Corinthians' home statistics are worrying, as they are 19th in the division with +1=2-4, 6-10 goal difference, Only Chapecoense have worst stats.
Ceará, on the other hand, is showing surprising results. This team has not lost in 11 consecutive matches. Especially they are good playing at home while away Ceará often ends their matches in a draw and rarely concedes. Just imagine this, Ceará has drawn six consecutive away matches, not only against Chapecoense and Cuiabá but also against teams such as Fluminense, Bragantino, and Internacional.
