Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: Ceará double chance
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
In what is a real derby showdown late on Wednesday night, Ceara will look to cause an upset when they face off against Fortaleza at the Castelão.
Starting with the hosts, while Fortaleza might still find themselves still holding onto their spot in the top-six, they are in the midst of what has been a woeful run of form. Putting in a nightmare display last weekend and blown away thanks to a 3-0 drumming against RB Bragantino on the road, the pressure is firmly on the Tricolor. Freefalling their way down the table, Head Coach Juan Pablo Vojvoda knows that his side could face another tough test on Wednesday night. Along with suffering a 2-1 Copa do Brasil defeat against Atlético Mineiro on home soil last month, Fortaleza have failed to win any of their last five matchups across all formats, suffering four defeats. Enduring what has been arguably their worst run so far this season, it should also be noted that the midweek hosts have won just a pair of their last six contests at the Castelão.
As for the visitors, while their crosstown rivals might be in the midst of a hugely worrying run of form, Ceará should find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Skyrocketing their way up the Serie A table and now sat inside the top-10, they were also last seen over the weekend claiming a 2-1 win against Sport Recife on home soil. In fact, Vozão have now won three of their last four top-flight contests, a run highlighted by a 1-0 victory against Fluminense on October 31st. Enjoying what has been a very impressive purple patch and with just a single defeat from any of their last six outings, they will also be boosted by their most recent meeting against Fortaleza. Storming their way to a 3-1 win when they faced off against their old rivals back in August, a Ceará double chance here appears at attractive odds.
