Fortaleza vs Athletico PR Prediction
Fortaleza are without a win since their last 5 home games of which they lost twice. But they have never won a home game this season even though playing 5 games. Things have not been going that well in front of goal for them recently, with the side failing to score in 2 of the last 5 games.
Meanwhile, Athletico PR is on a 4-game unbeaten run in Serie A. They even won their last 2 away games in a row bagging 4 goals in total. The visitors also won 4 of their previous 5 h2h games.
We therefore envisage that an away win or draw is likely to occur this weekend.
