Corinthians have traveled here for an interesting fight against the hosts Palmeiras. Prepare for the match with this Serie A preview!

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.

Palmeiras's previous game was also a home match, the defeat 0-1 versus CRB (after extra-time, 3-4 on penalties).

Previous to that game, a Serie A home match hosting Chapecoense in a game that was won 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.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Palmeiras as they are travelling to their away game against Juventude in the Serie A. That match is four days after this one.

At Allianz Parque, Palmeiras has the goal stats of 3-1 (for/against) from 1 league fixture.

Corinthians form and stats

Only one away game in the Serie A so far for Corinthians and it resulted in three points. Last season the statistics for their away games were 4 victories, 1 draw and 1 loss from 6 travels. Winning streaks in away matches are not that common, but Corinthians are close to a proper streak after winning their two previous away games.

It's another away game for the visitors, as they travelled to Atletico GO (placed 3rd) in their previous outing. The Copa do Brasil match ended in a draw 0-0.

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

Looking at the earlier recent performances of Corinthians when being an outsider away as they are today, we find one match with the visitors losing zero times, drawing one and winning zero games.

A new game in only four days for Corinthians, the Serie A home match versus Bragantino. Busy days.

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

As for the last ten games between these two teams, there's three Palmeiras victories, five draws and two Corinthians wins. Over/under statistics; two of these games ended with three goals or more, eight matches with two goals or less.
