Ceara vs Palmeiras
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 10 June 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Governador Placido Aderaldo Castelo, Fortaleza.
Palmeiras climbed up to the third place after impressive back-to-back wins over Sao Paulo and Gremio. The rock-hard schedule is behind them and last term’s runners-up now look well on pace to join the title contest after mentioned wins. Verdao will have a great opportunity to maintain the superb form and complete the week with the third consecutive victory on Sunday when they travel to Fortaleza to take on the weakest side in the league at Estadio Governador Placido Aderaldo Castelo.
It seems the light at the end of the tunnel is nowhere to be seen for Vozao who’ve made the third managerial change since the start of the season after last weekend’s home loss to Cruzeiro. The team is still looking for the adequate solution on the bench, but they managed to hold the likes of Botafogo to a goalless draw on Tuesday evening even in such circumstances.
Ceara vs Palmeiras: Head-to-head
The draw has been the most frequent of outcomes in the history of H2H matches between these two rivals, happening on four occasions in seven games.
It’s been five years since the two teams last locked horns and back then they were battling it out in Serie B.
As many as nine goals were seen in last two H2H outings between Ceara and Palmeiras.
Vozao won only one of seven matches against Palmeiras.
Ceara vs Palmeiras: Predictions
The return of the regular center back Luiz Otavio certainly helped Ceara keep things tight at the back in mid-week clash with Botafogo. Nevertheless, Vozao are struggling badly to create at the opposite end as they’ve scored league low four goals in ten matches so far in the season. Ceara will head into this after failing to find the back of the net in five consecutive games in all competitions.
It’s really hard to predict anything else but the away victory here since the visitors come into the game in high spirits after winning two on the bounce against teams like Sao Paulo and Gremio. Palmeiras to win is thus a banker bet at the 1.75 odds, while you can alternatively go with the visitors to keep a clean sheet at 2.25.
