Palmeiras to win

There have been consecutive wins for Fortaleza ahead of this match but they face an uphill task against Palmeiras after the 3-0 first leg defeat. The comfortable lead is also likely to provide Palmeiras with the opportunity to sit back and play on the counter. The offensive form of Palmeiras may not be the best around but they have been able to find the back of the net quite consistently. This fixture should end up in a comfortable victory for the visitors.

Total goals over 2.5

Palmeiras are likely to face some level of resistance from Fortaleza coming into the game. The big advantage on aggregate, though, gives the visitors a lot of comfort and they are likely to use the same in an entertaining game. Fortaleza have not been producing too many tight games.

Both teams to score – yes

Palmeiras might have been defensively quite decent over the last few weeks but they are likely to come under stubborn pressure from Fortaleza, who have home support behind them. It is also very likely that Fortaleza will be keen on getting an early goal to get the home support going in the right direction.

Fortaleza vs Palmeiras Match Preview – Team News and Analysis

Fortaleza

Fortaleza have been able to enjoy decent results in the Copa do Brasil in the last few years. After having overcome the last 16 round in back-to-back editions, Fortaleza have reasons to be confident but the heavy first leg deficit is likely to keep them at bay. Coach Juan Pablo Vojvoda will be without the services of Fernando Miguel and Pedro Rocha due to injuries.

Palmeiras

Palmeiras coach Abel Ferreira will be focused on completing the job against Fortaleza. It is very rare that the team has lost a tie from such a strong position. Marcos Rocha, Murilo, and Eduard Atuesta are those missing from action due to injuries.
