Back Both Teams To Score @ 1.9620/21 in Bragantino SP v Ceara SC Fortaleza

Bragantino SP v Ceara SC Fortaleza
Thursday 20:00

In Brazil last night, there was more fun than anyone expected from Fortaleza. The hosts came from behind to win 3-2 and land our BTTS bet with something to spare on both sides.

We're sticking in Brazil today and following the fortunes of another Fortaleza outfit. Ceara are headed to Serie A leaders Bragantino and we're hoping they can match their local rivals in delivering a BTTS bet.

Bragantino are top thanks to a W5-D2-L0 start to the season. On home turf, though, they are only W1-D2-L0 and the problem has been conceding goals. Those three games have finished 3-3, 2-2 and 3-1. Going back into last season, BTTS has been the right bet in 7/9 league games at Nabizao.

Last season this fixture finished 4-2 to the hosts, while Bragantino also won the reverse game 2-1. It makes sense that the home side are odds-on favourites, but Ceara should at least fancy their chances of scoring against them again. The visitors have netted on 14 of their last 15 road trips. We're backing Big Grandpa to find the back of the net and deliver on BTTS once more tonight.
