Internacional form and stats

Playing away, Internacional, who have the most clean sheets (6) in Serie A, have won 2 games, drawn 1 and suffered 2 defeats in the Serie A this season.

Internacional had fun at their own home (Estádio Governador Plácido Aderaldo Castelo) last time out, beating America de Cali 4-3. Abel Hernández (2) and Gabriel Boschilia (2) scored. It was a Serie A defeat before that one as the away game against Goias wasn't a success with a 0-1 loss.

A crazy, crazy match with lots of goals last time out for Internacional, as mentioned above. 7 goals in that one, will this match be as much fun? Late drama in the previous game, when Gabriel Boschilia scored the winning goal one minutes into stoppage time to defeat America de Cali.

A new game in only four days for Internacional, the Copa Libertadores home match versus Gremio. Busy days.

Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far Internacional have scored 5 goals in 5 league games away. It's not easy to score on Internacional as they have only conceded 4 goals from these away games.

Head 2 Head

H2H stats regardless of arena (last eight matches): Fortaleza one win, one draw and Internacional six victories. As for goals, five matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), three games had two or less.
