Internacional - Form analysis: A decent start to the Brasileirao season

"The Colorados" started the season well after a disappointing previous campaign where they finished 9th despite being the vice-champions in 2022. They began with wins against Bahia and even away against Palmeiras. However, they then suffered an away defeat against Atletico Paranaense and only managed a draw at home against Goianiense. In the Copa Sudamericana, however, they turned things around after a couple of draws, winning against Delphín on their turf.

Juventude - Form analysis: Showing good stats since returning from the second division

They perform notably better at home, where they even managed to win against Corinthians despite being down a player and drew 1-1 against Atletico Paranaense. However, they had a rough time away, conceding goals against Criciuma and suffering a 1-5 defeat against Botafogo.
