Kick-off at 22:00 UK / 23:00 CET
Venue: Arena Pantanal.

Round 20 of Brazil Serie A is set for this weekend as Cuiaba play host to the rock-bottomed Fortaleza where both these sides differ by 5 points and 2 places. These two teams will be seen clashing at Arena Pantanal this Sunday.

Cuiaba is at the 17th spot on the standing with 20 points from 19 games. They won and drew 5 games each while having lost on 9 other occasions. Their struggles at the offensive end of the pitch has also been another key factor as they have netted only 14 goals so far.

The hosts will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 1-0 league loss in their previous game against Coritiba. They have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 5 goals in the process.

On the other hand, Fortaleza resides at the rock bottom closing the 20th position on the table with a mere 15 points. Of the 19 matches played, they won only thrice in the league while having drawn 6 times and have lost on 10 other occasions. Their total goals to conceding ratio stands at 15:23which hints that much improvement is needed.

In their previous fixture, the visitors drew 0-0 in the Serie A match with Santos. The strike force from Fortaleza have suffered from a lack of goals in their past 6 clashes, netting the unsatisfactory return of just 2. In those matches, they have also seen the collective goal tally of their opponents equals six.

Cuiaba vs Fortaleza Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Cuiaba won the last 2 h2hs by 1-0 margin.
  • At least one null figure is seen in their last 3 h2h matches.
  • Three out of their last five meetings have ended on ties.

Cuiaba vs Fortaleza Prediction

Cuiaba remain undefeated in their last 5 home league matches. They even won the last 2 meetings with this foe by 1-0 margin. But the hosts have not able to net in 7 games this season and that accounts to 37% of the games where they have not been able to find crucial goals.

Meanwhile, things have not been going that well in front of goal for Fortaleza recently, with the side failing to score in 3 of the last 5 games. They remain winless from the last 3 visits to Arena Pantanal.

Knowing that, we expect a home win this Sunday.
