Not only did a 3-2 loss at Gremio see Juventude suffer a third defeat in five league fixtures last time out, but the club from Caixas do Sul also allowed one of the few teams below them in the table to make up ground – and drag them into the relegation zone.
Jair Ventura could make changes for his first game in charge of Juventude, in order to stamp his authority on an ailing side and halt their winless run.
We say: Juventude 1-1 Ceara
While Ceara have proved a tough nut to crack on home soil, they have not travelled so well this term, and will be restricted to just a point by Juventude this weekend.
