Despite their positions in the Brasileiro’s bottom half, Goias and Ceara both have excellent unblemished runs heading into their meeting on Sunday.
The hosts drew a late draw at bottom-placed Fortaleza in midweek, while the visitors continued their impressive run with a resounding victory against America Mineiro on Wednesday.

Goias Vs Ceara Tips and Prediction
Goias has only lost one game in the seven that have followed in all competitions after gaining just two points in the first four matchdays of the 2022 Brasileiro season, during a five-game losing skid.
Six of these games have occurred in the league, with three of them ending in victories, placing Sunday’s opponents in 13th place going into matchday 11.
As a result, the freshly promoted side is full of confidence and energy as they prepare for their weekend encounter against Ceara, following their stunning triumph against Fortaleza on Thursday evening.
Goias started the competition as underdogs, despite the fact that their opponents were at the bottom of the Brasileiro table, and were outplayed for much of the first half at the Estadio Castelao.
However, after going behind 1-0 in the first half, Jair Ventura’s squad fought back in the second half and equalized four minutes from time via Pedro Raul.
Ventura will be hoping that his squad can build on that momentum this weekend at the Estadio da Serrinha in order to keep up their strong run and avoid relegation in the first half of the season.
In recent league action, the team has drawn with Flamengo, Santos, and Sao Paulo, with victories against Fortaleza and America Mineiro on Wednesday allowing them move to 12th place ahead of matchday 11 this weekend, putting them equal on points with Sunday’s hosts.
Despite having their backs against the wall following the departure of their head coach, the visitors will take heart from their division-leading away record so far in the 2022 Brasileiro season, with 11 of their 13 points coming on the road, and as a result, they remain a difficult opponent for Goias to face at the Estadio da Serrinha.
Given that both of these teams have recently produced good results by razor-thin margins, Sunday’s matchup is expected to be a close one.
As a result, we should expect Goias and Ceara to cancel each other out to finish equal, with little to choose between them on paper or in terms of recent great record.
