Palmeiras Prediction – Can Palmeiras close gap on Flamengo?

2nd placed Palmeiras find themselves 8 points behind the current Brazil Serie A league leaders, Flamengo, prior to their Wednesday night clash against lowly Chapecoense, but the hosts have the perfect opportunity to claim another three points here and perhaps reduce the deficit on their title rivals.

Palmeiras have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 9 matches overall in the Brazilian top flight which was a 2-0 loss away at 3rd placed Santos, but the hosts quickly bounced back with a 1-0 home win against Botafogo last time out to return to winning ways.

The hosts also still remain unbeaten on home turf at their Allianz Parque with an impressive record that stands at 9-3-0 27/6 which includes winning 4 of their last 5 matches on home soil with victories over Fluminense, Cruzeiro, CSA and the aforementioned Botafogo.

Goals have also come along for the ride as Palmeiras are the second highest goalscorers at home in the division, with the likes of midfielder Henrique (7 goals) and forwards Dudu (6 goals), Willian (4 goals) and Deyverson (3 goals) the most likely for the hosts.

Chapecoense Prediction – Can Chapecoense revive their fortunes?

It’s sad to see Chapecoense sitting bottom of the Brazilian Serie A and 10 points adrift of safety as they prepare for this difficult trip to face an in-form Palmeiras side who are flying high in the Brazilian top flight.

Chapecoense came within a whisker of winning the 2016 Copa Sudamericana before tragedy struck when their plane crashed, leaving only 3 players left alive, but their opponents, Atletico Nacional, insisted they were awarded the trophy. Since then, fortunes have changed dramatically for this club on and off the pitch, and they’re now in desperate trouble of relegation.

The visitors are without a win from their last 10 matches overall in Serie A, a run that includes 7 defeats, so confidence isn’t likely to be that high as they look to contain their hosts, while Chape themselves look for a way to end their 9-match sequence without an away win.

An away record of 1-3-8 9/24 doesn’t bode well for this trip, especially as only Goias (26 goals) have conceded more goals away from home in Serie A than Chapecoense.


Key-Facts – Palmeiras v Chapecoense

  • Palmeiras have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 9 matches overall
  • Palmeiras have won 4 of their last 5 matches at home in Serie A
  • Chapecoense are without an away win from their last 10 matches on the road


Betting Tips Verdict

This should be a straightforward win for Palmeiras and we should also see a few goals here too.
