Palmeiras will be wanting a better result here following the 0-1 Copa do Brasil loss in their previous game against CRB.
Matches involving Palmeiras have usually been exciting encounters lately with a lot of goalmouth action anticipated. Over their past 6 clashes, a grand total of 20 goals have gone in for both sides combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 13 of them belonging to Verdão.
Their past results show that Palmeiras:
- haven't lost in the league to Corinthians in their last 5 games.
- are undefeated in their previous 12 home league matches. A very good run at home.
In the game prior to this, Corinthians drew 0-0 in the Copa do Brasil tie with Atlético Goianiense.
A sequence of very capable displays by the Corinthians defensive unit has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 4 from their last 6 clashes overall. In that time, their own forwards have managed to score 5. That aside, time will tell whether that trend will be maintained in this next match or not.
Taking a look at their past results, Corinthians:
- haven't won against Palmeiras when they have played them away from home in the previous 3 league games.
- have not been beaten in their last 2 league matches away from home.
Head to head

A sum of 12 goals were scored between them during those clashes, with 9 of them for Verdão and 3 created by Timão. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.

Team News: Palmeiras
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just a single fitness concern for the Palmeiras boss Abel Ferreira to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust squad. Breno Lopes (Stretched Ligament) is sidelined.
Team News: Corinthians
Due to a mostly available group of players, there is only the lone fitness problem for the Corinthians gaffer Sylvio Sylvinho to be concerned with. Danilo Avelar (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t be playing here.
In this game, Palmeiras certainly have the ability to score at least once when they line up against Corinthians, who may well find it hard to find the back of the net.
We can therefore see a fairly comfortable 2-0 win for Palmeiras come full-time.
