Fortaleza started the season really well going unbeaten in their opening five games but they’ve been more inconsistent in recent weeks with two wins, two draws and two losses in their last six games. Despite this they remain in fifth place in the Serie A table.
Corinthians have definitely had consistency on their side but that has meant the side drawing four of their last five games. They have struggled for goals with the side both scoring and conceding at a rate of less than a goal a game.
The two sides are both struggling to pick up wins on a regular basis this season and we think this continues in this game with the two sides playing out a low scoring draw. We can’t see many goals in this contest and considered the 0-0 scoreline but the 1-1 final score appeals a little more with Fortaleza averaging 1.8 goals per game but only keeping two clean sheets in their last six games.
The hosts have scored an average of 1.44 goals while the visitors have scored an average of 1.92 goals,which underlines the away teams superiority.
Prediction:Ichihara Chiba to win.
The hosts will have to take note of the visitors high flying form as they head into this contest.The host have scored 21 goals in their last ten matches while the visitors have scored 25 goals in the same period.
Prediction:Both teams to score with over 2.5goals.
