Ceara hosts Corinthians in the Brasileiro Serie A match week 17 at the Estadio Castelao on Saturday night.
The hosts have struggled for league results this season despite their exploits in the Copa Sudamericana. In their last league game, they were beaten 2-1 by Fluminense, with Luis Otavio scoring a late consolation goal. Ceara defeated Fortaleza 1-0 in Thursday’s Copa do Brazil round of 16 second leg but went down 2-1 on aggregate.
The Vozao are in 17th place in the league table with 18 points from 16 games. They will look to shake off their recent setbacks and exit the drop zone with a win on Saturday.
Corinthians have had an overall solid season this season despite some less than flattering individual performances. They returned to winning ways in La Liga last weekend with a 1-0 win over Flamengo and benefited from an own goal early in the restart.
The Timao are second in the table with 29 points from 16 games, one point behind leaders Palmeiras. They reached the quarter-finals of the Copa Libertadores and Copa do Brazil last week and will look to keep their title ambitions alive with a win this weekend.

- There were 16 meetings between Ceara and Corinthians. The hosts have four of those games while Corinthians have won six. In between there were six draws.

Ceara vs Corinthian’s prediction
Ceara has six games without a win in the league, including five draws. However, they are unbeaten in their last ten home games in all competitions and will be looking to claim their first league home win of the season this weekend.
Corinthians’ second loss in their last 10 games in all competitions ended a two-win streak. They are in much better shape than Ceara and should win here.
