Fortaleza vs Figueirense – Brazilian Serie B : The leader Fortaleza hosts Figueirense that is trying to get into the top 4
On a match of the 25th round of the Brazilian Serie B.
Fortaleza is trying to react after a terrible loss away from home to Goiás, where Rogério Ceni’s team lost by 3-1, but still,
the team is isolated in the lead of the league with a 6-points advantage over the 2nd place. Of the last 5 matches played, they have won 3 and lost 2, having scored 9 goals and conceded the same 9.
As hosts, Fortaleza have their best record, having gotten 28 points, winning 9 matches, drawing 1 and being defeated only in 2. The team is unbeaten for 4 matches at the Castelão, with 3 victories and 1 draw.
Figueirense is coming off a victory away from home on the derby against Avaí, where the team won by the minimum margin and with that they are now much closer to the top 4.
Now the team sits in 6th place with 37 points, 2 points behind the first team inside the top 4. They are unbeaten for 3 matches, getting 2 victories and 1 draw.
As visitors, they have the 2nd best record, having conquered 22 points, which makes them complicated visitors, since they have won 6 matches, drew 4 and have only lost 2, having scored 19 goals and only having conceded 12.
This is a great match, between two strong teams, with Fortaleza having the best record at home and Figueirense having the 2nd best record away from home, which makes this a very tight match and with all the ingredients to be an exciting one.
I’ll stay away from all the favouritism assigned to Fortaleza, despite them being isolated leaders and having a great record at home,
because I saw them struggle too much on their last couple of matches at home, starting off losing against Londrina and only turning things around after the opponents were a man down.
Well, they don’t inspire me confidence precisely for this match,
since they are facing a complicated Figueirense and that likes to play away from home, getting 2/3 of their points on the competition away from home, so this is a way too balanced match to trust Fortaleza’s favouritism, even because these odds have no value.
Fortaleza vs Figueirense – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I see value, as it has been usual on the competition, on the “Over 2 Goals” line. I always look for this market on this competition and on the matches of this round,
this is the one that offers me more confidence and value, because, as I’ve quoted, these are strong teams
and I can’t expect a Figueirense different from the entire competition only in this match, even against the leaders, expecting they will abuse the counter-attacks and the spaces offered by Fortaleza, that are plenty when they play at home,
even due to their need of getting points at home. That way, I see goals happening here, and even a 2-0 for Fortaleza, in case Figueirense come into this match scared and oppressed, would return my stake, so I see a lot of value and safety in this bet.
