Sao Paulo clubs Palmeiras and Corinthians meet for classic clash

This promises to be another interesting encounter at Allianz Parque in the Serie A. Palmeiras is in 7th position and welcome Corinthians in 10th place. Read all about the match here!

Best bookmaker betting odds:

This is the Paulista Derby, rated one of the greatest classic football rivalries in the world. The teams Corinthians and Palmeiras are both from São Paulo, the most populous city in Brazil. There is no love between these teams or their fans, meeting for more than a hundred years with endless episodes of chaos and drama. Expect more of the same in this one.

It's no vacation for neither Palmeiras nor Corinthians as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.

This is a match between teams from the same area, a local derby. The community is buzzing.

Palmeiras form and stats

Palmeiras have only played one Serie A game here so far, a win. Last season their home statistics were 3 wins, 0 draws and 3 defeats from 6 matches.

The Palmeiras fans got no joy from their last match, a Copa do Brasil game also here at Allianz Parque: A 0-1 defeat against CRB (after extra-time, 3-4 on penalties).

Before that, Palmeiras had a Serie A home game versus Chapecoense which ended with a victory 3-1.

The betting market estimate that the home team has about 55-60% chance of winning this match. There could be betting value if you think differently, so to help you here are the stats from Palmeiras's earlier matches at home being 55%-60% favourite: Played two games, won one match, drawn zero and lost one.

Palmeiras are traveling soon after this match as the Serie A match at Juventude awaits in four days.

It's still early days, but we have some goal stats for the Palmeiras at home in the league. 3 on target and 1 scored by the opposition; from 1 match.

Corinthians form and stats

A perfect away game record so far for the visitors in the Serie A, but they have only played once. Last season their away game stats were 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat from 6 matches. Corinthians has recorded two wins in a row in their away matches and hold legitimate hopes of a third one.

Corinthians are the visiting side once again, their previous game being the 0-0 draw at Atletico GO (placed 3rd).

Ahead of that match was the victory versus America Mineiro at their stadium, the result 1-0.

As mentioned above, the odds for this match puts the home team as favourites. Perhaps this eases the pressure on the away team, who are capable of producing an upset here on a good day. Looking at earlier matches with similar odds and Corinthians playing away, we found one game. Results were zero away wins, one draw and zero home wins.

After this away game Corinthians return home for a Serie A game against Bragantino. That game is only four sleeps after this.

It's early days yet, but Corinthians has scored 1 and conceded 0 goals from their travels in the league so far (1 game).

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last ten meetings: three - five - two (Palmeiras wins - draws - Corinthians wins). As for goals, two matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), eight had two or less.
