Reason For Ceara CE vs Atletico Paranaense Betting Tips

Saturday’s Brazilian Serie A action sees Ceara doing battle with Athletico PR at the Estádio Castelão. An open and exciting game is expected to be in order as both sides fight for the 3 points on offer.

Coming into the season with one of the weaker squads in Serie A on paper, Ceara’s main aim for the campaign was to retain their top flight status, but it remains to be seen whether they’ll be able to do that. Indeed, the side have struggled heavily over the course of the campaign, taking just 37 points from 35 games and that has them desperately needing results in their remaining 3 matches.

Boss Adilson Batista was sacked after a 4-1 defeat at champions Flamengo in midweek and whilst spirits in home ranks are pretty low, some hope can be drawn from recent showings in front of the home crowd. The side are unbeaten in 5 home matches, winning 3 times in the process and have been strong as hosts all season, with their struggles typically coming on the road and as such, their prospects can be considered fairly bright coming into the game.

Meanwhile, it’s been an excellent campaign for Athletico PR and the visitors are showing no signs of putting their feet up despite having nothing to play for. The side are already assured of their place in next season’s Copa Libertadores after winning the Brazilian Cup earlier on in the year but still look set for a strong finish, coming into the game stationed in 5th place.

Not even the loss of hugely successful boss Tiago Nunes has been enough to derail Furacão and they’ve been fantastic in recent weeks, leaving confidence very high coming into this trip. Indeed, Athletico are unbeaten in 10 matches, winning 7 times in the process and that’s a streak they’ll be aiming to protect in Fortaleza this weekend.

Ultimately, we’re expecting this to be an exciting watch between two teams that typically play in fairly open manners. Athletico are the stronger of the two and that’s more than reflected in the table but Ceara are a strong home outfit and in desperate need of the points, they should be able to ensure it’s a competitive game.

All things considered, we think the best way to play as far as the betting is concerned is on the Both Teams to Score line. Ceara have scored in each of their last 5 home games, plunging home an average of 1.4 goals a game in the process and with Athletico having notched in their last 10 away games, it’s not hard to imagine both nets being hit, with an evenly fought 1-1 draw appearing on the cards.
