The CSA is a club that never managed to conquer the B Series of the Brazilian Championship, having as its most outstanding campaign three second places, being the most recent in 1983. In the Alagoan Championship this year, the team was champion by beating the CRB by 1×2 in the grand final (in the aggregate score). In Serie B of the Brazilian Championship of 2018, the team has been trying to overcome the leader Fortaleza, as it is only one point behind the opposing team. In the last five games that the CSA played at home, four scored goals and did not lose in the last three games. We believe that in this confrontation, even if he is playing against the current leader of Serie B, the CSA will take advantage of the bad moment of the Fortaleza to conquer a positive result and thus reach the leadership of the competition.
After 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses, the away team is currently in the 1 st position, with 29 points won. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Ponte Preta, by (2-0).

For the championship, Fortaleza won 11 points out of 21 possible, after 3 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in the last 7 home matches. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half-time was the 0-0 (3 out of 7 matches). Their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 15 matches in this competition, they have only 1 comeback in the 6 matches they have conceded the first goal.
The Fortaleza is a club that was already a champion of the Brazilian Serie A Championship, but several decades ago, in 1960 and 1968, in addition to having won seven titles of the Cearense Championship. In the current season of 2018, the Fortaleza was runner-up of the Cearense Championship, also leading the Brazilian Serie B Championship, but has been threatened by the CSA itself, which can reach the leadership in this day. The Fortaleza has oscillated a lot in the last games away from home, in addition, the Fortaleza failed to score goals in the last two games, showing great difficulty in its offensive sector. We believe that the Fortaleza will have offensive difficulties in this game against the CSA, which comes at a good time and has not suffered goals since two games ago.
