Ceara vs Corinthians Prediction
Ceara secured a 1-1 draw at home the last match-day against the high-performing Athletico-PR. Meanwhile, Corinthians had to bow down to Atletico-MG the previous game week on the road, to a 2-1 scoreline.
At present, a draw holds no meaning for both, and especially for the hosts. Ceara are lagging four points behind the final playoff spot for Sudamericana, and have just two more match-days to make up the difference. Without a doubt, they need to win both their matches to try their luck.
In the meantime, counterparts Corinthians need three more points to absolutely ensure they get a ticket to the prime continental competition.
As such, we have a virtual final on the cards. Both teams will be playing for the three points. The teams will have to attack at one point or the other, as a single point at the end of ninety minutes is useless. Likely, this will lead to mistakes, or one relentless attacking force overpowering the defense of the other to find the back of the net.
Then it would be open season for goals. Once conceded, the trailing team will have nothing to lose and will put all their might in the attack. This will lead to further goals by both teams.
In short, quite different to a fixture in mid-season, this penultimate game in the competition has a great potential to turn into a goal-riot.
