Expert Betting Tips
Fluminense is in good form, and we doubt the Tricolour will lose this game. Ceara is on a dangerous side at the moment. After reaching the quarterfinals of the South American Cup, the Black and Whites will try to rectify the situation in the Serie A standings and break away from the relegation zone. Ceara is an away team, and the first bet on the upcoming match is a total under. As for the outcome, we wouldn't be surprised if Fluminense extended their winning streak to five games.
