, Gremio, Nautico, Sampaio Cora.

Z Ivaldo was also stopped in the 1-0 win over Cricima, in Round 9, the last game in which Paolo Pezzolano managed to start the trio on May 22, when Raposa beat Sampaio Korra 2-0in Mineiro.

Another defender is available again after being penalized with three yellow cards, Giovanni. The 20-year-old can be used as a defender or as a right-back, a role he has already played in the youth ranks and also under coach Paolo Pezulano.

Wagner Leonardo, defender on loan from Santos to Cruzeiro, is still receiving treatment for Right thigh stretch. The 22-year-old took to the field for the last time in the heavenly victory over Grmio, 1-0, on May 8.

Against CRB, Cruzeiro will find his fan after two away games. The miners will seek to maintain the winning streak, which has already lasted seven matches in the second division. He promised a full house, with over 25,000 tickets already sold.
