Sao Paulo vs Internacional Preview and Predictions

Sao Paulo vs Internacional
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 6th June 2018
Kick-Off at 01:30 UK / 02:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo, Sao Paulo.

Sao Paulo could not maintain the splendid run of three consecutive wins at the weekend when they fell 3-1 away at the last-term’s runners-up Palmeiras in a huge city derby. The schedule will not quite work in their favour as Tricolor are about to take on the red-hot likes of Internacional in the mid-week fixture.

The visitors may have just fought their way to earn the right to play the top flight competition, but they are truly smashing it at the kick-off to the new Serie A season. Odair Hellmann is doing a phenomenal job as the streak of three wins and two draws in last five league affairs sees Colorado sitting at sky-high fifth place with only a single point deficit to their Wednesday counterparts ahead of their head to head clash at Morumbi.

Sao Paulo vs Internacional: Head-to-head

Sao Paulo have just been slightly more successful outfit over the course of history.

Tricolor lead the H2H tie by only a single victory ahead of their landmark 40th outing against Internacional.

Only one of last six head to head clashes saw three or more goals scored.

Sao Paulo vs Internacional: Predictions

We would not be surprised to see the low-scoring head to head trend continued here given the importance the game has for both managers. The hosts will be desperate to return on the winning ways and extend the impressive three-win streak in matches in front of their crowd, but they’ll have to work hard to get the result against Internacional who will head into this unbeaten in five.

We expect a very tight and nervous contest from the get go which, combined with the fact that five of last six H2H games saw less than three goals scored, makes the Under 2.5 goals FT the best of the betting options at the 1.60 odds here.

Braver punters can also back the first half without goals at 2.50 odds.

Sao Paulo vs Internacional: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.60
