Stadium: Placido Aderaldo Castelo (Fortaleza)
Ceara will face Internacional in round 24 of the Brazilian championship. A rather exciting encounter awaits us. Both teams are pretty ambitious, especially the guests. The bookmakers do not have a clear favorite, believing that the opponents have roughly equal chances for the final success.
After six games without a win, Ceara finally won last time out. On home soil, the Black and Whites beat Chapecoense 1-0, with Jael scoring the game’s only goal from the penalty. At the start of Matchday 24, Ceara are in 12th place, which means they are in the South American Cup zone. However, Sao Paulo, America, and Juventude are breathing down Ceara’s neck, and after the 24th matchday, it’s not sure that the future hosts will remain in the South American Cup zone. Ceara have the third-best home statistics in the division, +6=4-1 in 1 game, better than only Atletico Mineiro and Palmeiras.
While Ceara won the last round after a 6-match unbeaten streak, Inter mirrored that with a defeat to Atletico Mineiro after an 8-match unbeaten streak. The series has brought the Red closer to the top-6, losing to Corinthians and Bragantino, the two teams in the top-6, by just two points. Should they beat the Ceara, the Colorados will likely beat one of their direct rivals and qualify for the Copa Libertadores on their own. Inter have the 6th best away record in the division, +4=5-3, 14:13 goal difference.
