Palmeiras to Win

In the last five duels between these teams, Palmeiras has failed win. Even their last meeting a couple of weeks ago ended in a scoreless draw, despite Palmeiras being in great form and Sao Paulo struggling. In fact, that game broke the seven-game winning streak by Palmeiras in the league. Still, the guests are in much better form and we expect them to finally break through and beat Sao Paulo in this game.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The last five head-to-head meetings between Sao Paulo and Palmeiras have gone under 2.5 total goals, so we expect to see the same thing in their upcoming Copa Libertadores duel. Furthermore, Sao Paulo averaged 1.93 goals per game in the league so far, so they certainly know how to keep the score low.

Both Teams to Score – No

Both teams have scored in just one of the last five h2h matches between Sao Paulo and Palmeiras, so it’s safe to assume that we won’t be seeing goals in both nets in this match either. In addition to this, both teams have scored in just 40% of all Sao Paulo games in the league this season, while the same is true for 53% of all Palmeiras matches in Serie A so far.

Sao Paulo vs Palmeiras preview: A city derby in Copa Libertadores quarter-finals

The two teams from Sao Paulo will hash it out for a spot in the Copa Libertadores semis, so let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of the first leg:

Sao Paulo

One of the biggest names in Brazil has been struggling this season in the league. Sao Paulo is barely outside of the relegation zone at the moment with just three wins in the first fifteen games. That being said, these wins have come in the last six matches, so Sao Paulo is not in such a bad form right now, especially since the team also reached the quarter-finals of Copa Libertadores and Copa do Brasil. However, Sao Paulo has more than a few players on their injury list at the moment.

Palmeiras

After many days in the top spot in Serie A, Palmeiras dropped down to the second place after a draw with their upcoming rival in Copa Libertadores and a loss to Fortaleza in the last round. Still, Palmeiras is in great form with seven wins in the last ten matches in the Brazilian league, so they are the favourites to reach the semi-finals of Copa Libertadores. Luan and Meningo are injured and won’t play in the next game.
