Deportivo Tachira vs Palmeiras preview: The new start for the champions
The vice-champions of Venezuelan league have started the new season in good rhythm with four wins, one draw, and one loss in the first six rounds. The team is currently second in the standings, but only one point behind Deportivo La Guaira. Of course, their first match in Copa Libertadores will be a much tougher task since they are hosting the defending champions.
The reigning champions of South America are one of a very few teams that managed to win Copa Libertadores twice in a row after beating Flamengo in a memorable final last season. Palmeiras will try to win the trophy for a third time in a row for the first time since 1975 and join Independiente and Estudiantes as the only two teams who managed this feat.
