Goias vs Palmeiras
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 8 September 2019
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Serra Dourada (Goiânia).
The reigning Serie A champions are facing a tough road ahead with them struggling to make any kind of an impact in the recent league fixtures. They are winless in their last five attempts, and the likes of Flamengo and Santos have made full use of this period of a lull for the title-holders.
Still, Palmeiras does have a match in hand, and if they manage this upcoming road tie well, they could bounce back.
Hosts Goias will have to account for the determination that their opponents will bring to the table owing to their current condition, and hope that the home advantage would be enough to deal with it.
Goias vs Palmeiras Head-to-head (h2h)
- Goias won the last three matches in a row.
- Palmeiras failed to score a single goal in these three games as well.
- Five of the previous six meetings at this venue ended in defeats for the guests.
- Eight of the former eleven clashes at this stadium had goals at either end of the pitch.
Goias vs Palmeiras Prediction
Despite them going winless for the last five match-days in the competition, the guests still have a fear-factor associated with their name. They had, in fact, blew away oppositions in their run which resulted in them lifting the title at the end of the season in style.
Also, Goias is not so hot either at the moment. They have managed just six wins from their seventeen appearances in the tournament and was winless in ten of their former twelve overall ties.
As such, count on an away win this weekend but taking into account the home advantage, the h2h superiority that the hosts held in recent h2h clashes at this venue, and the current struggles of the champions, a clean sheet might be out of the equation. Consequentially, the BTTS option holds merit here.
