Palmeiras vs. Corinthians is one of the biggest rivalries in Brazil. In the state of São Paulo for sure, it is the biggest one. Things are so crazy between these clubs that if a Corinthians player uses green cleats, he is in trouble.
The supporters, the players, the media, and even the directors get just nuts when this classical game is about to happen. For Palmeiras, it will be a special moment because, if they win it, they will be close to sealing a quiet trip towards the championship crown.
Corinthians has no other competition to focus on right now, so this match will be crucial to their intentions in the league.

Why Bet on Palmeiras?
Palmeiras will face Corinthians after beating Atlético Mineiro on the penalty kicks for the Copa Libertadores quarter-finals. The team has been at the top of the table since the beginning of the season and it doesn’t seem to change any time soon.
The sense of unity in Palmeiras is something that we are not used to seeing in the Brazilian League, as the country is well known for its talented players.
In the last 8 games, Palmeiras won 7 and just tied one. Those are numbers of champions and Palmeiras is on the right path to achieve it.
Why Bet on Corinthians?
Corinthians will face the most difficult challenge of the year in this game. There are a lot of reasons for Corinthians to win this game and the main one is that they need to shorten the distance from Palmeiras, as 6 points separate them right now.
Corinthians’s chances in this match have much to do with the rivalry between them. It’s not rare to see weaker teams beating the bigger ones when we see a local match with a strong rivalry.
Coach Vitor Pereira needs to take advantage of the exhausting sequence Palmeiras is facing recently, playing three competitions at the same time, and having little time to rest the players.
Final Betting Analysis: Corinthians vs. Palmeiras
Palmeiras will visit Corinthians in a match that is supposed to be balanced, but we truly believe that even playing away from home, El Verdao has more quality to beat their rivals. Our pick is a 2-1 win for Palmeiras.
