Ceara vs Sport Recife
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 18th July 2018
Kick-off at 23:30 UK
Venue: Estádio Plácido Aderaldo Castelo (Fortaleza).
The Brazilian Serie A restarts after a short break during the FIFA World Cup 2018 with the relegation bound Ceara taking on the impressive Sport Recife.
Ceara, the newly promoted side went into the break after failing to register a win in the campaign and sit at the foot of the table with 5 accumulated from stalemates.
We can easily see that nothing came together for them in the period as they the lowest scoring side in the division as well as one of the worst defense.
On the other hand, Sport Recife made a decent start to the campaign, yet not totally convincing. They have 19 points in the bag and occupy the 7th spot in a highly congested top half of the Brazilian Serie A standings.
Majority of their success owe to strong home form and they are unbeaten in 6 games in that aspect. The away form has been inconsistent, but they still managed to bag 2 wins and a draw from 6 games along the way.

Ceara vs Sport Recife Prediction
Ceara had struggled in the Serie A campaign and will be hoping for a fresh start on Wednesday evening. To add to their woes, the troubling in scoring roles remains a core problem after failing to net in recently concluded double header Copa do Brasil tie against Bahia.
Sport Recife is not the most convincing travelers in the domestic circuit. Still, they can be considered as a team with knack of picking up points against those sides sitting at the bottom half of the table. Thus, we are looking at an away win here, most likely with a clean sheet.
