The goals of the match were scored by Deyverson (57 ‘and 79’), Luan Garcia (64 ‘), Dudu (90’) and Keno (90 ‘), for Palmeiras, and Diego Souza (84′), for Sport Recife . In this game the home factor may be decisive, since both teams present considerable differences in the results achieved at home and as a visitor.


After 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, the home team is currently in the 4 th position, with 11 points won. In the last match, they have won at home against Bahia by (3-0), after in the previous match they have lost (1-0) an away match against Corinthians.

In the last match they played for the Copa do Brasil, they tied with América Mineiro at home (1-1). Palmeiras has won 6, tied 3 and lost 1 of the last 10 home matches.

Palmeiras is making a reasonable Brazilian Championship, in which it occupies a place at the top of the table, but it can yield more, since it has one of the best and most expensive squads of Brazil and is considered one of the favorites for the title . The home team has an attack that they are not playing at their best level, as they scored only 8 goals, being the seventh best of the competition, less than expected by the high quality of their players, while the defense, on the other hand, He has presented great solidity, because he suffered only 3 goals and is the most solid of the competition. Playing at home, as in this Saturday’s game, Palmeiras has 2 wins and 1 draw. In the only draw he had was far superior, but he failed to overcome the rival goalkeeper, who made an excellent display. It should be noted that he has not suffered any goals in this condition, showing again his enormous defensive strength. For the match against Sport, coach Roger Machado will not be able to count on strikers Borja and Dudu, the first for suspension and the second because he is being saved, since he is one of the 35 players summoned by the Brazilian team for the Copa del World.

Sport Recife:

The away team is currently in the 12 th position of the league, with 8 points won, after 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Cruzeiro, by (2-0). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Corinthians, by (1-1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses in away matches; against 10 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss at their stadium. In the last 10 away matches Sport Recife has won 2, tied 4 and lost 4. Their defense has not been very strong, as they have conceded goals in 5 of the last 6 matches for this competition. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 4 times and never got the comeback. In the last 20 home matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 5 of their 13 goals between minutes (76′-90 ‘); He suffered 11 of his 29 goals between the minutes (76’-90 ‘).

The Recife Sport comes from 2 days without winning and needs to rediscover its best football to try to get closer to the top of the table. The visiting team has a somewhat inefficient attack, which scored only 6 goals, being the sixth worst in the competition, while the defense suffered 8 goals and is the seventh worst, needing to improve in both sectors to make a safe campaign and without decline risk. Playing as a visitor, Sport Recife accumulated 2 defeats and one victory, being that the triumph was over the fragile Paraná Club, the last classified of the national championship. In general the team finds great difficulties in this type of situation, leaving many spaces and being pressed most of the game, so he suffered 6 goals in the 3 games away from his domains and when he faced quality teams, such as Atlético Mineiro and Cruzeiro, did not score goals. For the clash with Palmeiras, coach Claudinei Oliveira has doubts midfielder Gabriel and striker Rogério, but both must be available to enter the field.
