Serie A at Bet Victor

Saturday evening also brings us further action from the Brazilian top flight and our next featured match sees Sao Paulo taking on Palmeiras as the betting tips continue at the Morumbi Stadium.

Sao Paulo Prediction – Can Sao Paulo break barren spell?

The hosts head into this difficult looking fixture with the Brazilian top flight league leaders, Palmeiras, without a win from their last 5 matches.

On the other hand, Sao Paulo have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 9 matches overall in Serie A, so it’s not all bad news.

The recent problem has been the overload of draws – 4 out of their last 5 matches in fact have ended in stalemate.

Sao Paulo still remain unbeaten on home turf at Morumbi Stadium, but it’s a stubborn, rather than an inspiring home record that they possess.

A record of 1-3-0 4/2 includes a 2-0 win over Botafogo along with draws against Flamengo, Bahia and Cruzeiro.

The hosts have made themselves hard to beat on home soil as they’re unbeaten in their last 9 matches, and have lost just 1 of their last 33 matches in Serie A.

However, Sao Paulo may be missing some cutting edge up front as 16 of these last 33 matches at home have ended in draws.

Palmeiras Prediction – Can Palmeiras extend lead at top?

A 2-0 home win over Avai last time out in the Brazilian top flight extended Palmeiras’s winning streak to 7 victories on the trot.

Having won 8 of their first 9 matches of this new Brazilian Serie A season, Palmeiras proudly sit top of the pile with a 5-point cushion ahead of 2nd placed Santos.

Palmieras still remain the only side in Serie A yet to taste defeat as well, and they’ll be looking to preserve their unbeaten status in Sao Paulo on Saturday.

Indeed, it’s not only this season that Palmeiras have impressed either – the visitors are now unbeaten in their last 32 matches overall which is a staggering record.

An away record of 3-1-0 6/2 also indicates that Palmeiras are just as comfortable on the road as they are at their Allianz Parque.

A 1-1 draw at CSA was followed by 3 wins on the trot at Atletico Mineiro, Botafogo and Chapecoense in 2-0, 1-0 and 2-1 wins respectively.


Key-Facts – Sao Paulo v Palmeiras

  • Sao Paulo have lost just 1 of their last 33 matches at home in Serie A
  • 16 of Sao Paulo’s last 33 matches at home have ended in draws
  • Palmeiras are unbeaten in their last 32 matches overall in Serie A


Betting Tips Verdict

This clash resembles something of the immovable object against the unstoppable force, but as it’s also a local derby, I’ll back Palmeiras with the handicap here.
