Internacional vs Ceara Prediction & Betting tips
Almost 15 years ago, Internacional Porto Alegre won the championship in Brazil for the last time – albeit only temporarily. That year was overshadowed by a major referee scandal in which numerous results from the 2005 season were canceled and repeated. The Colorado has since lagged behind the high expectations in the Brazilian House of Lords.
In this season, the glorious old days should be linked. As the start of the season for the Red-Whites so far shows, Inter can definitely be expected in this year’s title race. After eight match days, head coach Eduardo Coudet’s team is still at the top of the table.
On the ninth game day of the Brazilian Serie A, Internacional will meet Ceara and, according to odds, is the favorite. Compared to the Colorado from Porto Alegre, the guests got off to a rather unspectacular start to the season. The point yield after eight match days is still commendable.
If you consider how weak Ceara was in last season’s away games, there are hardly any arguments that make Internacional vs. Ceara reaffirm a forecast on the guests. A tip on the home side, however, is definitely recommended after the strong start to the season.
Internacional remained at the top of the table after two draws in a row. Whether the Colorado can manage that leadership on its own remains uncertain for the time being, because Atletico-MG sits close to the championship leader’s neck. With one game less in the account, the pursuer has 15 points and could therefore overtake Internacional.
In the eight games of the current Serie A season there has been a record of 5-2-1 for the Colorado so far. Only the match against Fluminense (1: 2) was lost. Most recently, Internacional remained unbeaten five times in a row, including a point split against Palmeiras. In the domestic Estadio Jose Pinheiro Borda there were only two home bankruptcies this calendar year.
After five home wins in a row, Internacional drew against Bahia Salvador in their last home game. Surprisingly, the otherwise strong defense of the Colorado conceded two goals. If you consider that five games were already zeroed before, the offensive spectacle on the previous day was not to be expected.
Colorado coach Eduardo Coudet took over the team at the beginning of the year. During his first engagement as a coach in Brazil, the 45-year-old has been able to convince. Although the title win in the national championship was missed, Internacional, as mentioned, had a strong start to the season in Serie A.
On the offensive, the failure of striker Guerrero has been bridged well so far. Midfielder Galhardo recently moved up to the top and leads the internal scorer list with six goals. Galhardo is also expected to act as a striker on matchday nine of Serie A. There are no new failures in the Colorado roster.
Ceara can hardly complain about the season so far this calendar year. The Vozao played a strong national championship and deservedly moved into the final in. There Ceara will meet Fortaleza in October. For the time being, the focus will be on Serie A again, where Ceara is currently in tenth place in the table.
On the last game day of Serie A, Ceara suffered a narrow home defeat against Santos. For long periods it was a match at eye level, in which Vozao was definitely the team that determined the game. The black and white could not crack the strong defense of the opponent and thus remained without a goal.
Although two wins in a row were recently recorded abroad, Ceara is by no means as strong abroad as at home. Away, Vozao was after all the third worst team in the previous Serie A season. In the 19 away games of the 2019 season, Ceara only had a record of 2-3-14.
Although the performance in this calendar year should by no means be reduced, the quality in the Vozao squad is manageable. All the more serious are the failures in the upcoming away game in Porto Alegre. Coach Guto Ferreira is missing two regular players: the two full-backs Pacheco and Xavier.
To what extent these failures can be compensated cannot yet be foreseen. It is quite possible that the defense is more vulnerable than in the most recent home game against Santos. In the match between Internacional vs. Ceara therefore rather advise against making a prognosis on the guests.
