Match begins: 00:30 (UTC)
Venue: Estádio José Pinheiro Borda (51300 seats)

Internacional perform at a high level so far being 2nd in the table. Corinthians can look both up and down from their 10th position.

Insights:
  • Internacional has the most clean sheets (14) in Serie A
  • Internacional have scored at least twice as many goals at home as Corinthians have scored away.

There’s little time for restitution or working hard at the training pitch these days, with both teams having played their last game less than four days ago.

Corinthians have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 1100 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.

Corinthians is no longer fighting for a cause; they can neither go up or down this season.

Internacional form and stats

The home supporters can't complain about results here at Estádio José Pinheiro Borda as Internacional, who have the most clean sheets (14) in Serie A, have scored 34 goals to get 40 points from 18 games. The overall stats in the Serie A are 12-4-2 (wins-draws-losses).

The fans are hoping that Internacional will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 1-2 away loss in the Serie A game against Flamengo (placed 1st). A strong away win before that one, visiting Vasco da Gama and winning 2-0.

The home team are expected to win this game about three out of four times, according to the bookmaker odds. When checking the database for Internacional home games with this odds we find five games with a similar winning chance. Resulting in four wins, zero draws and one defeat. Looking at the victories, two matches were won by at least two goals.

The match schedule is unforgiving for Internacional as they have a new game in only four days, a Gaucho 1 match thankfully also at home. Juventude are visiting.

A decent goal production from Internacional in their home games so far, with 34 goals from 18 league matches. From these home matches, Internacional have conceded only 17 goals.

Corinthians form and stats

The visitors are W5-D4-L9 on the road this term. That's in the Serie A. Bitter travels for Corinthians as they have lost four games in a row away from home. The last time they avoided an away-from-home loss was the Botafogo match.

Corinthians have been frustrated by their lack of goals lately, as they haven't scored in the league since they found the net 250 minutes ago. Léo Natel was the goal scorer.

There were no winners in Corinthians's previous match, a Serie A home game that ended 0-0 vs Vasco da Gama (placed 17th). Preceding that game, the 0-1 loss visiting Santos's place.

We have done a similar check as we did with the hometeam, looking up recent matches where Corinthians played away with similar odds. This revealed one game. The visitors overcame the odds to win zero times, zero were draws and the home team won as expected one time.

Corinthians has another fixture away, a Paulista A1 game, against Bragantino in just three days. A tough schedule for the visitors!

The visitors have scored 16 goals from 18 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. 22 goals have been conceded by Corinthians in these games.

Head 2 Head

The last H2H meeting was Corinthians - Internacional 1-0, played this season. Head-2-head stats last ten meetings: two - five - three (Internacional wins - draws - Corinthians wins). As for goals, two matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), eight had two or less.
