Venue: Estádio Ilha do Retiro.
Daniel Paulista’s men were promoted to the top flight just at the end of the last season, and they are not at all prepared to take on the heavyweights here.
Vozao meanwhile, are determined to outdo their results of last year. It really was a season to forget for the team, as they had to make do with a spot in the bottom tier. Still, it deserves to be mentioned that they displayed immense competitive spirit in avoiding being placed in the relegation zone.
As of now, all things point to them being a very tough squad to deal with. They are on an impressive winning streak at the moment, and have been scoring goals for fun.
On top of that, they are pitted against a newly-promoted team for their opener, and we can count on Ceara to post a win this Sunday.

Sport Recife vs Ceara: Prediction
Guto Ferreira’s men are on a six-game winning run, and they had won 11 of their preceding 12 overall fixtures as well. Keep note that they had also kept clean sheets in nine of their last thirteen match-ups.
Going on, they were winless in 23 of their last 24 overall games, and on the road they are on an eight-fixture winning run. They are also on a 12-match unbeaten run away from home at the moment.
Moreover, they had won the latest h2h meeting 2-1, and have lost two of those games in the last seven years.
Most importantly, Paulista’s men are about to play their first game in the top flight after getting promoted, and they are severely inexperienced. As such, expect a Ceara win this Sunday.
