Possible scenarios

In case of a draw or defeat for Católica, Cruzeiro will need to win the two remaining games, at Mineirão, precisely against their main opponents to guarantee leadership in the last two rounds.

Cruzeiro is at risk of returning to third place in the group after the end of the fourth round. To remain in second place, the club needs La Calera to lose or draw.
