Fortaleza vs Cruzeiro Prediction & Preview

Preview

As the Brazil Serie A heats up, football aficionados are in for a midweek treat with Fortaleza hosting Cruzeiro at the Estádio Governador Plácido Aderaldo Castelo on Wednesday, 17th April. This clash is not just another fixture; it's an early season showdown between two teams eyeing supremacy in their second round of the league.

Under the guidance of Juan Pablo Vojvoda, Fortaleza have shown promise early on, currently sitting 5th with 3 points, mirroring their opponents' start to the campaign. Cruzeiro, led by Fernando Seabra and placed 2nd due to goal difference or other criteria not detailed here, also boast a similar tally of 3 points. Both sides kicked off their campaign with victories; Fortaleza secured a commendable away win against São Paulo (1-2), while Cruzeiro edged past Botafogo in a thrilling home encounter (3-2).

The previous meetings between these two teams have always been fiercely contested affairs. In their last four head-to-head matches, Fortaleza has clinched victory twice compared to Cruzeiro's single triumph, alongside one draw. Notably though, Cruzeiro managed to upset Fortaleza in their latest encounter on this ground with a narrow 0-1 victory back in November last year.

Both teams exhibit potent attacking capabilities; Fortaleza averages 1.5 goals per game while Cruzeiro slightly edges them out with an average of 1.6 goals per match this season. However defensively speaking, Fortaleza appears more solid at home conceding an average of just 0.33 goals per game compared to Cruzeiro’s away record of conceding an average of 0.8 goals per match.

Given these statistics and considering both team's recent form - each boasting wins from their opening fixtures - spectators can anticipate a closely fought battle filled with tactical intrigue from both coaches.
