Cruzeiro beats Bahia, wins 1st at Mineirão in 2023 and takes a breather in the fight against Z-4

After defeat Atlético-MG in the MRV Arenalast weekend, the cruise packed in Brasileirão and won another one. And it was in a direct confrontation against Bahia, this Wednesday (25), at Mineirão, for the 29th round, where Raposa won 3-0. In fact, the team from Minas Gerais won its first of the year at the stadium.

And the second victory in a row at the Brazilian Championship also helped the Minas Gerais club to take a breather in the fight against Z-4, since, at the moment, the distance to defeat is seven points. Raposa, in fact, is in the area of CONMEBOL South American.

Bahia, which had three victories, lost again and could end the round just one point away from the relegation zone, depending on the other results of the round.

And Cruzeiro’s victory began with an own goal. At 19 in the first half, Kanu tried to cut a cross in the area, but ended up deflecting it against his own goal.

In the final stage, the hosts expanded with Marlon, in a move that also included a “little help” from Bahia’s defense, as goalkeeper Marcos Felipe spread the ball poorly.

The one who closed the score in Belo Horizonte was Bruno Rodrigues, who in the final minutes puffed up after receiving assistance from William.

Classification in Brasileirão:

  • Cruise: 12° placed, with 37 points

  • Bahia: 14° placed, with 34 points
