Cruzeiro's swift slide from Brazilian Championship favorites to relegation candidates

Brazil legend Pele weighs in on the recent incidents of racism in football and explains what needs to change.

Going into the last week of the Brazilian Championship, there is no doubt about the destiny of the title. Flamengo of Rio de Janeiro have been utterly dominant and lead by 16 points with two rounds remaining.

But if there is no longer any drama at the top of the table, there is plenty at the bottom. Four of the 20 teams will be relegated at the end of the season, and it looks as if a genuine giant will be among them.

Three of the relegation places have already been defined. Avai and Chapecoense...

Ronaldinho's son signs professional contract with Cruzeiro

Ronaldinho's son Joao Mendes de Assis Moreira has signed his first professional contract with Cruzeiro.

The promising forward, who will be playing with the under-14 squad, has signed a deal for several years, sources told ESPN Brasil.

Boca Juniors move on to Copa Lib semis as Cruzeiro's Dede sees red again

CONMEBOL rescinds VAR red card for Cruzeiro's Dede after horror collision with goalkeeper

CONMEBOL says it has canceled a red card given to Cruzeiro defender Dede following a VAR decision in a Copa Libertadores tie against Boca Juniors last week.

South American football's governing body chose to overrule the decision to send off Dede after Paraguayan referee Eber Aquino dismissed him in Buenos Aires following a collision with Esteban Andrada, which led to the goalkeeper breaking his jaw.

After checking with the video assistant referee, Aquino adjudged Dede had deliberately clashed...

Boca Juniors beat Cruzeiro as Dede sent off; Independiente, River Plate draw

On Tuesday night the quarterfinal first legs of the Copa Libertadores got underway with a 2-0 win for a Brazilian club over opposition from Argentina, in a game where a VAR-induced red card had a significant impact.

On Wednesday the exact opposite took place. This time with much more controversy.

In Gremio's 2-0 triumph away to Atletico Tucuman, there was little doubt that Tucuman's Gervesio Nunez deserved his red card after the video ref caught him stamping on an opponent.  But in the 2-0...
