Cruzeiro U20 form and stats

Cruzeiro U20 must be fairly happy with 6 points from their first three Brasileiro U20 games here at Estádio das Alterosas.

No payout for Cruzeiro U20 in their previous match, an away game at Fluminense U20 that ended in defeat 1-5. Before that, Cruzeiro had a home game versus America Mineiro U20 which ended with a victory 2-1.

As you see from the result above, Cruzeiro U20 suffered greatly in their last game. Thankfully the team has a new chance to prove themselves in this one.

This is expected to be a close game, with Cruzeiro perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage.

Palmeiras U20 failed to get anything from their last game, a Brasileiro U20 home match vs Chapecoense-SC U20 (placed 20th) that ended with defeat 1-4. Before that one, a nice away victory 1-0 at Internacional U20.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Palmeiras playing away and similar expectations, we found eight relevant matches. Results were three Palmeiras U20 wins, two draws and three defeats.
