Fortaleza vs Cruzeiro Match Preview
Cruzeiro travel to Fortaleza for their Matchday 9 clash on the back of a three-match unbeaten streak, where they held off Sao Paulo (1-1) and Corinthians (0-0) in Serie A and beat Fluminense (on penalties after a 2-2 draw) in Copa do Brasil.
Raposa have thus proven themselves a tough nut to crack and we’ll surely see them in a great mood once again, despite their struggles to keep it together at the back away from home. They’ve both scored and conceded on all of their last five trips and we do feel this could be another such occasion in the making.
Fortaleza have, on the other hand, struggled to impress on the road and now come into the match with three narrow losses behind them, where they dropped points at Flamengo (2-0), Gremio (1-0), and conceded a very late winner at Athletico PR (1-0) which saw the rivals proceed to the Copa do Brasil Quarter-finals.
Leao have proven themselves just as tough or even tougher to score against at Estadio Governador Placido Aderaldo Castelo and this shapes the mid-week contest as another narrow occasion in the making as well.
We will thus stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils in Fortaleza and going for a Draw at 11/5 with bet365 looks like a great approach to the fixture, seeing both sides largely struggling to turn clashes their way.
We will also go for few goals and Under 2.5 Goals FT at 4/7 with Unibet feels like a banker bet, which has seen many big hitters lumping already. We’ve seen such occasions in both of the last two head-to-head clashes too, which adds to such a belief now.
