Match: Cruzeiro vs Racing Club Competition: Copa Libertadores Time / Date: 03:30h / 23 May 2018 Venue: Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto
Cruzeiro will face Racing Club in the final round of the Copa Libertadores group stage, where hosts need points to reach next round.
Cruzeiro have not yet secured second place in the group, they need at least one point in this match to qualify for the eighth-finals. In the last four games at Copa Libertadores, they are unbeaten. They are quite good at attacking as they have managed to score 13 goals so far, and the defence protects the things from the back pretty well. They allowed their opponent to win only a point at their own pitch and have been with clean sheets in both games.
Cruzeiro’s opponent in this match, Racing Club has already secured a place in the next round of the race. The Argentinianс are without a loss in the group and they record quite convincing wins. As guests have two draws and both ends 1:1.

They meet each other only once in the first game of the group stage where Racing Club booked easy win with 4:2 at home.
I expect the guests not to be reasonably motivated for this encounter and Cruzeiro to succeed in taking one important point or more.
