Corinthians vs Palmeiras
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 10 September 2020
Kick-off at 23:15 UK/ 00:15 CET
Venue: Arena Corinthians.
The Big Green just might be one of the best teams in the competition, and one of the most consistent as well. As of now, they are the only unbeaten squad in the league in 2020, and despite having a game in hand, they still have climbed to the top-most tier.
Meanwhile, Coringao might appear to be in good form, but their results require to be closely inspected. They have won just twice this season in the Serie A, and one of those had come against Goias – the dead-last placed team in the table, and the other win had come against a newly-promoted Cortiba.
Likely, expect the far more consistent Palmeiras to be the better team on the pitch this Thursday, and extend their unbeaten run for another week.
Corinthians vs Palmeiras: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Three of the previous five match-ups had goals from both teams.
- The last time these two met on the pitch was in the Campeonato Paulista, and then Vanderlei Luxemburgo’s men recorded a win via pentalties.
- The latest clash at this stadium had ended in a goalless draw.
- At this ground, the hosts had failed to score in two of the former five encounters.
Corinthians vs Palmeiras: Prediction
Tiago Nunes’s men were winless in seven of their former nine overall matches, and these sole two wins had come against two of the weakest performers in the league.
On the other hand, their counterparts are the only unbeaten team remaining in the competition, and they have an opportunity to make it to the second spot in the table, considering they have a game in hand.
Going on, they were also winless in 27 of their previous 29 overall fixtures, and were invincible in 19 of their former 23 road trips.
Considering the recent performances of both teams, and especially the consistency of the Big Green, expect Palmeiras to emerge victorious this Thursday.
