Ceará vs Flamengo Soccer Prediction Today
The alvinegro from Ceará, however, has not yet managed to make his fans celebrate. After losing to Santos by 2 to 0 at Vila Belmiro in the first round, he was in the goalless draw with São Paulo in the second game. Thus, the team completed the second round in the sixteenth position, the first outside the relegation zone.
The lack of goals provoked an immediate reaction of the cartolas, who negotiated the contracting of the striker Hyuri, who was leaning on Atlético-MG. He only participated in two matches this season. He should not, however, be able to act on Sunday.
Thus, coach Marcelo Chamusca should repeat the strategy he used against Sao Paulo forming the team with three defenders. He said he liked the performance presented, although the result was not expected.
Acting outside the home could be viewed as a relief by Flamengo, who on Wednesday, April 25, remained in the goalless draw against Independiente Santa Fe, of Colombia, in play for the fourth round of the group stage of the Libertadores.
The fans, who had made protests in the team’s departure for Bogota, once again showed their revolt at the arrival of the delegation to Rio de Janeiro. Do not settle for the lack of disposition of the athletes. In the last four matches, Flamengo only managed one win and drew three times. With four points, finished the second round in the third position of the Brasileirão.
However, the fans’ anger is even in relation to the situation of the club in the Libertadores. With two rounds remaining, the team still can not qualify and may have to decide their luck in the last round against River in Argentina. This recalls the situation of the 2017 season when the club were also eliminated in the final round of the group stage when losing to the also Argentinean San Lorenzo.
Just as they did after a 2-2 draw against Independiente in Rio de Janeiro, the fans again pitched the walls of the clubhouse with offenses directed at the players.
The atmosphere between the athletes and the interim coach Mauricio Barbieri continues to be turbulent, especially in relation to the striker Henrique Dourado, who after complaining about being replaced was once again removed from the team.
The midfielder Diego, who had been the main target of the protest after the first game against the Colombians, claimed injury and was conveniently out of the home match against America-MG, which ended with a 2-0 win. Far from the crowd, returned to be related in Colombia. Once again showed slow and unproductive football. He was replaced. But he is likely to be listed as a starter in Fortaleza.
Soccer Prediction of the Day Ceará vs Flamengo
Even at home, Ceará must take a defensive stance. He knows that each point won in front of teams that are technically superior can be decisive in their fight to avoid relegation. For the behavior that the Flamengo has presented, it will hardly leave with daring in search of the victory. The style of changing the ball relentlessly without taking risks until it is perceived a chance of penetration must be maintained. Avoiding defeats seems to be more important than winning wins for coach Barbieri. Thus, the guess in the tie is good option for the confrontation.
