This is a great time for the classic between Palmeiras and Corinthians as the locals don’t want to lose more track from the leader, Flamengo. The visitors still can fight for next Copa Libertadores and will try to win this special match.
Palmeiras took a risk today when they visited Vasco da Gama by not sending the whole team and it worked. Now, they are coming back home with 3 points and Palmeiras’ summer is still alive on their travel to the championship title. Now, they will play this Saturday against Corinthians, which is a hot classic game in Brazil and the reason for letting some players at home to rest and prepare for this great match. In the Serie A table, Palmeiras are second with 66 points and they need a perfect end of the season if they want to catch Flamengo, who is leading with 71 points and a pending game which will be played today.
Key players like Weverton, Víctor Hugo, Barbosa, Henrique, and Rocha didn’t travel to Rio de Janeiro to face Vasco da Gama in order to rest for this duel against Corinthians, so the team plan is working perfectly. Since the new coach arrival, Palmeiras have played 15 games with a great record of 11-3-1, and 4 victories in a row in their last matches are backing up their hopes to catch up with the leaders on the league.
Corinthians, after losing against the leader Flamengo, came back on track today and won against Fortaleza with a result of 3-2. It was not supposed to be a hard game for the locals, but after a paired game on the field, Corinthians scored the third goal in the 71th minute that gave them the 3 points. The team looked for this victory desperately, as they didn’t win 3 points since October, 3rd. During this month, they only managed to draw 4 matches and lost 3. This negative streak took them to the sixth position in the board and now two more teams want to take them down, so the pressure will be another factor to add against Corinthians in this derby.
Palmeiras seem to have the control of this match: The key players are available and will come after a good rest, the team will play at home, and their quality have been superior this year.
