Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the upcoming Serie A games of the weekend.
As we prepare for another matchday of the Serie A campaign, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming games.
Let’s check out three betting tips for Matchday 20 of the Brazilian top-flight.
Expect goals when Bragantino face Juventude
Bragantino saw their impressive run of three consecutive wins ended when they suffered a 2-1 defeat against Fluminense on Sunday.
This week, they must face Juventude, who claimed their first victory in ten games last weekend. We expect Bragantino to have the upper hand in the upcoming match.
Given Juventude’s recent defensive stats, we expect the hosts to find enough goalscoring chances.
However, the guests’ newly-found attacking form suggest they might attempt to outscore Bragantino on Monday. This will provide more opportunities for the hosts to counter-attack while giving Juventude a chance to build on their last week’s performance.
Back Fluminense to beat Santos
Fluminense defeated Bragantino last weekend to continue their close race with Corinthians and Palmeiras at the top of the league table.
Next up, they must take on Santos, who come into the game on the back of a goalless draw against Fortaleza.
Given Fluminense’s superior firepower, we expect them to have a good chance of winning the game on Tuesday.
Having scored more than two goals in all of their last five games, the guests will most likely find enough chances to break into Santos’ defence.
On the other hand, Santos’ recent goal numbers don’t suggest they have a chance of preventing Fluminense from outscoring them in the upcoming game.
Don’t expect goals when Ceara take on Palmeiras
Palmeiras claimed their third consecutive victory by beating Internacional 2-1 last weekend.
Sitting four points above Corinthians, the league leaders will push for another win when they meet Ceara on Sunday.
However, Ceara’s solid defensive performances on home soil convince us we won’t see many goals in the game. The hosts will most likely spend most of the game in their own half.
On the other hand, Palmeiras have shown a tendency to avoid risks when going ahead against their opponents. We expect them to do the same if they possibly score the opener against their 12th-placed opponents this weekend.
