The decisive meeting will take place at the José Pinheiro Borda stadium, the giant of Beira-Rio, in Porto Alegre. The kick-off has been scheduled for 9:30 pm (Brasília time).In the first semifinal, played almost a month ago, in Belo Horizonte, the miners were beaten 1-0, still directed by Mano Meneses, who was just over three years in charge of the fox’s technical command. This allows Colorado to advance to the final, which will be against the winner of Grêmio / Athletico Paranaense, in case of success or even a draw. Miners need to win by two goals to reverse the situation in regular time. Success by minimum margin leads to definition for penalty kicks.
The performance that the Internacional has been presenting in its stadium throughout the season shows that the task cannot be considered of the most difficult.

It happened without defeat. The team fell when they drew 1-1 against Flamengo, after losing 2-0 at Maracanã.
The outgoing game against Internacional has turned out to be a milestone in the recent history of Cruzeiro. He ended the long-term career of coach Mano Menezes at the club. After just over three years in office, the coach, who had survived shortly before the elimination at the Copa Libertadores de America at home against River, could not keep up with an imminent fall in the Brazilian Cup, especially because it was not presenting solutions for low offensive production of the team, which, then, was in the relegation zone of the Brazilian Championship.Rogério Ceni was taken from Fortaleza to solve the problem. Had three matches before the duel that will allow greater comparisons between the works and fulfilled his first mission, which was to take the team from the region of sticking in the Brasileirão adding seven of the nine points played in the tournament.On Sunday, September 1, at home, they beat Vasco, 1-0. Before that, they had tied 1-1 at home against CSA and in the first match of the new coach of the commander, also in their domains. , had beaten Santos 2-0. With 18 points (four wins, six draws and seven losses), he moved up to sixteenth, the first out of Z4.
Football Prediction of the Day Internacional vs Cruzeiro
Cruzeiro improved where needed with Rogério Ceni. Increased offensive production. But still it seems to be little in the face of a solid International, with advantage and advocating a long invincibility in their domains. Thus, the prediction of Colorado’s success seems to be the best option for Wednesday’s match for the return journey of the 2019 FIFA World Cup semi-finals.
