Fortaleza will be taking on visiting club Santos at Estádio Governador Plácido Castelo in the Serie A game on Sunday.
Fortaleza have really been misfiring in recent times. Their goals record stands at just 3 vs opposition teams over their previous six matches. In those games, Fortaleza have also seen the number of goals that have gone against them come to 8.
A run of accomplished showings from the Santos defenders has seen their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their last 6 clashes overall. In that period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 6. However, we must now wait to see if such a trend might persist in this next match or not.
Santos are dangerous enough to breach the defence of this Fortaleza side, although that probably shouldn’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end. We can see a close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Fortaleza at the end of the 90 minutes. We’ll have to see what happens.
