Fortaleza vs Avai (By: Enzo)
After two back to back defeats away from home, Fortaleza reacted much better in front of own fans in a 2:1 victory over Cruzeiro in the last round played.
It was almost a month ago, before the international break, in quite a balanced game where both teams had a similar number of chances but the efficiency of Andre Luis who scored two goals for the home team was enough.
The team is now just two points above the red zone and surely are awaiting this game as a great chance for a three-pointer and another detachment from the relegation zone.
Avai couldn't look more competitive in their visit to Palmeiras in the previous round, as they suffered 2:0 loss.
The team tried to attack in some phases and had some decent moves, however, it was too little to remain competitive against such a strong team.
A goal in each halftime was enough for Palmeiras, as Avai now has three matches without a single goal scored. Additionally, they are yet to win in the new season with nine rounds played so far - having four draws and five defeats.
Everything speaks here in favor of Fortaleza and Avai will really have a hard time staying undefeated.
They are barely scoring at the moment and with the ball movement they have, this will be kind of a mission impossible against a quite firm Fortaleza at home. The hosts should prevail easy or difficult in this one, with the home victory having value at the moment.
