Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Palmeiras v Internacional match are shown here including the latest game odds.
Palmeiras prepare for this game coming off the back of a 0-0 Serie A drawn match vs Bahia.
In that match, Palmeiras had 48% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 2 on target. On the other side, Bahia got 17 shots on goal with 5 of them on target.
It’s been all too rare in recent times that Palmeiras have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Palmeiras have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 10 goals along the way. Regardless, it remains to be seen whether that trend might be replicated in this next game.
Heading into this contest, Palmeiras have not won at home in their last 3 league games.
Internacional head into the match after a 3-1 Serie A win against América Mineiro in their most recent match.
In that game, Internacional managed 49% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. For Internacional, the goalscorers were Patrick (14', 64') and Yuri Alberto (90'). América Mineiro got 11 shots on goal with 2 of them on target. Ademir (16') scored for América Mineiro.
A succession of outstanding performances from the Internacional defensive unit has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their past 6 outings in total. During the same period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 11.
Taking a look at their past results, Internacional:
- are winless against Palmeiras when they've played them away from home in the last 5 league matches. Not the best of away records.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 2 league games.
Head to head
Looking at their past head-to-head clashes dating back to 26/08/2018 tells us that Palmeiras have won 2 of these and Internacional 1, with the tally of draws standing at 3.
A total of 10 goals were yielded between them throughout the course of those matches, with 5 of them from Verdão and 5 coming from Colorado. The average number of goals per game works out to 1.67.
The previous league contest featuring these sides was Serie A match day 8 on 30/06/2021 which finished with the scoreline of Internacional 1-2 Palmeiras.
On that occasion, Internacional managed 66% possession and 15 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Their only player on the scoresheet was Edenílson (65').
For their opponents, Palmeiras had 14 attempts on goal with 6 on target. Deyverson (9') and Danilo (89') scored.

Team News: Palmeiras
The Palmeiras manager Abel Ferreira has a full complement, with no fitness concerns to speak of before this match with a fully injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: Internacional
Internacional manager Diego Aguirre has not got a full squad to pick from. Rodrigo Moledo (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Bruno Méndez (Hamstring Injury) won’t be making appearances.
We’re thinking that Internacional could well find it tough to score against this Palmeiras side who we reckon will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’re therefore tipping a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 victory for Palmeiras at the end of this one.
Looking forward to this.
