Sao Paulo to Win

After failing to win a game in Serie A in the first nine rounds, Sao Paulo finally started to play according to their reputation and quality and won two games in a row. Meanwhile, Fortaleza is keeping their fantastic season going and they’ve also won their last two matches in the league. Still, our prediction is for Sao Paulo to win this game since they are the better team and they are playing at home. Also, they’ve won three of the last five matches against Fortaleza.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Four of the last five head-to-head matches between Sao Paulo and Fortaleza have gone over 2.5 total goals, so we expect to see something similar in their upcoming duel. That being said, Sao Paulo averaged just 1.73 goals per game in Serie A this season, but Fortaleza is doing much better in this regard with an average of 2.55 goals per game.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Just like our previous prediction, this one is also based on the recent h2h history between Sao Paulo and Fortaleza since both teams have scored in four of their last five matches. Furthermore, both teams have scored in 55% of all Fortaleza matches this season, while the same is true for 36% of all Sao Paulo games in the league.

Sao Paulo vs Fortaleza preview: Can Sao Paulo go on a winning streak?

While the home team has struggled at the start of the new Serie A season, the guests have been doing very well. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their match:

Sao Paulo

One of the biggest teams in Brazil was without a win after the first nine matches in the new Serie A season, which was truly shocking. However, it seems that Sao Paulo is getting out of this slump since they’ve won their last two games in the league, followed by a draw in the Top 16 phase of Copa Libertadores against Racing Club. In any case, Sao Paulo is slowly getting back to form, but they still have a lot of work to do. William, Miranda, and Luciano are injured and out of the next game.

Fortaleza

The team that barely avoided relegation last season is still not slowing down. Fortaleza started the new season very well and after a few matches without win, they managed to get back on track. Now, after the first eleven rounds, Fortaleza is sitting in the 4th spot in the standings, with six wins, two draws, and three losses. Also, the team is almost completely healthy with only Paulista and Jussa being out at the moment.
