    Palmeiras to continue unbeaten run
    1381

    Palmeiras are 10 matches unbeaten in the Brazilian Serie A but can’t shake off second place Santos. On Saturday, they will travel to 14th-place Ceara aiming to keep their unbeaten record intact.

    Ceara are winless in their last four league matches. Two of those fixtures ended in losses for the side. Ceara have picked up 11 points from 30 possible scoring just 11 goals and conceding 10.

    Manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has watched his Palmeiras side collect 16 points from their last 18. The Big Green have been brilliant scoring 11 goals and conceding just two during that run.

    Ceara have managed to collect just eight points from 18 in their last six games. The side has posted a zero-goal difference with five scored and five allowed.

    If there is hope for Ceara at the weekend, it could come in the form of a draw. Palmeiras have drawn two of their four away matches this term.

    Still, they have collected 11 points from their last 15 on offer. Scolari’s side has scored seven times and conceded three goals on their travels.

    Ceará SC have recorded seven points from 15 possible at home this term. It is their home form that is keeping them midtable. They are +3 in goal difference on their own ground having conceded four times.

    Although Palmeiras have been very good in front of goal scoring 19 times in 10 matches (1.9 goals per match), their away fixtures haven’t been high scoring. There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 11 of Palmeiras's last 12 Serie A away games.

    Ceara average 1.1 goals per game. Their last four Serie A matches have seen under 2.5 goals scored. However, when Ceara and Palmeiras get together, the teams combine for goals. The last four matches between Ceara and Palmeiras have featured over 2.5 goals scored.

    Palmeiras have posted a record of 3W-2D-1L against Ceara in their last six meetings in all competitions. They are undefeated against Ceara in five straight games in all competitions.

    The big question after 10 matches in the Serie A is over whether or not Palmeiras will be beaten this term. The Green have been fantastic and Scolari could lead them to a second straight Serie A title.

    Saturday’s fixture will see Palmeiras pick up another victory as they shut Ceara out away from home. The trend of under 2.5 goals will continue when these sides meet on Saturday.
