*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Fortaleza picked up a useful point at Atletico Mineiro in their last runout, though their return of just three victories from ten league fixtures this term is mediocre and it’s easy to see why they have been priced as 11/5 underdogs ahead of their clash with a more robust Palmeiras.

Palmeiras’ hot streak continued when they eased to a 3-1 triumph over Juventude last time out. That was their fifth victory on the spin and it kept them within touching distance of the summit. The visitors have a 43.5% chance of adding another win to their string this week and you can find more match result predictions over on our football betting tips page.

Last five H2Hs: High-scoring affairs have been common

Fortaleza and Palmeiras drew 2-2 when they last met in November last year and that was the fourth time in five previous skirmishes between the teams that featured at least three goals.

Chelsea-bound Estêvão to shine again?

Estêvão Willian was captured as part of Chelsea’s aggressive recruitment drive, though the youngster won’t be able to join the Blues until next year (2025) due to his age. The attacker turned just 17 in April, though he commanded a fee worth €34m with a further €23m in add ons when he signed on the dotted line for Chelsea.
