CE Forca e Luz America Natal: Preview and Prediction

America Natal have taken just one point from their last three Brazil. Campeonato Potiguar matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. America Natal are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions CE Forca e Luz should prove no easy feat either – America Natal haven’t won against any Brazil. Campeonato Potiguar leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

CE Forca e Luz have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. CE Forca e Luz dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Brazil. Campeonato Potiguar’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

CE Forca e Luz are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about CE Forca e Luz and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in CE Forca e Luz’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, America Natal are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when America Natal took a point away from CE Forca e Luz (1-1 draw).

Notably, CE Forca e Luz’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. CE Forca e Luz have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Brazil. Campeonato Potiguar away matches, including against some much weaker teams than America Natal, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to America Natal getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though America Natal are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), CE Forca e Luz hold the best away record in the Brazil. Campeonato Potiguar (W8 D2 L1). America Natal’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with CE Forca e Luz’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the CE Forca e Luzns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 CE Forca e Luz win at 15/2 with bet365.
