Vitória vs Palmeiras: Vitória hosts Palmeiras at the Barradão this Wednesday on a Brazilian Serie A match…
What a cold shower that Palmeiras received on the weekend against Corinthians.
On the decisive match against Corinthians, Palmeiras’ dream was winning the match and leaving the title fight wide open.
But Palmeiras ended up being defeated and practically sealed their ticket out of the title race.
With the advantage Corinthians has in terms of points and the number of rounds remaining, it is very hard for them to react.
The consolation prize will be a direct qualification spot for Copa Libertadores’ group stage.
Palmeiras currently occupies the 4th place on the league table with 54 points gained.
Playing away from home, they have 7 victories, 3 draws and 6 losses, having scored 24 goals and conceded 21 up until this point.

Vitória continues their saga of doing well away from home. They got a good draw against Vasco on the last round.
But they’re doing miserably when they play at home. The team sits in 17th place and they’re on the relegation zone with 35 points.
But curiously, only 10 of those points were gained as hosts. Vitória hasn’t been able to impose their style at home.
Vitória vs Palmeiras – Betting Tip and Prediction:
They always seem more comfortable playing as visitors.
It is also worth highlighting that Vitória is, with 49 goals conceded, the worst defence of this Brazilian Serie A, along with Atlético Goianiense.
I expect a match with goals here. The two teams are in need of points and they should expose themselves more than usual looking for the win.
