Verdau, meanwhile, is preparing for a return duel in Recopa Sol-Americana, which will play against Atletico-PR. Therefore, Abel Ferreira should spare the hosts against Inter de Limera, this Sunday

Palmeiras must go to the duel against Inter de Limera, away from home, on Sunday (27), at 16, for the Paulista Championship, with an alternative line-up. Despite this, Verdau is trying to maintain the good performance he made in the competition, as the team leads Group C with 16 points, the same result played by Mirasol, who played three other matches.

The match must depend on the care of coach Abel Ferreira Aim not to use some of the usual team owners. That’s because Palmeiras will play, in the middle of the week, the return leg against Atletico-PR, which is valid at Recopa Sol-Americana in Allianz Parque. The first confrontation between the two teams ended in a 2-2 draw, thus, Verdau wants to keep the focus on making the decision at home.

The choice is good for players who are looking for space in the team, but they are not always on the lists of those who start acting. Against Inter de Laimera, the names that are not the most popular in the “start 11” by Abel Ferreira, such as defenders Benjamin Kocevic and Murillo, midfielders Gilson and Atoista and striker Rafael Navarro, should be given priority.

According to UOL, a potential Palmeiras should be in Sunday’s game: Waverton. Mike (Marcus Rocha), Kocevic, Murillo and Jorge (Pequeriz); Gilson and Zee Rafael and Atoista; Rafael Vega (Patrick de Paula) Wesley; Rafael Navarro.

Having played just six matches for Paulistao so far, Palmeiras has racked up five wins and one draw, for a staggering 89% success rate – a record for a club in the competition’s history.
