*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

We can see from these Internacional vs Belgrano odds that the hosts are the expected winners in this match and we were surprised to see the odds given that Belgrano are at the top of the group standings right now.

That being said, Internacional are two games behind Belgrano after their matches were postponed due to floods in Brazil, while also being just four points behind. With the advantage of playing at home, it's understandable that they're the favourites.

In any case, if you liked our predictions for this duel, remember to also look at our favourite betting tips for today.

Last five H2Hs: Second meeting ever between these teams

We saw Internacional and Belgrano meet once this season in Argentina in a scoreless game, which was their first and only meeting to date.

Meanwhile, Belgrano have played just three matches against Brazilian teams so far, notching one win, draw, and loss each. On the other hand, Internacional have a record of 12-7-8 against teams from Argentina.

Internacional preview: Getting back into form

As we mentioned above, a couple of Internacional's matches were postponed in Copa Sudamericana after the floods hit Rio Grande do Sul, a state in Brazil. Internacional are currently third in their group, but they have a great chance of getting to the next stage since they're just four points behind Belgrano at the top, with two games in hand.

When it comes to team news, only Ivan is on Internacional's injury list at this time.

Player to watch: Wesley

With two goals in Serie A and two in Copa Sudamericana, Wesley Riberio Silva, also known simply as Wesley, is Internacional's top scorer this season.

Can Wesley be the first goalscorer?

While the sample size is small, two of Wesley's three goals this season were the first goal in the match, so we might see that happen against Belgrano as well.
