Struggling Goiás will be hoping to pull off an upset when they welcome high-flying Palmeiras in the upcoming league round. It’s 20th vs 5th and the home crowd will have moderate expectations.
It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only three days ago in the Copa do Brasil. That game was also an away game, at Ceará. It will be interesting to see if they are fully ready and rested for this match, and/or if some changes in the lineup is necessary.
These teams have little in common geographically as Palmeiras have to travel 900 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.
Goiás form and stats
Goiás's struggle is real here at Estádio de Hailé Pinheiro with only 9 points collected from 10 Serie A games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 2-3-5. All in all it has been a very rough period for Goiás who hasn’t won a league-game in their last eleven attempts. Their previous win was against Internacional, 69 days ago.
The Goiás crowd went home unhappy last time out, seeing their beloved players lose 0-1 to Athletico PR here at Estádio de Hailé Pinheiro in a Serie A match. A defeat was the result before that one, 1-2 away at Sao Paulo.
Tadeu had a busy but productive day in the Athletico PR match. Despite making seven saves the loss could not be prevented.
Goiás has scored 14 league goals at home this season, in 10 matches. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 18 goals have been conceded.
Palmeiras form and stats
As the visiting team in Serie A matches, Palmeiras, who have the fewest conceded goals (8) away in Serie A, have produced an overall stat of 5-3-2 so far. The visitors have performed well in their home games as well, building a total win streak of four games home and away. Palmeiras hope to make it five in this match. Palmeiras has recorded two wins in a row in their away matches and hold legitimate hopes of a third one.
409 minutes! That's how long the Palmeiras goalkeeper Jailson Marcelino dos Santos and his defense have shut out their league opponents.
Palmeiras are the visiting side once again, their previous game being the 2-2 draw at Ceará (placed 14th). A home win before that, celebrating 2-0 vs Fluminense.
Drawing 2-2 against Ceará after 90 minutes last time out was very disappointing after leading the match 2-0. Their manager A. Moreira Ferreira needs to evaluate why the team couldn't defend their result.
The visitors will be packing their bags again in only four days as another away game awaits: The Copa Libertadores trip to Delfin.
Palmeiras have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 10 league away games 13 goals have been scored. They concede less than a goal on average per away game (8 so far).
Head 2 HeadThe most recent history between these sides is the Palmeiras - Goiás 1-1 played earlier this season. Goiás-Palmeiras H2H statistics last ten meetings regardless of arena: Goiás four wins, Palmeiras five wins, one draw. five of these ten matches had three or more goals (over 2,5).
