Ceara vs Internacional
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 7 January 2021
Kick-off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
The Red are currently placed fourth in the table, and also remain the only team in the whole competition to have posted nine points on the board from the past three match-days.
Moving on, only three teams in the league have scored more goals than them, and only three have conceded fewer than them as well.
On top of that, they also have a good h2h record against this opponent, including a 100% winning streak in 2020.
Meanwhile, the Big Grandpa are one of the weakest teams in the league, and they have been struggling to post a win for the past several game weeks. In fact, their only wins in the past few months have come against some of the worst teams in the Serie A.
Taking these observations into account, expect Internacional to have the upper hand this Thursday.
Ceara vs Internacional: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 2-0 win for Abel Braga’s men.
- They have lost just twice in the past six years.
- They have kept clean sheets in three of the preceding five match-ups.
- This past decade, the hosts have a single league win at this stadium.
- Since 2010, only once have the visitors failed to score at this ground.
Ceara vs Internacional Prediction
Guto Ferreira’s men were winless in 16 of their previous 22 overall fixtures, and three of their total five league wins since September have come against teams placed 16th or below in the table.
At home, they are also on a winless run of five fixtures, and their latest league win here had come against the dead-last placed Cortiba.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a three-game winning run, scoring two or more goals in all fixtures. And on the road, they have lost just twice in the league since September – against Santos, and Corinthians – two of the best teams in Brazilian top flight.
Finally, Braga’s men also have a good h2h record against this rival, and especially so in recent years.
Considering these observations, expect Internacional to have the edge this Thursday at the Castelao.
