Corinthians vs Ceara
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 7 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Arena Corinthians (Sao Paulo).
Despite stuttering mid-way through their campaign, Fabio Carrille’s men have turned things around and are currently third in the table with thirty-one points in the bag. The home team have not tasted defeat in their last thirteen games across all competitions and are unbeaten in their previous nine in the league as well.
The squad came out on top in their most recent matchup against Atletico MG at home with Gustavo netting the only goal of the game for his side.
Ceara are yet to find a winning rhythm in their campaign and are sporting a dismal three-match losing streak in the league at the moment. The away side who are fourteenth in the table were taken out by Athletico-PR in their previous trip on the road, while at home they succumbed to a 3-0 scoreline against Flamengo.
Given the disastrous form that Ceara have been on in their outings, an easy win for Corinthians is definitely in the reckoning.

Corinthians vs Ceara Prediction
The hosts will be breathing easy in their clash on Saturday as home advantage has been suiting them just fine in their campaign so far. The team are yet to stumble at home this season and have emerged victoriously in six of their last nine matchups.
On the other hand, Caera have been struggling in their clashes on the road, and have not been tasting success in their last five outings in a row either. Additionally, the visitors have not been able to get the better of the hosts more than once in their previous visits to this venue.
Taking into account that the home team are on a three-match winning streak in the league at the moment as well, expect Ceara to slump further down the table this weekend as Corinthians are the favorites to come away with the three points in this one.
Furthermore, the visitors have not been able to find the back of the net, let alone pick up the win, in their last three games in a running. With an offensive record that bad, you can count on Corinthians to be the ones to break the deadlock by all means.
