Both teams might be struggling with the defense lately as they take on each other in hopes of making a deep run into the Copa Libertadores.
However, it must be noted that despite their struggles in overall fixtures, Fortaleza have done their best to make amends with good performances at home.
They will be hoping to pull off one such result this Friday. It is the first leg of the Round of 16 of the competition and it is in their best interest to finish off the tie in this first phase itself.
Meanwhile Estudiantes are on a losing streak at the moment and they are letting in goals in huge numbers. They have also been struggling on the road for quite some time now and they have displayed their defensive struggles in road fixtures quite severely too.
By the looks of things, anticipate a victory for hosts Fortaleza this Friday.
