Internacional vs Corinthians
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 27 May 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Jose Pinheiro Borda (Porto Alegre)
Corinthians have been in fine form and they sit in the top 4, just two points behind Serie A table-toppers Atletico Mineiro. They travel to Estadio Jose Pinheiro Borda for their Matchday 7 clash against Internacional on Sunday, just days after their Copa Libertadores clash against Millonarios, as Fabio Carille’s men look to extend a five-game unbeaten streak.
Internacional have, on the other hand, struggled for points and only ended a five-game winless streak across competitions with a 3-0 win over Chapecoense, which only proved enough to escape the relegation zone. They will now look to build on such a performance but it’s obvious – Corinthians will be much more of a challenge at this point.
Timao have been regularly netting numbers of goals and although we’ve seen goalscoring woes on the road late in April – they have now boosted their confidence and look at the top of their game at this point. Internacional have proven themselves as a very tough side to beat at Estadio Jose Pinheiro Borda, but the visitors look very motivated.
Internacional vs Corinthians: Head-to-head
Internacional bagged a thriller Copa do Brazil win over the rivals in April, winning on penalties after a 2-2 aggregate draw.
They haven’t won in the regular time since September 2015, with two wins for Corinthians and two draws on the record.
We’ve seen two or fewer goals in all of their last four matchups.
Internacional vs Corinthians: Prediction
We will now back Corinthians to capitalize on the rivals recent inconsistencies and snatch an important point in Porto Alegre, as they do look more confident at this point. We don’t feel they can snatch all three but Draw does look like a solid bet to get behind at 3.30.
We do feel both sides will be motivated but we don’t expect many goals, seeing both sides mainly base success on tough defensive displays, as we go for Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.63. We’ve seen such occasions in three of Corinthians’ last four trips as well as eight of Internacional’s last ten overall.
Internacional vs Corinthians: Bet Tips
- Draw @ 3.30
- Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.63
