Internacional vs Ceara
Brazil Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 24 July 2018
Kick-off at 00:00 UK/ 1:00 CET
Venue: Estádio José Pinheiro Borda (Porto Alegre).
Internacional gave a good account of themselves in their return to Serie A and sit at 6th on the log after 13 rounds of football.
The sucess is built on strong defensive performances and an unbeaten run from home matches. They will play their 7th home game of the campaign on Tuesday and hold a record of 4 wins and 2 draws from the previous six and 4 clean sheets to go with.
Meantime, things haven’t gone according to plan for Ceara, who are another promoted team from Serie B for the 2018 campaign.
Ceara defeated Sport Recife 1-0 last week, which is their first win of the season. Apparently, they haven’t won in any of their previous 12 league games and thus come to Porto Alegre with a record of 2 draws and 4 losses from six away games this season.
Internacional vs Ceara Head-to-head
Ceara have often got the better of Internacional in recent h2h meetings. The visitors won 5 of the last 8, drew 1 and lost 2.
This will be first Serie A meeting between the sides since 2011.
Internacional vs Ceara Prediction
The hosts are well put up at home and they are without a doubt the toughest defense in the league at this point. Moreover, they have an excellent record against teams sitting at the bottom half of the table.
Ceara struggled for wins as well as goals this season and I can’t see them find a way through Internacional on Monday night.
