Fortaleza is a little-known Brazilian club that does not have significant regalia in the local arena. Now the team is among potential contenders for relegation. The Tricolors are only three points ahead of the relegation zone. Anderson Moreira's charges have not known the taste of victory for seven rounds in a row and show a weak level of game organization. This is especially true for attacking actions (24 goals scored, the second worst result in the elite). Fortaleza's coaching staff works with an experienced team - the average age of players is 29. There is no need to talk about the prospects of such a team. The leaders of the modest collective are Wellington Paulista, Osvaldo, David, Paulao, and Juninho.
The upcoming match will bring together two teams from different poles of the tournament standings, but they have the same desire to win. It is important for the Porto Alegre club to win if it wants to continue the fight for the title. Three points scored will improve Fortaleza’s prospects for survival in the elite. However, the hosts seem to be the clear favorites. They are in excellent shape and should prove their advantage on the pitch without any problems.
Prediction for the match: Internacional to win
