Palmeiras vs Fluminense
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 24 July 2021
Kick-off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 (CEST +1 day)
Venue: Allianz Parque.
Palmeiras have been the best team in the competition so far this season, and they are placed at the top of the table. Meanwhile, Fluminense are going through a rather inconsistent streak, and they are struggling with their defense. Likely, expect a win for the former this Saturday.
At present, Palmeiras are at the top of the table with a 3-point lead, and they have scored the most number of goals of all the squads in the Brazilian top flight. Moreover, they also have a 100% winning record at home this campaign, barring a single draw.
In the meantime, Fluminense have won just four times this season, and they have not even managed to score goals at a rate of one per game. And most importantly, they have a poor h2h record against this rival over the years – especially so at this stadium.
For the reasons, expect a win for Palmeiras.

On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in eight of their past twelve overall fixtures, and they have a total of just four wins on the road in their past twelve attempts.
