Internacional vs Sao Paulo Prediction
At home, Internacional has been one of the best squads in the league. They are unbeaten in their former 17 games in all competitions and won 12 of them as well. They also had a long seven-match winning run in the midst of this stretch to improve their confidence levels.
Moreover, they are unbeaten against this opponent in the last four years, and in the previous five years at this venue. Also, Sao Paulo was winless in 15 of their prior 22 road trips.
As such, count on the hosts to deliver a win this weekend. But taking into account the current overall form of the guests, the fact that Internacional has failed to keep a clean sheet in the last four overall match-ups, and the stat that they repeated the feat in seven of the previous nine h2h clashes, the scope for BTTS to occur is very high this Saturday.
