Fortaleza vs Sao Paulo
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 14 November 2020
Kick-off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
The Faith Team have three games in hand, and they still are just three points away from securing a place at the top of the table. They also are one of the only three teams in the whole competition to stay unbeaten in the past five match-days.
Going on, the Lion of the Pici have recently entered a rough patch, and have been struggling to get out of it. On top of that, they also do have a terrible h2h record against this rival in the past few years.
Likely, expect Sao Paulo to have the upper hand this Saturday at the Castelao.
Fortaleza vs Sao Paulo: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Fernando Diniz’s men scored three or more goals in the last two games.
- They are unbeaten in the past six fixtures, and also had won three of the previous five.
- It’s been 14 years since the hosts have won at this venue.
- The latest encounter at this venue had ended in a 3-3 draw.
Fortaleza vs Sao Paulo: Prediction
Rogerio Ceni’s men are on a three-match losing run, and they had conceded six goals in the process. They are also on a six-match winless run in h2h meetings, and had conceded six goals from the last two such matches alone.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a three-game winning run, and they remained unbeaten in ten of their last eleven overall match-ups. And this sole loss had come in the Copa Sudamericana.
Taking these observations into account, expect Sao Paulo to win at least one of the halves this weekend.
However, understand that they were winless in eight of their former ten road trips, and they had also conceded two or more goals in six of their preceding ten away games.
Meanwhile, the Lion of the Pici were unbeaten in 22 of their last 25 home appearances.
As such, it’s expected that Fortaleza will score at least once this weekend.
