Player to watch: Matheus Pereira

Matheus Pereira opened the scoring in Cruzeiro's 3-0 win over Corinthians last weekend. He has put up some impressive performances recently, with five direct goal involvements (3 goals, 2 assists) in his last seven matches. The former Sporting CP player is just two goals behind Pedro in the race for the Golden Boot, so it will be interesting to see if he will add to his tally here.
