Palmeiras vs Sport – Brazilian Serie A: Palmeiras was coming off a not very positive period…
Where they had to face protests from their supporters, but they played very well and comfortably beat Flamengo on the last round, which should bring a little bit more of piece to the team for this encounter against the desperate Sport Recife at the Allianz Parque.
Having the best attack in the league, they promise to pressure from start to finish, which will certainly result in a lot of difficulties for the visiting team.
The team will have at their disposal Willian, who is their top goal scorer this season, and the return of Egídio. However, both teams’ starting line-up is yet to be decided and the truth is that, amongst all their options, they are very well served.
They haven’t won on their last 9 matches, with 7 of them being league matches and the other 2 being on the Copa Sudamericana.
That’s Sport’s current moment of form, sitting on the relegation zone and 3 points behind the first team outside the relegation zone.
The team is desperate for some points and will have the tough task of facing one of the 3 best home teams in the league.
To make matters worse, Sport who has the worst defence in the league, will also face the best attack in the competition, which means that it is almost certain that Palmeiras will score, making life even harder for the visiting team.
Palmeiras vs Sport Recife – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On an encounter of the best attack against the worst defence in the league, it is easy to expect a match with goals.
My initial idea was taking Palmeiras to score Over 1.5 goals. However, the odds are very low for that bet, so, taking advantage of Sport’s need for points.
I see some value on this Over 2.5 bet, since the visiting team will need to pressure after they concede, which should open up spaces in the back and increase the chances of a goal appearing.
