Cruzeiro beats Tombense and returns to the final of the Campeonato Mineiro

Fourth placed in the last edition, Cruzeiro is back in the final of the Campeonato Mineiro after beating Tombense 3-1, this Saturday (16), at Mineirão.

The goals of the match were scored by Arthur Gomes, Matheus Pereira and Zé Vitor, a Tombense defender who scored one against and one for.

The brilliance of Matheus Pereira

The number 10 was one of Cruzeiro’s highlights in the match. In addition to the assist and the goal, the midfielder dictated the team’s rhythm, with deep passes, organization and dangerous plays in attack.

The victory puts Cruzeiro back in the final of the Campeonato Mineiro. The club’s last time in the state decision was in 2022, when Paulo Pezzolano was the team’s coach.

Who will the final be against?

Cruzeiro is still waiting for its opponent in the final of the Campeonato Mineiro. The rival will leave the duel between América and Atlético. The other semifinal game is scheduled for this Sunday (17th), at 7pm (Brasília time), at the Independência stadium.

Atlético has the advantage, as they won the first match 2-0. The black and white team is playing for a draw or could even lose 1-0, which will guarantee a place in the final of the Campeonato Mineiro.

América needs to win by two goals if they want to qualify for the final.

Fan party

Cruzeiro fans took advantage of the sunny Saturday to throw a big party at Mineirão. In the stands, more than 39 thousand fans sang, waved balloons and flags, in a beautiful spectacle at Gigante da Pampulha.

With each goal from Nicolás Larcamón’s team, the fans got excited and celebrated, with chants or cell phone flashlights.

Cruzeiro’s basketball team was praised and congratulated by the fans during the break. The athletes, members of the technical committee and board of directors took a lap around the lawn, the famous “Olympic lap”, to celebrate the South American Basketball Cup title. The title was won at the end of February this year.

Raposão, Cruzeiro’s mascot, also made the Olympic rounds holding the champion’s cup.

The game

Cruzeiro dominated the game, controlled the match and guaranteed qualification to the final of the Campeonato Mineiro. The celestial team had more possession of the ball and more scoring opportunities. Even so, in the first half he only scored once, with Arthur Gomes and a very beautiful play by Matheus Pereira.

The celestial team was better in the first half, despite not being as effective due to wasting many chances. In the second stage, the team increased the score and conceded a goal after a poor marking.

The second half was more controlled by Cruzeiro. On the technical side, more “dragged”. However, the celestial team guaranteed its return to the State final and awaits Atlético or América for the decision.

Game chronology

In the 34th minute of the first half, Matheus Pereira made a spectacular pass to Arthur Gomes. The number 11 infiltrated the area like a rocket, headed strong and placed the ball under goalkeeper Felipe Garcia’s legs.

The move was very adjusted and was analyzed by the video referee. With everything in order, judge Felipe Fernandes de Lima confirmed: Cruzeiro 1 to 0.

In the 23rd minute of the second half, defender Zé Vitor, from Tombense, scored an own goal, after huge confusion in the Gavião Carcará defense: 2-0.
