Match Preview

In this round of Brazil Serie A, Bragantino VS Ceara at home. Weverton's goal eight minutes from time earned Bragantino a 1-0 win over Atletico Goianiense last weekend, that late goal strengthening his side's grip on top spot.Braga now have a four-point lead on second-placed Athletico Paranaense, who have a game in hand, and the aim will be to remain there for the rest of the season.Monday's win over Goianiense was Bragantino's fourth in a row in the Brasileiro, giving them a return of 17 points from the first 21 on offer.The 17 goals Mauricio Barbieri's side have scored is the best return of any team in the division, though the nine goals against shows that there is still some room for improvement.Another clean sheet is certainly achievable against Ceara, though, as the Vozao have kept out the opposition just once in their opening seven matches.Ceara coach Guto on June 20, 2021


Guto Ferreira's charges have won two, lost two and drawn three of those games, most recently playing out a 1-1 draw with Sao Paulo at the weekend.Jorginho fired Ceara ahead after 23 minutes at Arena Castelao, but a Gabriel Dias own goal in the second half meant Ferreira's side had to settle for a share of the spoils.That draw did at least stretch Ceara's unbeaten run to three matches, and they are just two points off the top six, which would mean Copa Libertadores qualification.They do not have a good recent record against Bragantino, however, having lost the last two encounters, including a 2-1 loss when the sides most recently met in January.


Bragantino possible starting lineup:Cleiton; Weverton, Bruno, Ortiz, Edimar; Evangelista, Raul; Artur, Claudinho, Helinho; Ytalo.


Ceara possible starting lineup:Richard; Dias, Messias, Lacerda, Pacheco; Sobral, Marlon; Lima, Jorginho, Mendoza; Mineiro.
