Palmeiras to Win
While Fluminense has struggled recently since they lost three of their last five matches in the league, Palmeiras has been on a great run and they have won their last six games in the league. In addition to this, Palmeiras beat Fluminense in three of their previous five meetings and they are in a title race with Flamengo and Atletico Mineiro, so our prediction for this match is for Palmeiras to get the win.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
The last four games between Fluminense and Palmeiras have all gone under 2.5 total goals, so we expect their next game to follow the same trend and end with fewer than three goals. In addition to this, Fluminense only averaged 1.97 goals per game in the league this season. However, Palmeiras averaged 2.77 goals per game so far. Still, we don’t expect to see many goals.
Both Teams to Score – No
Since we don’t expect to see many goals in this game, we also don’t see both teams scoring in this match either. After all, both teams have scored in just one of the last five h2h matches between Fluminense and Palmeiras. Also, both teams have scored in just 42% of Fluminense matches, while the same thing is true for 55% of all Palmeiras games this season in Serie A.

Fluminense vs Palmeiras preview: Can keep the winning streak going?
In the last five matches, Fluminense has three wins and two losses, but in the last eight, they have three wins, one draw, and four losses. So, it’s clear that they’ve been rather inconsistent lately. Still, the team is currently in the eighth spot in the standings and they have a chance to climb further up the table if they can go on a good run. Ganso, Hudson, and Teixeira are on the team’s injury list and out of the upcoming game.
The last few weeks have been great for Palmeiras since the team is currently on a 5-game winning streak in the league and they’ve reignited the hope that they can get the title in Serie A this season. That being said, Atletico Mineiro is ten points ahead of them despite this recent run and with only eight games left to play, it will be a tough task to overcome them. Gomez and Piquerez are with their national selection at the moment, while Mayke and Jorge are injured.
