Internacional to Win at Half Time and Full Time

Although the recent history between these two teams doesn’t suggest a convincing win for Internacional, the home team has more quality and they’ve nearly missed out on winning the title last season. They are also in good form after reaching the Top 16 of the Copa Libertadores, so we expect them to come out strongly in this game and take an early lead. So, our prediction is for Internacional to win at half time and full time.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The last three games between these two teams have gone over 2.5 total goals, while we also saw eight goals in one of their matches last season. In addition to this, Internacional has been playing some high-scoring games in the Copa Libertadores this season, while Sport Recife has the potential to put up a fight and score some goals as well. With that in mind, we expect this game to go over 2.5 total goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since we expect to see some goals in this game, we also expect to see both teams scoring. This has happened in four of the last five h2h duels between Internacional and Sport Recife, so we think that this trend can continue in the first round of the new Serie A season, especially since we’ve seen both teams score in three of the last five Internacional games in all competitions.

Internacional vs Sport Recife preview: Internacional looking for a good start

Judging by the recent head-to-head history between these two teams, we can expect an exciting match. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at both teams:

Internacional

After losing the title to Flamengo by just one point last season, Internacional will be hoping to make that crucial next step in this edition of Serie A. The team from Porto Alegre is already in competitive form after securing the top spot in their Copa Libertadores group and reaching the finals of Campeonato Gaucho, which they’ve lost 3-2 on aggregate to Gremio. Boschilla and Moledo are unlikely to play in the first round due to injuries.

Sport Recife

Last season was a stressful one for Sport Recife since they’ve nearly avoided relegation thanks to having one point more than Vaso de Gama, so the team will be hoping to avoid another similar scenario this year. Sport Recife competed in the regional Campeonato Pernambucano over the past couple of months and they’ve managed to reach the final of this competition, but they eventually lost it to Nautico after two legs and penalties. Barcia, Eduardo, and Igor are injured at the moment and out of the Internacional game.
