Fortaleza vs Sport Recife
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 9 September 2020
Kick-off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Presidente Vargas.
The Club of the Youth used to be one of the great teams in the Serie A, but lately they have shown some tendency to underperform. They have secured a total of just two wins this season, and both had come against recently promoted as well as the weakest squads in the league.
As such, it goes without saying that they will be determined to make his upcoming fixture count, especially because it’s against a side that had been promoted to the top flight just this last summer.
However, despite being newcomers, Leao have held their ground quite admirably, and it’s not going to be easy for Rogerio Ceni’s men this match-day.
Expect a fierce encounter between the two, and goals from both teams are the basic expectations as these two take the pitch.
Fortaleza vs Sport Recife: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Club of the Youth have a 100% winning record at home against this opponent.
- In fact, every single overall meeting so far has ended in a victory for whoever hosted the game – including two wins that had come via penalty shootouts.
- The last time these two had clashed at this venue, the hosts won via penalties in the Copa do Nordeste.
- Five of the preceding seven overall encounters saw the home teams scoring two or more goals.
Fortaleza vs Sport Recife: Prediction
Ceni’s men have been one of the weakest teams this season in the Serie A, and have been consistently conceding goals in plenty in recent fixtures.
In fact, except for their two fixtures against two of the worst teams in the league, the team has totally failed to showcase any kind of spark in this edition of the contest.
Likely, Jair Ventura’s men who are on a two-match winning run will try to take advantage of this fact. They have scored two or more goals in their last two games, and are also in contention for a Libertadores spot.
Expect the Club of the Youth to concede quite a few goals this match-day.
However, previous h2h clashes have been predominantly in favor of the home teams, and at this stadium, Ceni’s men do have a 100% winning record. Moreover, they also do have the confidence that they are taking on a newly promoted squad.
For the reasons, expect Fortaleza to find the back of the net as well.
