Cruzeiro faces Avai Friday (22), at 9:30 p.m., at Estadio da Rescada, for the 31st round of the Campeonato Brasileiro Série B. Duel, which marks Cruzeiro’s return to the field after stopping in protest. From the salary delay, it is also essential that the two teams continue their chances of reaching the first division, even if the task of Raposa is more complicated than that of Avaí.
With 39 points, Cruzeiro needs to win all of his next eight games and he hopes the teams at the top of the table will cut back on their performances.
Avaí, with 50 points and fourth, wants to distance himself from CRB, fifth, who has the same score and is battling to enter the G-4.
As for the duel, the Celestial Team will have changes. Without relying on the edge of the field with coach Vanderlei Luxembourgo, suspended for a third yellow card, Fox will have defender Ramon and defensive midfielder Flavio in the starting line-up. There is also the entry of midfielder Marco Antonio into the suspended Giovanni position.
On the bench, Fox will also be reinforced: the return of defensive midfielder Ariel Cabral (returning from suspension), right-back Norberto, midfielder Marcinho and striker Wellington Nimes (who has recovered from physical problems).
The biggest surprise is the presence of Marcelo Moreno among the reserves. The striker is back after serving Bolivia in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, but will start the match off the bench. Young Thiago, who has done well in recent matches, was in charge of the attack.
