Cruzeiro continues with many difficulties to overcome opponents in the direct fight against the relegation zone and, also, to enforce the home factor. The team, this time, managed only a draw against Figueirense, by 1 to 1, in Mineirão, and lost one more chance to distance themselves from the sticking.
Felipão has yet to lose at Cruzeiro, but three of the six games with him ended equally on the scoreboard, two of which were at home. The draws with Guarani and Figueirense, in sequence, stopped the reaction of the team in Series B of the Brazilian Championship.

But the problem of Cruzeiro in winning the duels as the principal comes from the beginning of the competition. In 12 games played at Mineirão, the team won just four, drawing four and losing four others. Use of only 44.4% of the points.
The difficulty in winning direct duels against relegation is also great. With Felipão, for example, the team won Botafogo-SP, but drew with Náutico, Guarani and Figueirense.
The problem, however, also appeared with Enderson Moreira and Ney Franco, in the ties with Confiança and Oeste and in the defeats to Brasil de Pelotas, CSA, Avaí and Sampaio Corrêa. The last two, even, fight for access and no longer against demotion.
The next game, however, will be against the leader Chapecoense, shot at the edge, with ten points of advantage for the second placed, in Santa Catarina. The teams will face each other next Tuesday, at 9:30 pm, at Arena Condá, in Chapecó, for the 23rd round of Series B.
