Fluminense is one of the weakest teams in this season. Seventeen matches are behind, and this team lost 10 of them. The defense is weak in repelling attacks from the flanks, and Fluminense cannot prevent their rivals from creating goal attempts. As a result, Fluminense conceded 26 goals in 17 matches. Now the team is in the relegation zone. It plays very bad on the road and earned only 4 points in 5 away matches. Most likely, this club will lose the upcoming game.
Palmeiras is in the third position and lags behind the leader by 6 points. If the team wins, it will reduce this margin to three points. Palmeiras is superior in terms of mastery. This club won 5 out of 7 home matches and had no defeats. In the home arena, Palmeiras scores 2 goals per match, and Fluminense concedes two goals per away match on average. So, Palmeiras can score a couple of goals, and Fluminense is unlikely to score more than a goal. Thus, Palmeiras has a good chance of winning. Palmeiras beat Fluminense in 4 out of 5 last head-to-head matches.
