Team News: Palmeiras
Thanks to a largely available squad, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Palmeiras boss Abel Ferreira to contend with. Breno Lopes (Stretched Ligament) won’t be in action.
We feel that Atlético Goianiense will need things to go their way to put one past this Palmeiras lineup who we reckon should be able to grind out a win.
We therefore fancy a good tussle with a 0-1 victory for Palmeiras at full-time.
Should be a close one.
