Team News: Palmeiras
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the sole fitness concern for the Palmeiras boss Abel Ferreira to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy set of players. Henri (Tibia and Fibula Fracture) is out of contention.
It’s our opinion that Verdão look set to use the 4-2-3-1 system, beginning the first half with Weverton, Marcos Rocha, Murilo Cerqueira, Gustavo Gomez, Jorge, Danilo, Zé Rafael, Dudu, Raphael Veiga, Gustavo Scarpa and Rony.
Team News: Red Bull Bragantino
Thanks to a completely injury-free squad available for selection, the Red Bull Bragantino boss Maurício Barbieri has no fitness worries to speak of before this clash.
From our viewpoint, Leão da Zona appear most likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 system, settling for Cleiton, Jose Hurtado, Léo Ortiz, Kevin Lomonaco, Luan Cândido, Lucas Evangelista, Raul, Artur, Eric Ramires, Helinho and Ytalo.
We’re thinking that Palmeiras certainly have the ability to get the goals that they need when they line up against Red Bull Bragantino, who will not find it easy scoring a goal of their own.
Accordingly, we see a 2-0 win for Palmeiras when the full-time whistle blows.
