Football – Brazil – Serie A Betting Tips

There’s just the one match being played in the Brazilian top flight on Monday night but nevertheless, an important one as both Fluminense and Ceara are currently embroiled in a relegation battle at the bottom of Serie A. Read on for our betting tips…

Fluminense are continuing their dramatic slide down the top flight league ladder as the hosts slumped to a heavy 3-0 defeat away at Palmeiras last time out which became their fourth loss in the last six matches overall.

Although Flu recorded a much needed 1-0 home win over Atletico Mineiro back in October, they’ve since lost three of their subsequent four matches with defeats incurred against Santos, Vasco da Gama and the aforementioned Palmeiras.

Fluminense hold a home record of  8-4-5 16/11 but they come into this clash without a win at the Maracana in their last two matches which were a defeat to Vasco da Gama and a draw with Sport Recife.

Ceara are currently hovering just above the relegation zone with a slender point separating them from the bottom four ahead of their important encounter with Fluminense, and although they registered recent back-to-back wins against ruzeiro and Atletico Mineiro, they’re without a win from their last three in Serie A.

The visitors have lost their last two away matches at Sport Recife 1-0 and Bahia 2-1 while grabbing a point at home in a creditable 1-1 draw with third placed Internacional, but with a home record of  3-4-10  12/20 so far on their travels, it’s hard to see how they’ll get anything here.

However, Fluminense are missing several key players including injured leading goalscorer Pedro (10 goals) and suspended midfielder Jadson, so Ceara may just nick a point here, especially with forward Arthur (7 goals) and creative midfielder Carvalho (4 goals, 3 assists) in their ranks.

The betting tips suggest using a handicap play on the visitors.
