Competition: Brazil Serie A

Market: Palmeiras win

Odds: 3/5 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has become a recent purple patch, a high-flying Palmeiras will host Atlético Goianiense late on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Palmeiras might open the midweek fixtures sat chasing a 10-point deficit at the top of the Serie A table, the mood in their camp should still be at a red-hot high. Cruising their way to the group stage of next year’s Copa Libertadores, Alviverde were last seen over the weekend picking up another routine victory. Landing a deserved 2-0 win against Santos, Head Coach Abel Ferreira has seen his side really bounce back from their worrying run of form when heading into October. Looking to lay down another marker on Wednesday night, the former Brazilian champions have now won each of their last five Serie A contests on the bounce. Enjoying what has been a stellar purple patch over the past month, it should also be noted that the Greens have secured back-to-back top-flight victories at the Allianz Parque.

As for the visitors, putting in what was another flat display over the weekend, Atlético Goianiense find themselves in the midst of what has been a recent wobble. Now suffering back-to-back 2-0 losses against Sport Recife and Flamengo, interim boss Eduardo Souza finds his side just about hanging onto their spot in the top-13 thanks to their goal difference. With just a pair of victories to their name since the start of October, the Goiás-based outfit will know that they face a stern test at the Allianz Parque late on Wednesday night. Suffering a 3-0 hammering the last time they faced off against Palmeiras back in July, it should also be noted that they have collected just a single point from any of their last seven straight meetings against their midweek opponents.
