Palmeiras to Win

We ignored the fact that Palmeiras had a lot of trouble against their city rivals lately and predicted a win for Palmeiras despite the fact that they failed to win in the previous five duels against Sao Paulo. However, we still believe in Palmeiras after a draw in the first leg and we expect them to get the win in front of their fans.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Each one of the last five head-to-head duels between Palmeiras and Sao Paulo have gone under 2.5 total goals, so we don’t expect to see anything different in the second leg of the Copa Libertadores quarter-finals.  In addition to this, three of the four matches played by these two teams in the previous round also went under 2.5 total goals.

Both Teams to Score – No

Both teams have scored in only one of the previous five duels between Palmeiras and Sao Paulo, so it doesn’t seem like a stretch to assume that we won’t be seeing both teams score in this match either. In addition to this, both teams have scored in just 44% of all Sao Paulo games in the league this season, while the same is true for 50% of all Palmeiras matches in Serie A so far.

Palmeiras vs Sao Paulo preview: Another city derby in Copa Libertadores

The two Sao Paulo teams will meet once again in the second leg of the Copa Libertadores quarter-finals, so let’s take a more detailed look at the teams right now:

Palmeiras

After they’ve spent a lot of time at the top of the standings in Serie A, Palmeiras is currently on a bad streak of three matches without a win in the league, which made them drop to the second place. These matches included a draw with their upcoming opponent and a loss to the team that overtook them, Atletico Mineiro. In any case, Palmeiras is not in the best form at the moment, but they still have a chance to reach the Copa Libertadores semi-finals and keep their hope of defending their title alive.

Sao Paulo

After a very, very rocky start, Sao Paulo finally got into a form lately. In their last five matches in all competitions, the team has three wins and two draws, both against Palmeiras. The team is still just barely above the relegation zone in the Brazilian Serie A, but they should keep climbing in the standings. And if they can reach the Copa Libertadores semi-finals, their fans might not be too displeased with the season so far.
