Fluminense vs Palmeiras
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 13 August 2020
Kick-off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
The Big Green had finished in the podium the last season, and were easily the second-best team in the competition along with Santos, after of course the champions, Flamengo.
Vanderlei Luxemburgo’s men had a lead of nine points over the next team, and they were also one of the four teams in the whole competition to score 60+ goals.
Meanwhile, Fluzao barely managed to finish in the mid-table, in the 14th spot, and in fact had ended with a negative goal difference.
On top of that, they are going through a dismal run at the moment, while their counterparts have been performing admirably. And to top it all off, Luxemburgo’s men have a great h2h record against them as well.
By all means expect a win from Palmeiras this Thursday.
Fluminense vs Palmeiras: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Big Green had recorded nine of the former twelve overall wins.
- They have conceded a total of two goals from the past five fixtures.
- They had scored three or more goals in two of the preceding three games.
- In the last five years, only twice have the hosts won at this stadium.
- They have scored a total of just two goals from the preceding four encounters at this venue.
Fluminense vs Palmeiras: Prediction
Fluzao were winless in eight of their last nine overall fixtures, and they had a total of just one win from their former five appearances at this venue.
On top of that, they had also finished in the bottom tier of the league table the last season, and have a poor h2h record against this rival over the years.
On the other hand, their counterparts are unbeaten in their last five matches (of which four were wins), and they have also lost just once in their preceding fourteen games. And importantly, they had finished in the podium the last campaign in standings.
As such, Palmeiras are expected to post the three points on the board this Thursday.
