Fortaleza to Win

The first match between these two teams was very close and exciting and the second leg should be as close as the first one, especially since CRB is not hosting the game. Still, Fortaleza is the better team and doing well in Serie A and we don’t expect them to miss this chance to get to the quarter-finals of Copa do Brasil, so our prediction is for Fortaleza to win this game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Four of the last five five head-to-head meetings between CRB and Fortaleza have gone over 2.5 total goals, so there’s no reason to expect anything else in their next game. Furthermore, CRB has averaged 2.93 goals per game in Serie B this season, which is the highest average in the league, and Fortaleza averaged 2.31 goals per game in the top flight so far.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since we expect to see at least three goals in this game, we also expect both teams to score in the game. This already happened in three of the last five games between CRB and Fortaleza, so it’s clear that these two teams can play games that end up with goals in both nets, which also happened in the first leg a week ago.

CRB vs Fortaleza preview: Can CRB stage an upset here?

The first-leg result between these two teams suggests that we are in for a very exciting and close duel in the rematch. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams now:

CRB

With one loss in the last eight matches in Serie B, CRB is doing well in that competition. The team is currently sitting in the fifth spot in the standings, one point away from a spot that leads to Serie A and five points away from the top team in the league. CRB also reached the Top 16 phase of Copa do Brasil and even though they’ve lost the first leg to Fortaleza 2-1, they will play the second leg at home and have reasons to be optimistic.

Fortaleza

The loss to Ceara in a city derby over the weekend certainly stings, but Fortaleza is having an amazing season so far. The team that avoided relegation last season thanks to a better goal difference is currently third in Serie A and they are just five points away from the very top. Fortaleza also has a good chance to reach the quarter-finals of the Brazilian cup if they can defend their advantage from the first leg against CRB.
