Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A. Round 9
Stadium: Allianz (Sao Paulo)
The central match of the Brazilian Serie A round 9 will take place in São Paulo, where Palmeiras will face Atlético Mineiro. The Big Green are quoted as slight favorites, as a home advantage can certainly become decisive in the confrontation between the leaders, but it's not a given that it will be so.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Palmeiras' winning streak stretches to six consecutive matches; last round, the Greens beat Santos 1-0 away, the only goal of that game coming from Gomez, with Veiga not converting a penalty in the 73rd minute of play. This victory helped Palmeiras maintain their lead in the Serie A standings. However, it should be noted that Atlético Mineiro and Corinthians are second to the Greens only on goal difference. In the case of a draw, Palmeiras will definitely remain above Galo in the standings, but not necessarily in the first position. We have to see how Corinthians will play tonight. Palmeiras' home stats are eighth in the standings, 7 points in 4 games, +2=1-1, 8-4 goal difference.
Atlético Mineiro sensationally lost to Tolima in the last round of Copa Libertadores, but that didn't stop Galo from making the tournament's playoffs from first place in Group D. After that relative setback, the Rooster beat Avai 2-1 at home. In the championship table, Galo is second, behind Palmeiras on goal difference. And if they win in São Paulo, they will very likely lead the Brasileirao standings. On the road, Atlético Mineiro has the seventh-best statistics: three games won and two drawn on a goal difference of 4-3.
Injuries and suspensions
- Palmeiras: Gabriel Veron, Jailson, Luan, Mayke, Piquerez will not play;
- Atlético Mineiro: Guilherme Arana, Keno, Zaracho, Vargas will not play. Dodo is questionable.
