Praised by the competitors, Cruzeiro fans reached the second place in the average fan rating in the first and second series and the Brazilian Championship.
With nearly 50 thousand attendees in Mineirao for a 1-0 win over Bahia, this Saturday (23), the Celestial team outperformed Corinthians. Now, he only loses to Flamengo. Palmeiras and Atletico, in that order, complete the top five.
So far, most of the clubs playing in the Italian league have sent nine matches in their fields. Cruzeiro has 10 points. And Raposa could only be surpassed by one more match by Corinthians, who host Botafogo next Saturday (30).
If Sao Paulo’s 41,900 fans score at New Coimica – which has happened in just two Serie A rounds so far – Parque São Jorge will once again overtake Raposa in the average standings.
The figures in the ‘Tickets Used’ column per match limits, provided by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) were taken into account in the survey. For matches for which this document has not yet been issued, the numbers published by the clubs were used.
Cruzeiro numbers attract attention. Since 2006, when the Serie B title race began with consecutive points, the highest average attendance has been from Atletico (31922). Today, Fox scored 38,344.
In absolute numbers, according to a site survey soccer wormsAtlético had 606,518 fans in the 19 matches it was at home in the second division. So far, Cruzeiro has played 383.442 out of 10.
So, if they get an average of 25,000 fans in the nine matches they will still have on their home ground, Raposa will beat his arch rival.
In this version of Série B, Cruzeiro had already had to submit the match against Grêmio – one of the competition’s most attractive games – for the sixth round at Independientia. At that time, Mineirão was the stage for Metallica concerts and Festival Brasil Sertanejo.
