Ultimately, neither team arrives with any great momentum behind them and have been below par for quite some time now. Nonetheless, for all their struggles in recent weeks and over the entire season, Corinthians have remained a powerful force on their own patch, losing just 2 of their 16 matches there, winning 8 times in the process and taking that into account, they should be able to give a Sao Paulo outfit that’s had the more impressive campaign overall a run for their money.
Calling a result looks difficult in this one and it could go either way but instead, great value looks set to be found in backing both nets to be hit. Each party will be playing with an attacking style as they chase the win and action is normally found in this fixture, with 5 of the previous 7 clashes between the two seeing goals at either end. 3 of Corinthians’ last 4 matches have also featured both sides scoring and we can envisage that sequence being built upon in a 2-2 draw.
This match up looks like one of the standout games in Serie A this weekend and it should be very entertaining to watch. Both teams have talented attacking players in abundance and with it not in either’s nature to sit back, an open and end to end 90 minutes should be in order.
All things considered, backing both teams to score looks the best way to play as far as the betting is concerned and is exactly where our money is going at current prices. Santos are scoring goals for fun on home soil but with Internacional a potent force themselves, it’s hard to see either team keeping a clean sheet and a 2-2 draw that would build on a run that has seen both nets hit in 3 of Internacional’s last 4 games looks on the cards.
Ultimately, Palmeiras look just as strong, if not stronger, than they were last year and this isn’t a match we can envisage them dropping points in. Though they are listed as the visitors in this clash, they’ll likely have more of the crowd in the neutral venue and that’s just one of the numerous factors in their favour on Saturday.
All things considered, we’re more than happy to back a Palmeiras win to nil and feel it provides excellent value at current prices. Palmeiras are stronger than Botafogo in all areas, arrive the fresher of the two and shouldn’t be given many issues in running out victors, with a 1-0 Palmeiras win appearing to be on the cards.
The hosts head into this as clear favourites based on form, momentum and head to head record at Vila Belmiro. On top of this, we have to say Fluminense struggled badly to pull off results on travels in the previous term of Serie A.
Tricolor won 3, drew 4 and lost as many as 12 of 19 away fixtures in the league last season. They are up against in-form Santos who shocked one of main title candidates Gremio in the inaugural round. Anything but a clean sheet win for the hosts wouldn’t be a surprise here.
