Fortaleza vs Goias Predictions & Match Preview

Fortaleza vs Goias
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 1 September 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Plácido Aderaldo Castelo (Fortaleza).

Goias will definitely need to pick up momentum in away games if they are to make a considerable jump in standings. So far, they have been comparatively far more impressive in home ties as opposed to the ones on the road.

As of now, they are in possession of a Copa Sudamericana spot but is not certain of holding on to it, considering the form the teams below them in the table are currently showing.

In that regards, a match against Fortaleza, a prominent relegation-battler, is something that will be approached with high expectations. The hosts are just one spot above the cut-off line and are under a great deal of pressure themselves. On top of that comes the desperate lot, Goias.

Fortaleza vs Goias Prediction

The hosts of the day were winless in six of their last seven overall games and lost three of their former five too. At home, they are on a losing streak of two matches, whereas their counterparts are unbeaten in their prior four match-ups, and won the last two as well. Moreover, Goias registered two or more goals in the previous two fixtures and has had the upper hand in h2h stats recently.

Taking these observations into account, the chance for the hosts to win is significantly low. But the worrying run of Goias on the road, coupled with the home advantage of Fortaleza, and the fact that the guests conceded three goals in the last h2h battle at this venue – make BTTS a very viable bet.
