Palmeiras vs Goias Live Stats & Betting Odds

Palmeiras Prediction – Can Palmeiras end on high note?

3rd placed Palmeiras have already ensured their automatic qualification in the Copa Libertadores as they possess a 5-point lead over 4th placed Athletico PR with their rivals having just 1 game remaining of the season, and a 6-point lead over 5th placed Gremio prior to tonight’s clash with Goias.

Nevertheless, I daresay Palmeiras will be keen to put an end to a 5-match sequence without a win in Serie A which includes back-to-back draws with Corinthians and Bahia, both in 1-1 stalemates, along with losing their last 3 matches on the trot.

Recent defeats to Gremio, Fluminense and Flamengo have prevented Palmeiras from moving into 2nd place behind runaway Serie A leaders, Flamengo, but the worst that can happen to the hosts is that they finish in 4th place.

An overall home record of 12-4-2 35/12 could have been even more impressive had it not been for a recent 3-match downturn in results which resulted in a draw and the aforementioned back-to-back defeats to Gremio and Flamengo.

Goias Prediction – Can Goias hang onto top 12 place?

Mid-table Goias currently occupy 10th place in the Brazilian top flight which, admittedly, is largely due to their solid home record which has seen them lose just 4 matches on home turf throughout this Serie A campaign, recording 10 of their 14 wins at their Estádio de Hailé Pinheiro.

The visitors have posted mixed results in recent weeks as they’ve gained wins against Avai, Bahia and Internacional but have also fallen to defeats to Atletico Mineiro, Santos and Fortaleza – the latter being a 2-1 loss at home.

However, there’s at least a glimmer of hope for Goias as they make their way to face Palmeiras on Thursday night and that is that the visitors have recently gained a point in a 1-1 draw at Vasco da Gama and registered the aforementioned 2-1 win at Internacional which should give them belief in getting a result at Palmeiras.

At the very least, Goias look a fairly okay chance at avoiding a heavy defeat as their hosts have experienced something of a slump in recent times and this looks like Goias’s best chance of getting something out of this clash.


Key-Facts – Palmeiras vs Goias

  • Palmeiras have failed to win their last 5 matches overall in Serie A
  • Goias are unbeaten in their last 2 away matches in Serie A
  • Goias have won 4 of the last 6 meetings against Palmeiras


Betting Tips Verdict

Palmeiras may edge the points here but recent results suggest this could be a closely fought battle.
