In front of their home crowd in the 24th round of the Brazilian Championship on Wednesday, Cruzeiro beat Ceara 2-0.

Both of Cruzeiro's goals were scored by their Argentinean talent Montillo and Farias.

After going most of the game without a goal, Cruziero was able to score two goals in the last minutes of play. Montillo scored the first in the 84th minute, converting a penalty kick after the referee called a hand ball by defender Ernandes.

In the second minute of injury time, the team scored again when Montillo crossed the ball to his Argentinean compatriot Farias who reached the ball before the defense and tapped the ball past keeper Michel Alves.

The loss marks Ceara's third consecutive round without a win. The team dropped to eleventh place with 30 points. In the next round of play, the team will travel to face Avai on September 26.

Cruzeiro's win provisionally takes them to second place with 44 points. Their definitive standing will depend on the remainder of the 24th round of play. In the next round of action, the team will travel to play Santos on September 25.
