Internacional vs Sport Recife Preview and Predictions

Aron Wright - May 31, 2018

Internacional vs Sport Recife
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 2nd June 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Jose Pinheiro Borda (Porto Alegre).

Both Internacional and Sport Recife have been in fine form recently and they meet for a Matchday 9 derby clash on Saturday in a battle for top 4 spots amid very solid spells of results. Internacional come into the match on the back of a three-game winning streak after beating Chapecoense, Corinthians, and Vitoria since mid-May and hope to build on the streak in front of the home crowd.

Indeed, Colorado have bagged five wins and a single draw in six home outings across competitions this term, only held off by Cruzeiro and regularly scoring numbers of goals except for that clash. They now look even more confident with an away win at Vitoria behind them and we do feel it will be very hard to hold them off.

Sport Recife come into the match after turning very tough clashes against Palmeiras and Atletico Mineiro their way, bagging six and conceding four goals along the way. They have had more troubles on the road, though, and the home side will surely hope to capitalize on such inconsistency!

Internacional vs Sport Recife: Head-to-head

  • Sport Recife haven’t beaten Internacional since July 2015 either.
  • Colorado have bagged two wins and a draw since that but their last clash was almost two years ago.
  • Leao have earned just one win in ten trips to Estadio Jose Pinheiro Borda.

Internacional vs Sport Recife: Prediction

We will now back Internacional to show off as a nut too tough to crack for Sport Recife and we’ll go for a Home win at 1.69. We have seen them in great shape especially in front of the home crowd and Sport Recife could have their hands full in Porto Alegre once again.

Both sides come into the match on the back of quite thrilling contests with three or more goals seen in last two occasions on both ends. With that in mind, going for Over 2.5 goals FT at does feel like very generous at 2.16 and we will now stick our necks out for it as well.
