Palmeiras was able to increase its advantage at the top of the Brasileirão and is close to the title, however, its pursuers are not going to leave it that easy. In addition, we will have the ‘Fla-Flu’ derby on Matchday 27.
Leader Palmeiras will have a tough game when they host Santos, who is fighting for an international spot next year.
Internacional is the new second and they will have to beat Atlético Goianiense as a visitor if they want to continue like this.
The big game of the weekend will be the derby between Flamengo and Fluminense, who are third and fourth, and who also dream of reaching Palmeiras.
Corinthians, who lost its place in the top 4, will be able to recover it this Sunday if it beat América Mineiro, who dreams of going to the next Copa Libertadores.

Palmeiras suffered last weekend against Juventude, last in the tournament, and could barely beat them 2-1, enough to increase the distance at the top to 8 points thanks to the results of their pursuers. The ‘Verdão’, already without other tournaments in dispute, is focused solely on the Brasileirão and does not expect to let it escape.
Santos, meanwhile, has two consecutive losses (against Goiás and Ceará) and three games without winning (another tie with Cuiabá), which has caused them to drop to tenth place with 34 points, endangering their international activity next year.
Palmeiras vs. Santos Betting Pick: Palmeiras

Atlético Goianiense is not experiencing its best moment. Last week they were eliminated in the semifinal of the Copa Sudamericana on penalties against Sao Paulo, and for the Brasileirão, they have 3 consecutive losses and 5 games without a victory, which has them penultimate in the table and very close to confirming their relegation if they do not start winning.
Internacional was the big winner last weekend by taking advantage of the results of the other teams and beating Cuiabá (1-0), as they managed to move up to the second place and continue in the fight to snatch the title from Palmeiras. In addition, they have 5 undefeated games with 4 wins.
Atlético Goianiense vs. Internacional Betting Pick: Internacional

Derby Sunday in Rio de Janeiro. A new edition of the ‘Fla-Flu’ brings a Flamengo that is fighting for everything this year. The ‘Mengão’ is in the final of the Copa Libertadores, the semifinal of the Copa do Brasil, and third in the tournament, however, they had two consecutive draws in the Brasileirão that have separate them from Palmeiras.
For its part, Fluminense defeated Fortaleza (2-1) and reached the fourth place, with the same 45 points as its rival, so they know that a win this Sunday will push them at least 1 place up in the table. In addition, they are also in the semifinals of the Copa do Brasil.
Flamengo vs. Fluminense Betting Pick: Draw

América Mineiro is having a very good tournament and dreams of qualifying for the Copa Libertadores again, as they did last year. They have 8 unbeaten matches in the tournament, however, 3 of their last 4 results have been draws, which has caused them to stall in 8th place and are 7 points away from their goal.
Corinthians is quite far from Palmeiras now by 10 points after their last two draws, against Internacional and Sao Paulo, so they urgently need to win to re-enter the group of the best 4 that earn their direct quota to the next Copa Libertadores.
América Mineiro vs. Corinthians Betting Pick: Draw
