Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport

Looking to lay down another marker on their travels this weekend, Palmeiras will make the trip to the Maracanã when they face off against Fluminense on Sunday night.

Starting with the hosts, putting in what was a nightmare display earlier in the week, Fluminense find themselves in the midst of what has been another worrying rut. Last seen getting hit with a shock 1-0 loss away at relegation scrappers Gremio, the pressure is firmly on Marcão’s shoulders. Sliding their way down the Serie A table and now in an uphill battle to clinch another top-six finish, the Tricolor have collected just a trio of points from their last four top-flight contests. Gaining a reputation for their issues in the final third and bagging just a single goal from any of their last four outings, it should also be noted that Fluminense hold a worrying record against Sunday’s opponents. Suffering a 1-0 loss when they faced off against the top-four outfit back in July, they have won just one of their last seven meetings against Palmeiras.

As for the visitors, while Palmeiras might find themselves chasing a real deficit if they’re to snatch that Serie A title, Palestra are enjoying a stellar purple patch. Cruising their way to a top-four finish and gaining a host of plaudits from across Brazil this season, Abel Ferreira’s men were last seen in midweek landing a 4-0 romp against Atlético Goianiense. With the mood in their camp at a red-hot high, the São Paulo-based outfit should be smelling the chance to lay down another marker here. In fact, Sunday’s guests have won each of their last six straight matchups across all formats, a run that stems back to October 13th. Continuing to shine with their performances in the final third, and given their eye-catching record against a downbeat Fluminense, we’re backing an away victory this weekend.
