Ceara vs Fortaleza for the Brazilian Serie A championship match on Saturday at Castelão Stadium.
The home team is currently in the thirteenth position with fourteen points won. Ceará has been a very irregular set throughout this season, alternating with good and bad results. This classic makes this game extremely important for the team, and this made the return to training of William Oliveira more premature, he had nose surgery. Should use a face mask, but this situation is not yet defined.
Coach Enderson Moreira is hoping to count on him as he considers him to be an essential player in the team. In the previous round, Ceará was defeated by Internacional by 1-0, they now have an excellent opportunity to get back to winning ways.
For this match against Fortaleza, Coach Enderson Moreira beyond the doubt of the use of William also continues with uncertainties about Thiago Carleto, Rick and Romário, who throughout the week did not participate in training.
Fortaleza came from an evolutive course with (two wins and a draw) but was interrupted in the previous round loss at home to Corinthians 3-1. Fortaleza is making a path without glow, and this is not a surprise, it is within what was expected by the quality of its squad, which in reality is average.
The coach Rogério Ceni has achieved excellent results in this classic, he played with Ceará four times at the helm of Fortaleza winning twice and drawing the rest. However, Fortaleza has been experiencing a lot of difficulties in away matches this season.
For this match against Ceará, the coach Rogério Ceni has doubts about the use of Romarinho, besides that all the squad is available.
There is a great rivalry between these two teams, and at this moment, both want to escape from the relegation zone. In this game, the home factor can be decisive.
