Fortaleza – Oeste FREE PICKS
Fortaleza and Oeste meet at Estádio Governador Plácido Aderaldo Castelo, in a match for the 12 th round of Serie B. These two teams have never met before, so this will be their first direct match. In this match the home factor may be decisive, as the Fortaleza presents considerable differences in their results at home and as a visitor.
The home team is currently in the 1 st position of the league, with 26 points won, after 8 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against San Bento, by (2-1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Brasil de Pelotas, by (2-0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 12 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses at their stadium.
In this competition, he has won the last 6 home matches. Their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. There is 1 period that stands out in the last 17 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 5 of their 13 goals between minutes (76′-90 ‘).
The Fortaleza is a team that never won the B Series of the Brazilian Championship, its best record being two second places, in 2002 and 2004. In the Cearense Championship this year, the team finished as runner-up after being defeated by an aggregate result of 4-2 for the rival Ceará. In Serie B of the Brazilian Championship of 2018, the team is in the lead of the competition, four points ahead of the classified. In the last five games that Fortaleza played in their stadium, in four the team from Ceará did not suffer goals and managed to score more than 1.5 goals. We believe that this pattern will repeat itself again, mainly due to the quality that Fortaleza has shown both defensively and offensively, as well as the weakness of its adversary.
The away team is currently in the 15 th position of the league, with 12 points won, after 2 wins, 6 draws and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Sampaio Corrêa, by (2-0). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Criciuma, by (2-2). This is a team that usually shows similar results, at home and abroad, so it is not affected by the home team, as in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses in away matches; against 6 wins, 6 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. In the last 6 away matches for the championship the West has 3 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 3 points out of 18 possible.
For this competition, they have not won any of the last 6 away matches. They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 11 games in this competition, he never got the comeback in the 6 games in which he suffered the first goal.
The Oeste is a club that never managed to win the title of the Brazilian Championship of Serie B, but it won the title of the Brazilian Championship of the C Series in 2012. Its last good campaign was in this season of 2018, in which it was runner-up of the Paulista A2 Championship. In the Brazilian Championship of the B Series of 2018, the team is in the fifteenth position and that is especially due to its campaign in the away matches, since the team has not managed to do good results in this condition, counting on three defeats and three draws, so he has yet to win any game in the status of visitor. We believe that the West will feel many difficulties again to win away from home, because, in addition, it will play in the terrain of the leader of the competition, for which the Fortaleza is the big favorite.
