  • Venue: Mineirão

Cuiaba will be looking for what will be their second win of the campaign when they travel to Mineirão for Matchday 8 of the 2024 Brazilian top flight campaign.

The hosts are desperate for a reaction after seeing their unbeaten run of six games in all competitions come to an end against Sao Paulo last weekend. Fernando Seabra's side fell behind after just five minutes, before a red card for Marlon Xavier around 30 minutes later ensured there was no comeback. Cruzeiro remain in the top half of the table despite the defeat, but the situation would be different if they were to lose again this week.

Cuiaba meanwhile beat Criciuma 5-2 last weekend to record only their third win of the season. Petit's side left the bottom of the table after that victory and will be looking to increase their chances of staying up with another win in Mineirão against Cuiba this week.

Betting Tips Cruzeiro vs Cuiaba: Under 2.5 goals

Despite finishing in 13th place last season, Cruzeiro had the second-best defence and they have maintained that form this season. The hosts enter this game with four clean sheets from their last five encounters, and as many games ended with under 2.5 goals.

Meetings between Cruzeiro and Cuiaba are not also known for being entertaining. At least one side failed to score in each of the last four meetings, and bets on under 2.5 goals were won in as many games.

  • Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals
