VASG Vs FRTZ Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Fortaleza lose all the aura shrouding them with the club losing four fixtures on the spin.
The last couple of months in the Brazilian Serie A 2020-21 have seen Fortaleza’s entire hardwork unravel. Everything the club had done across the first half of the league has been poured cold water over with the side’s four successive defeats seeing them plummet all the way down into 13th place.
While the current appalling form makes for a cause of concern, the side has been left more disgruntled owing to the fact that they were not too long back striving for a spot in the echelons of the points tally. The side’s roof has come crashing around them, a club which has completely lost its way to sit 14 points behind top spot.
No closer to the trenches of the league than the top places, the side finds itself just a measly two points ahead of today’s opponents. With Vasco da Gama winning their first clash in five the last time around, they make a foray into today’s clash knowing they can canter their way above Fortaleza with a win today.
VASG Vs FRTZ Fantasy Probable Winner
The form both the clubs have hit will see this fixture transpire as a closely fought. Despite their plight, Fortaleza should just about manage to scram their way to a win owing to the club’s defensive setup.

Fantasy 11 Picks
Fortaleza’s Felipe Alves will be making a foray into our side as the shot stopper for today. The goal-keeper has been pristine this season, a player who has taken on the shape of a worldclass shot stopper.
He will find company in the services of Jackson de Souza, a tenacious CB who not till two weeks had seen Fortaleza emerge as one of the most stringent backlines in the league. Vasco da Gama elsewhere see us opt for the services of both their wingbacks with Neto Borges and Leo Matos both capable of sending the ball across the face of the goal.
Having provided the most number of assists for the visitors at three, the club’s chief architect, Juninho was always going to be a must have pick for us. We are partnering him up with Jose Romario Silva-de-Souza, two names capable of ripping Vasco de Gama’s jittery defence into shreds.
Laying up the ball for two goals for his club, Leonardo Gil will be our first pick from the opposition with Andrey Ramos joining him for the contest.
Completing the attacking picks from the side is their leading scorer with the nine goals, German Cano. Fortaleza will be represented by the duo of four goal man David Correia de-Fonseca and Bergson Gustavo Silveira-da-Silva who has hit home the two goals.
