Guess Goiás vs Internacional: our selection of the best bets
Prediction 1: Goiás wins
The Goiás team is in full recovery in the Brazilian Championship, and for a few rounds, it does not know what it is to be among the last four placed in Serie A. Therefore, we believe that the first possibility of betting for this meeting is the victory of the home team in this match. Saturday.
There are seven games of invincibility, and the morale raised by the good moment. Internacional, on the other hand, focuses on just remaining in the 1st division, as the team is playing in parallel with the Libertadores and advanced to the semifinals of the competition. Their opponent will be Fluminense.
Due to the greater wear and tear of the squad from Rio Grande do Sul, Goiás will be able to take the opportunity to impose itself physically, and with the support of its fans, to win three more important points, not only to move further and further away from the relegation zone, but also to approaching the qualification zone of the Copa Sudamericana.
Tip 2: tie
Despite the moment of instability, Internacional is looking to score, even away from home, so as not to get complicated in this 2nd round of the Brazilian Championship. Throughout the season, the team showed that the squad would not be able to withstand the dispute of two competitions, which has been taking its toll now.
However, Coudet’s charges managed a goalless draw against Flamengo at Maracanã, and are in a position to achieve the same feat playing in Goiânia this Saturday. The expectation that remains is how the posture will be in front of the Goiás team, since Colorado’s biggest concern at this moment is the conquest of the Libertadores.
Therefore, we believe that a draw is a good betting possibility for the Goiás vs Internacional prediction, since this result would not be all bad in terms of the table, both for the Esmeraldino team and for Colorado.
Prediction 3: Both teams score (yes)
Internacional must play with a good part of its starting lineup to avoid any complications, and also not to be overtaken by Goiás itself, which is right behind in the Brazilian Championship standings.
Therefore, we believe that the game in Goiânia, at Estádio Hailé Pinheiro, will be open, since Goiás also needs to score to move away from the relegation zone. Due to this scenario, we believe that this Saturday’s match will have the score changed by both teams.
