Internacional vs Corinthians
Brazil- Serie A
Date: Sunday, 11 August 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Estádio José Pinheiro Borda (Porto Alegre).
Internacional bounced back from a 2-1 defeat in the league, to clinch a narrow 1-0 win against Cruzeiro in the Copa do Brazil. The squad were certainly the better side in the latter clash and registered a total of five attempts at goal, four of which were on target.
The foes for the weekend, Corinthians, enjoyed a positive 2-0 result in their favor, in their most recent clash against Goias at home. The visitors secured all three points in their last trip on the road in the league as well, with a 3-1 win over Fortaleza.
However, the away side have stumbled twice in their outings so far and will have to be wary of Internacional who have been placing their best foot forward in all of their home clashes.

Internacional vs Corinthians Prediction
The hosts have failed to pick up a win just once in their last seven clashes here so far. Internacional have also scored fourteen goals to their name in the process, and have conceded no more than four in the back of their net.
Moreover, Corinthians have not got the better of the home team in their last three visits here. The guests’ have just two wins in their previous five outings, while their only two defeats in their campaign came in their trips on the road.
Considering the run of form that Internacional are on right now, at home, it looks more than likely that the win will be swinging in their favor at the end of the ninety minutes.
Additionally, four of Internacional’s last five home clashes in the league have seen them wrap up the game with under 2.5 goals on the scorecards. The away side have not scored more than one goal each in their last five clashes with the hosts here as well.
So it is certainly safe to anticipate a low scoring clash, with Internacional getting the job done without breaking much of a sweat.
