Fortaleza Prediction – Can Fortaleza hold up the leaders?

Despite holding home advantage in Wednesday night’s clash against Flamengo, Wednesday night’s hosts, Fortaleza, are expected to have their work cut out as they take on the Brazilian top flight league leaders.

Fortaleza were dealt a 1-0 loss away from home at Vasco da Gama on the weekend which became their third defeat on the trot on the road, so no doubt they’ll be relieved to be at least on home turf for this tough fixture.

The hosts have won just 2 of their last 8 matches overall in Serie A which were both picked up on home turf with wins over 13th placed Botafogo 1-0 and bottom club, Chapecoense 2-0, but they’ll be facing much tougher opposition in the shape of Flamengo this evening.

Fortaleza possess an inconsistent looking home record of 6-1-5 13/10 so far this term, with only Chapecoense (7 defeats), losing more home matches than Fortaleza in the Brazilian top flight so far this season.

Flamengo Prediction – Can Flamengo extend lead at top?

Having won 11 of their last 12 matches overall in Serie A, the chances of Flamengo extending their lead at the top of the Brazilian top flight looks extremely likely here as the visitors are in excellent form right now, and hold an 8-point buffer at the top of the division.

The one blot on Flamengo’s recent copy-book was that they dropped two points when they were held to a 0-0 draw at home by 5th placed Sao Paulo, but it’s had little effect on the overall landscape of the Brazilian top flight as Flamengo hold an 8-point cushion ahead of 2nd placed Palmeiras prior to these Wednesday night fixtures.

An away record of 7-3-3 21/11 includes 6 wins on the trot heading into this clash, with Flamengo scoring a total of 15 goals for and conceding just 2 in reply in what has been an excellent turn of form for the visitors on the road.

Jorge Jesus’s side now seem to be moving up through the gears and they look a formidable outfit at the moment and will be hard to stop I fancy.


Key-Facts – Fortaleza v Flamengo

  • Fortaleza have won just 2 of their last 8 matches overall in Serie A
  • Only Chapecoense have lost more home matches than Fortaleza this term
  • Flamengo have won their last 6 away matches on the trot


Betting Tips Verdict

Fortaleza will be up against it here despite being at home while Flamengo seem to be on a roll.
