Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365

Two sides enduring very different levels of success in Brazil’s top-tier, Palmeiras will welcome a struggling Fluminense to Sao Paulo in the early hours of Wednesday.

Starting with the hosts, picking up a much-needed 2-1 win away at Goiás over the weekend, Palmeiras appear to have refound their form as they look to make a late charge for the Serie A crown. Handed the chance to move within touching distance of league leaders Flamengo, it will undoubtedly be their form on home soil most impressing Head Coach Mano Menezes. Desperate to secure their 11th Serie A title, Palmeiras are remarkably unbeaten in their last 23 Serie A appearances in Sao Paulo, a run that stems all the way back to May 2018.

As for the visitors, while the former Brazilian champions may have managed to land a morale-boosting 1-0 win away at Fortaleza on Saturday, Fluminense still find themselves in the midst of a real struggle. Sat three points adrift of safety and still struggling to adjust to life under new boss Oswaldo de Oliveira, Wednesday’s guests have recorded just a single victory since the start of August. Sadly for Fluminense, they also hold some unpleasant memories about their last trip to Sao Paulo. When the two sides met back in November, Oliveira’s men slumped to a 3-0 hammering.
