Palmeiras to Win

In the last five head-to-head duels between these teams, Palmeiras has failed to notch a win. Still, the guests are currently in such a great form that anything other than a win for Palmeiras could be construed as a surprise. After all, Palmeiras is on a nine-game winning streak in all competitions at the moment.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

All five previous matches between Sao Paulo and Palmeiras have gone under 2.5 total goals, so it’s safe to assume that we are in for another low-scoring game between these two teams. In addition to this, Sao Paulo averaged 2.00 goals per game so far in the league, while Palmeiras is much better with an average of 2.85 goals per game in Serie A.

Both Teams to Score – No

We have seen both teams score in just one of the previous five head-to-head matches between Sao Paulo and Palmeiras, so we don’t expect both teams to score in this game either. Furthermore, both teams have scored in 33% of all Sao Paulo games in the league this season, while the same is true for 54% of all Palmeiras matches in Serie A so far.

Sao Paulo vs Palmeiras preview: Can Palmeiras keep on winning?

While the home team is struggling in the league, the guests are sitting at the top of the standings right now. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their upcoming duel:

Sao Paulo

One of the biggest teams in Brazil has been struggling in the league this season since they are currently in the relegation zone with just two wins in the first thirteen games. That being said, both of those wins have come recently, in the last four matches. Meanwhile, Sao Paulo also won the first leg of Copa do Brasil Top 16 round against Vasco da Gama and they’ve reached the quarter-finals of Copa Libertadores after eliminating Racing Club. Luciano and William are the only injured players at the club right now.

Palmeiras

The leading team in Serie is currently in such a great form since they’ve won the last seven games in the league. Overall, Palmeiras has ten wins, one draw, and two losses, and they are three points ahead of the next team, which is Atletico Mineiro. Palmeiras also reached the quarter-finals of Copa Libertadores with a couple of wins over Universidad Catolica, so they are still in position to defend their title in this competition. Adriano, Lunan, and Menino are currently on the injury list and will miss the upcoming match.
