Fluminense vs Fortaleza Prediction
Fluminense had taken on, the already-relegated and dead-last placed Avai, the last match-day. Still, the team had to settle for a 1-1 draw.
Fortaleza meanwhile, secured a win on the road against Goias, with a 1-2 scorecard the previous game week.
The game has all the potential to turn into a goal-riot. Both teams are in need of points, and hosts Fluminense are in urgent need of it. They have nothing to lose, and everything to gain with wins in these next two fixtures. It really is the perfect recipe for the match to have goals in plenty.
The urgency arises for Fluminense due to their current position in the table, which would result in them missing out on a spot in the Sudamericana. They have two match-days to climb one spot higher, and the desperate lot will do anything to attain their objective.
On the other hand, Fortaleza can play a bit relaxed, as a Sudamericana berth is already ensured. They do have the potential to make it to the Libertadores if they manage to win the next two games.
Likely, expect at least three goals between these teams, as they go after their targets. The fact that there’s nothing to lose for these clubs further enhances the chance for goals.
