Return to this page a few days before the scheduled game when this expired prediction will be updated with our full preview and tips for the next match between these teams.
Internacional will be at Arena Corinthians on Saturday for the Série A clash with home side Corinthians.
Our Corinthians v Internacional tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below (inc. the best betting odds).
Corinthians won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 0-1 Copa do Brasil loss in their previous game against América Mineiro.
It’s not been often in recent games that Corinthians haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Timão have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 10 goals in the process. With no two games being the same, we will just have to wait and see whether the trend might persist in this next match or not.
Their previous form shows that Corinthians:
- have not lost a league tie with Internacional in their previous 3 matches.
- have not emerged victorious against Internacional in their last 4 matches in the league.
- are without a win at home for the past 3 league matches.
Internacional will go into this meeting after a 1-2 Copa do Brasil win versus Atlético Goianiense in their most recent match.
Indicating their penchant for productive encounters, we’ve seen goals 23 times in the last 6 matches in which Internacional have taken to the pitch, making it a mean average of 3.83 goals each meeting. Opposing teams have got 9 of those goals.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Internacional:
- have not emerged victorious against Corinthians when they have played them away from home in the previous 9 league games. Not an away record to be proud of.
- haven't been defeated by Corinthians in games played away from home for the previous 2 league matches.
- are undefeated in their last 3 league matches away from home.

Team News: Corinthians
Danilo Avelar (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Léo Santos (Bruised Knee) will not be able to play for Corinthians boss Tiago Nunes.
Team News: Internacional
Inter de PA manager Eduardo Coudet has to currently contend with reduced team options. Paolo Guerrero (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Gabriel Boschilia (Muscle Injury) are not able to play.
In our opinion, Corinthians will have to play well to score against this Internacional side who we reckon should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We therefore fancy a very even contest with a 0-1 advantage for Internacional when the referee blows for full-time.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
