São Paulo FC vs Ceará SC Preview 15/10/2021
On Thursday night, Sao Paulo and Ceara meet at the Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo, as both teams look to kick-start their Brazilian Serie A campaigns.
Sao Paulo have experienced an inconsistent league campaign so far, as they have taken 30 points from their 25 Serie A outings so far this season. Hernan Crespo’s team has won just one of their previous eight league games.

However, they have drawn their last five matches after a 0-0 draw against Cuiaba. The draw followed a familiar low-scoring trend, as Sao Paulo’s previous five league games have produced under 2.5 goals.
The home team are unbeaten in their previous six Serie A matches on home soil, recording two wins and four draws.
A 1-1 draw in their last home game means that their last three Serie A games at home have finished all square. Those recent three straight draws have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in all three matches.
Like their hosts, Ceara have experienced an inconsistent Serie A campaign and are currently a point and place behind Sao Paulo in the standings.
However, Ceara have played two fewer matches than the home team.A win could see the visitors move into the Copa Sudamericana qualification spots in Serie A.
The visitor’s recent form in the Brazilian top-flight has hindered their efforts to climb into the league’s top-12. In fact, Ceara head into this game on the back of just one win in their previous nine outings in the league.
A 3-1 defeat at Atletico Mineiro last time out ended a run of three straight clean sheets in the Brazilian top-flight, though.
Ceara’s recent away record in Serie A has also been poor, as they have failed to win any of their previous 11 league games on their travels.
With very little between these teams in terms of league position, it is not a major surprise that PlusBet.net predicts that this encounter will finish in a low-scoring draw.
1 – 1
