With Rafael Cabral in the goal, Cruzeiro faces Fluminense at 7 pm next Thursday (23), for the round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil
Even without entering the field in the 14th round, Cruzeiro will remain leader of the Series B of the Brazilian Championship. The celestial team had the clash with Ituano, in the middle of the week, postponed due to the commitment against Fluminense, for the round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil. For the first leg, the Minas Gerais club will visit Tricolor das Laranjeiras next Thursday (23), at Maracanã.
The top of the table will remain assured, due to the difference for vice-leader Vasco being four points. The gap is even greater for the other two occupants of the G-4: six points for Bahia and ten for Grêmio. One of the main names in Raposa’s trajectory in the first half has been goalkeeper Rafael Cabral. Not only with good performances in Serie B, but also with decisive participation in the Copa do Brasil. He saved four penalties against Remo, qualifying the Club to the round of 16.
Like Rafael, Gabriel Brazão was also hired to reinforce the squad at the beginning of the season. Linked to Inter Milan until June 2024, the 20-year-old archer arrived at Toca da Raposa on loan until the same month in 2023. However, the young athlete suffered an injury to his left knee and is expected to return to the pitch only for November. The player completes a month of surgery this Monday (20) and is going through a recovery phase – with a focus on physiotherapy. The information is from GE.
The young athlete already walks normally and was even at Mineirão last Thursday (16), watching Cruzeiro’s 2-0 victory over Ponte Preta. With Rafael Cabral in the goal, Cruzeiro faces Fluminense at 7pm next Thursday (23), for the round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil. Afterwards, Raposa receives Sport, in Mineirão, on Tuesday (28), for the 15th round of Série B.
