With a win over Avai on Tuesday at Arena Castelao, Ceara may once again qualify for the Copa Sudamericana.
Vozao has gone undefeated in 11 straight home games across all competitions, although Avai has two more victories at home and is two spots ahead of them in the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A standings.
Betting Sites Ceara vs Avai
Ceara responded with two goals in five minutes before putting the game to bed in the second half, winning 3-1. Ceara’s weekend match against Corinthians seemed to be the wake-up call they needed to get their game together.
This team has a history of coming back from deficits; in their last four games where they had given up the first goal, they have only lost one.
They have been much more effective in those areas recently, as evidenced by their last three victories in all competitions, which have been won by a combined score of 7-1. The manager Marquinhos Santos has asked his team to utilize more speed out wide and be able to sustain more intensity.
Santos must find solace in the fact that his squad has recently completed the majority of its games, winning their past three games in which they took the lead after dropping six points earlier this season from winning positions.
Too much complacency and underestimating their share of opponents have occasionally held them back domestically this season, as evidenced by their string of four consecutive draws against teams that are currently ahead of them in the standings (Coritiba, Goias, Cuiaba and Atletico Goianiense).
Vovo will welcome Avai to their home ground for the fourth time on Tuesday. In the previous two of their league encounters with Avai, Vovo has won without scoring.
Time da Raca defeated Santos 1-0 on Saturday after snapping a four-match losing streak with an outstanding defensive performance. They limited Santos to just two shots on goal. Avai has allowed the second-most goals in the domestic league so far this year, so defending with the poise and organization we saw from them last weekend has been uncommon.
They had not won in back-to-back road games going into this upcoming encounter, losing to Fluminense and Bragantino by combined scores of 6-0.
The last time they had preserved a clean sheet during this domestic season before their shutout on Saturday was when they were winning 1-0 against Botafogo away from home in the middle of June.
It is a success for Eduardo Barroca and his team to be 11th in the table after getting promoted over the previous season, although not always playing with a sharp back end in every game.
We anticipate Vozao to win, especially considering their consistency at Castelao. Ceara at home are typically a good bet to win something, and when you consider how bad Avai have been this season along the backline, we expect Vozao to prevail.
