Internacional 2/3 to beat Fortaleza in Sunday’s Brazilian Serie A matchup
Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: Internacional win
Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport
With a real chance to extend on their recent purple patch this weekend, title-chasers Internacional will host a struggling Fortaleza late on Sunday night.
Starting with the hosts, only continuing on what has been a hugely impressive run of form since opening the New Year, Internacional still find themselves mixing it in the title picture. In their 29 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded 15 wins, eight draws and six defeats, scoring 44 and conceding 26 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 53 and opening this weekend’s fixtures sat second in the table, they also sit just three points adrift of league leaders Sao Paulo. As for their recent run of results, Internacional were last seen securing a 1-0 win against Goias and they have now won each of their last five Serie A matchups on the bounce. More impressive, along with enjoying a three-match winning run on home soil, they have conceded just a single goal in over 450 minutes of action.
As for the visitors, still struggling to pick up maximum points, Fortaleza are in the midst of an extended blip and are battling it out at the foot of the table. In their 29 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded seven wins, 11 draws and 11 defeats, scoring 24 and conceding 26 in return. Along with collecting just a points tally of 32 and holding a three-point buffer from dropping into the relegation zone, it should also be noted that Fortaleza hold the second-worst attacking record in Brazil’s top-tier. As for their recent run of results, Sunday’s guests are in the midst of a seven-match winless run in Serie A and they have recorded just a single victory in any of their last 14 contests across all formats. Given the huge gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a home victory this weekend.
