Palmeiras to Win

Despite the fact that Fortaleza is the most pleasant surprise of the Serie A season so far, we can’t overlook the quality and current form in which the home team is right now. Palmeiras has been undefeated in the last ten games in all competitions and nine of those games have been wins. So, our prediction is for Palmeiras to win this game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Two of the last four head-to-head matches between Palmeiras and Fortaleza have gone over 2.5 total goals, so we could be seeing a high-scoring game here. After all, Palmeiras averaged 2.64 goals per game so far in Serie A, while Fortaleza averaged 2.43 goals per game in the league this season. So, we expect these two teams to combine for at least three goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in 50% of games played by both Palmeiras and Fortaleza and since we expect to see at least three goals in this game, we also expect both teams to score. That being said, we haven’t seen this happen in the previous four meetings between these two teams, so be cautious with this bet.

Palmeiras vs Fortaleza preview: The derby of the round in Brazil

This truly is the derby of the round since both teams are at the very top of the standings in Serie A. So, let’s take a closer look at the teams ahead of this important game:

Palmeiras

The team from Sao Paulo broke their 7-game winning streak in Serie A in the last round when they drew against their city rivals in one of the biggest derbies of Brazilian football. However, Palmeiras still remains at the top for now thanks to their fantastic form this season in Serie A. Palmeiras also managed to reach the quarter-finals of Copa Libertadores, so with the exception of their early elimination from Copa do Brasil, everything is going according to plan for them. Adriano, Dudu, Luan, and Menino are injured and unavailable for the next game.

Fortaleza

This season has been better for Fortaleza than some of their wildest dreams, probably. Last season, Fortaleza avoided relegation thanks to goal difference and now they are sitting in the third spot in standings after 14 rounds have passed. Fortaleza lost their game to their city rivals Ceara in the last round, which broke their four-game winning streak. But they also secured a spot in Copa do Brasil quarter-finals last week after eliminating CRB with a couple of wins, so they are still riding high on confidence.
