    1315

    Just two points separate Corinthians and Fortaleza in the Brazilian Serie A after 11 matchdays. Corinthians could still reach the top four, but they will need to defeat Fortaleza and find some consistency for the rest of the season.

    Corinthians have obtained 16 points from 30 possible. The Almighty go into the weekend having taken 11 points from their last 18. After a sketchy start to the season, manager Fabio Carille has righted the ship.

    Goal scoring hasn’t been plentiful for Corinthians this season. They have scored just nine times and in their last six matches, only outscored their opponents 5-2.

    Fortaleza have also had difficulty in front of goal. They have managed to score just 12 goals this term. Fortaleza are undefeated in their last three matches outscoring their opponents 6-3. They have suddenly kicked into gear but Corinthians will be a difficult task on Sunday.

    Corinthians’ away form has been shaky to start the Serie A season. The Almighty have won just once on the road collecting five points from 15 possible. Corinthians matches are regularly low scoring with their last nine finishing with under 2.5 goals scored.

    Fortaleza have strung together some good home play. They have obtained 10 points from 15 possible while posting a +3-goal difference.

    Despite Fortaleza’s good form recently and Corinthians’ lack of goalscoring, Sunday’s game should go the way of the visitors.

    Corinthians have been brilliant against Fortaleza in their last six meetings. The Almighty are undefeated in their last five matches against Fortaleza with four of those games ending in Corinthians’ wins.

    While Corinthians have not been prolific in goalscoring, they have done well against Fortaleza. The Almighty have tallied at least two goals in their last five matches against Fortaleza.

    Pedrinho leads Corinthians in goals with three. The attacking midfielder has scored exactly 33% of the team’s goals. Clayson and Vagnar Love have tallied two goals apiece for the club.

    Fortaleza are led by attacking midfielder Wellington Paulista who has tallied three goals. Teammates Andre Luis and Marcinho have scored two apiece for the side.

    Although Fortaleza have hit form in recent matches with two wins and a draw, Corinthians have got the best of them in their last five meetings.

    Corinthians should continue their great run of form against Fortaleza as they pick up a big win. Expect Corinthians to once again score at least two goals versus Fortaleza.
