Venue: Estadio Municipal Presidente Getulio Vargas (Fortaleza).
Ceara are going to take on Santos in the Brazilian Serie A in Wednesday’s late-night clash.
Home side are hammered to the bottom of the table and they are having a hard task to avoid the relegation at the end of the season. They’ve booked their only two wins just recently, in the last three rounds.
Ceara are six points away from the safe zone and their rivals in this round. Lisca’s side has many troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net as they managed to score only nine times in 15 matches played so far in the campaign.
However, they’ve improved their home displays lately as the hosts snatched seven points in their last three matches in front of the home crowd.
Santos are having a disappointing season as they are sitting on the 15th place currently. They’ve been searching for the victory for the past five rounds and although they are not too far from the top half of the table.
The visitors need to improve a lot in the upcoming period. Their latest signing, Bryan Ruiz, is going to help them boost their finishing, while their defence should tighten up the lines.
