Cruzeiro EC was once one of the most successful teams on the South American continent. The traditional club from Belo Horizonte is now playing in the second division – for two years, mind you. Neither in the 2020 season nor in the 2021 season did Cruzeiro EC succeed in being promoted again. The start of the season so far is therefore all the more gratifying.


In the Série B, the second Brazilian league, Cruzeiro is at the top of the table after 13 games. In the middle of their battle for promotion, the "Raposa" from Belo Horizonte now have the cup game against Fluminense RJ. The first division team benefited from home advantage in the first leg and, as expected, is favored against Cruzeiro EC.

Fluminense – Cruzeiro Direct Comparison

In the last 42 matches between the two clubs, the direct comparison is currently balanced. Both teams have 16 wins, ten more matches ended in a draw. Cruzeiro and Fluminense last met in October 2019. At that time there was a goalless draw in the second half of the 2019 season.

Just a few months before the draw, Cruzeiro EC had eliminated “Fluzao” from the Copa do Brasil. In the round of 16 of the 2019 Brazilian Cup competition, a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Rio was followed by a 2-2 draw in the second leg. Cruzeiro EC bought the quarter-final ticket only after the penalty shootout.

Fluminense – Cruzeiro Brazil tip

In contrast to the struggling first division club from Rio de Janeiro, Cruzeiro EC has had a promising start to the season so far and is on course for the Série A. The "Raposa" is currently leading the Série B after 13 match days with 31 points and already has a comfortable one ahead of the pursuers.

If this is also followed up in the cup competition, there is definitely potential for a surprise in the round of 16 pairing between Fluminense and Cruzeiro. The result of the upcoming match is particularly important for the team from Belo Horizonte. After all, Cruzeiro EC has to make a guest appearance in the round of 16 first leg in Rio de Janeiro.
