After losing 1-0 to Gremio on Sunday, Fluminense hope for a return to winning ways when they entertain Palmeiras next. Thursday’s visitors are making their league debut this week, after their playoff tournament excursions last week.

Having narrowly edged a gritty final against Corinthians on Saturday, Vanderlei Luxemburgo’s side added some silverware to their collection.

They’ll look to continue their five-game unbeaten run against a Fluminense side that finished almost 30 points behind them in last year’s standings. However, it’s a new season with different expectations. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Fluminense vs Palmeiras Betting Tips

Stranger things have happened, but the gap between Fluminense-Palmeiras in last season’s top-flight suggests there’s only one winner here.

Since returning to action in late June, Fluminense’s record is far from inspiring – across competitive play and friendlies. In nine matches, they’ve recorded more defeats (4) than wins (2) and have a trio of draws to accompany their dwindling form. The manner in which they conceded against Gremio last time out? It doesn’t bode well.

Alisson’s audacious manoevure to keep the ball alive in the area teed up Isaque, who was dispossessed in the box. The tackle inadvertently teed up Diego Souza though, to cooly slot into the bottom corner from close-range.

In that move, there were a whopping six Fluminense players within a few yards’ space in-or-around the box. Caught ball-watching, flat-footed and unaware, none of them reacted quickest when the ball eventually broke free.

If they defend like that against Palmeiras, they’ll be in trouble. With the likes of Willian, Luiz Adriano and a motivated Gustavo Scarpa in tow, Luxemburgo’s side mean business.

Fluminense vs Palmeiras Correct Score Predictions

In 18 previous H2H meetings, both sides have nine wins – there’s been no draws between them. It’d be just my luck that they record their first stalemate here, but nonetheless, two sides who are evenly matched square off.

Judging by recent form, I’d pack Palmeiras to win. However, recent results have been a bit too nervy for my liking and instead, I’m going with BTTS here.
