Corinthians vs Palmeiras Prediction & Betting tips
With Corinthians against Palmeiras, a city duel this time in Sao Paulo may not be that hot. The reason is the exclusion of spectators in the Arena Corinthians. Nevertheless, as always, it is about a lot of prestige, which is why the motivation on both sides should be sufficiently high.
The hosts are still unbeaten at home despite the lack of fans. Admittedly, the opposition with teams like Coritiba or Fortaleza has not been too challenging so far. This changes now with the guest appearance of the record champions, who for their part are the only team in Serie A to have remained completely without defeat.
For the next edition of the Derby Paulista between Corinthians and Palmeiras, the tip aims to win the Verdao (DNB).
The whites and blacks present themselves fickle these weeks: With two wins and two defeats and three draws, the balance is absolutely balanced. Jo’s return in attack paid off for the two-time FIFA club champions.
In the course of his career, the 33-year-old has already played for top European clubs such as Manchester City and most recently for Nagoya in the Japanese J1 League. There the attacker won the top scorer’s crown in 2018. He was under contract with Corinthians a year earlier.
Also very successful, because in this season Jo also secured the title of best goal getters, together with Henrique von Fluminense. Nevertheless, his efficiency was a decisive factor in winning the championship at the time for Time do Povo.
Now the former Selecao national player continues unabated with scoring goals in the eighth of the previous year: In eleven appearances in the league and the previous state championship in Sao Paulo, he scored an impressive five goals.
In the most recent 2-2 draw against Botafogo, Jo was also there and saved the point against the team from Rio de Janeiro with his goal in the third minute of stoppage time.

The forecast is underpinned by the statistics from the last few years: The last eleven Derby Paulista always ended with a maximum of two goals!
Coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo will be able to draw on full resources in the upcoming match for a long time. Defenders Marcos Rocha and Felipe Melo are likely to return to the squad from midfield. In addition, Luan, an important player on the defensive, is available again after a card suspension.
In the last match, Gabriel Veron, a powerful offensive player, came up again after a long time. The attacker not only achieved the interim equalization, but also put on the decisive winning goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time by Willian.
The 18-year-old should still give the white-greens a lot of joy and can be described as one of the greatest talents in the country. At the U-17 World Cup last year, his skills flashed impressively and his strong performances were one reason why the title went to Brazil.
In Serie A he only played four games for Palmeiras, but has already scored three goals! The third of the past season scored two goals in a league game in the most recent 2-1 against Bragantino for the second time this season, which makes the predominantly moderate offensive performances clear.
The defensive, however, is reliable, conceding six narrow goals in the seven league games, with no more than a clean sheet jumping out.
