Cruzeiro x Atletico: Find out the two possible formations for the Mineiro decision

This Sunday (7), starting at 3:30 pm (Brasilia time), Cruzeiro and Atlético will decide the Mineiro Championship title, in Mineirão, in Belo Horizonte. This Saturday (6), the teams carried out the final preparatory activity for the Classic in Gigante da Pampulha.

Belo Horizonte's two biggest rivals will face each other again in the Minero Championship final. The best team in the state qualifiers, the Celestials sought a 2-2 draw in the first match, played last Saturday (30), at the Arena MRV Stadium, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The confrontation was characterized by the presence of only Atletico fans in the stadium.

In Sunday's match (7), at Mineirão Stadium, the team led by Nicolas Larcamon will be crowned champion after a new draw. On the other hand, Gabriel Milito's team won the fifth championship in a row by winning on goal difference. Gigante da Pampulha will have a large audience presence at the match, as Cruzeiro fans have bought more than 60,000 tickets.

Cruzeiro could make changes to the squad for the first match of the final, at Arena MRV. In the first classic decision, Larcamon surprised the lineup. The Argentine adopted a system of playing with three defenders, with Neres replacing Ze Evaldo. In midfield, he chose Machado instead of Lucas Silva. Furthermore, goalkeeper Matheus Vital was replaced by defender Lucas Villalba.

The biggest doubt for the match is defender Ze Evaldo. The defender felt pain in his left thigh and had to be substituted in the match against Universidad Católica of Ecuador, on Thursday (4), in the Copa Sudamericana. Hey The player trained on Saturday (6), but complained of pain. He will undergo a new test to see if he will be able to enter the field.

On the other hand, coach Nicolas Larcamon will be able to rely on two “reinforcements” to make the decision. Forwards Arthur Gomez and Denino did not travel to Ecuador, and are expected to return to participate in the state final. The two showed a “high level of wear” and remained in Belo Horizonte to regain their physical health.

Given the doubts surrounding the Classic, Larcamon should play Cruzeiro with Rafael Cabral; William and Nerys (as Evaldo), Joao Marcelo and Marlon; Lucas Romero, Lucas Silva, Mateus Vital (Cefuentes), Mateus Pereira; Arthur Gomez and Denino.


Atletico rested two key players in the match in which it won against Caracas last Thursday in Venezuela in the first round of the seventh group of the Libertadores Cup. Mauricio Lemos and Matias Zaracho were excluded from the continental championship match.

The trend is for Zaracho to return to the team in place of young Alisson. The big question is between returning Mauricio Lemos or keeping Alan Franco. The coach's decision will affect the tactical scheme chosen for the match.

Coach Gabriel Milito can still bring something new to the classic. Hey Midfielder Robbins has improved in his recovery and could feature in the match against Mineirão.

Atletico should enter the field with: Iverson; Bruno Fox, Jimerson and Mauricio Lemos (Alan Franco); Saravia, Battaglia, Zaracho, Igor Gomez and Guilherme Arana; Paulinho and Hulk.
