Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: Palmeiras double chance
Odds: 8/13 @ 888sport
Knowing that victory in midweek could leapfrog them to the top of the Serie A table, Palmeiras will make the trip to the Estádio Beira-Rio when they face off against Internacional on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Internacional might have thought they had a golden chance on the road over the weekend, it was another sluggish display for Diego Aguirre’s side. Eventually having to come from behind away at relegation contenders América Mineiro and lucky to have left with a point to show for their troubles, Clube do Povo have really failed to find a similar level that they set after grabbing a silver medal finish last season. With just a single win from their last four Serie A contests, Internacional are still trying to bounce back from some horror displays in the Copa do Brasil earlier in the month. Blown away thanks to that 3-1 defeat at the hands of Vitória on home soil, the former São Paulo boss has also seen his side gain a reputation for their extended issues on home soil. Remarkably, Wednesday’s hosts have failed to record a single win from any of their last six straight home contests.
As for the visitors, while Internacional might have shown a host of recent issues, particularly on home soil, the mood in Palmeiras’ camp should be at a real high. Managing to make an immediate return to winning ways when they welcomed Bahia to the Allianz Parqueover the weekend, Palestra landed an action-packed 3-2 win on home soil and they have their sights set on a real title charge this time around. With it looking like their 3-1 defeat against leaders RB Bragantino earlier in the month was just a minor blip, Head Coach Abel Ferreira has seen his side collect nine points from their last four Serie A contests. Knowing that victory in midweek could see them storm their way to the top of the table, Palmeiras should be smelling a real chance to lay down another clinical marker when they travel to the Estádio Beira-Rio on Wednesday night.
Bet: Palmeiras double chance against Internacional 8/13 for Wednesday’s Serie A battle @ 888sport
