Goiás had a terrible finish to their state championship and an equally terrible start to the Brazilian championship. Specifically, the hosts lost first to Ipora in the second semifinal, but advanced to the final of the state championship, where they lost twice to Atlético GO 0:1 and 2:3. In the championship of Brazil, Goias started in Curitiba, where they were weaker than the local team Coritiba. The score was 0:3, Goias completely failed not only in score, but also in statistics, not shooting even once.
Palmeiras has already won the Recopa against Athletico Paranaense, the Paulista Championship by defeating Sao Paulo in the final, won two matches in the group stage of the Copa Libertadores and sensationally lost to Ceará in the first round of the Brazilian Serie A. What is doubly surprising is that Palmeiras despite failing to South America's strongest team in terms of possession, won against the Greens in the number of shots. Overall, Ceará had a great match, there is no doubt that the black and white are in great shape. The loss in the first round of the Serie A forces Palmeiras to play exclusively to win in the second round.
