Chapecoense arrives for the match after the first victory in the competition, conquered against Red Bull Bragantino. Although the situation is still delicate, with the club in the light and only 10 points added (to 12 of the first team out of Z-4), the speech during the week was of confidence and motivation to seek a new positive result.

With only one victory in the last six rounds, Palmeiras saw Atlético-MG take the lead of Brasileirão – the miners have 42 points. In addition to the advantage for the first place, Verdão, which is the runner-up with 35 points, was closer to Flamengo, which has 34 points and two games in hand.
At the São Paulo club, the idea is to seek an immediate answer this Saturday, in the last confrontation before the first match of the Libertadores semifinal – the game against Galo will be next Tuesday, at Allianz Parque.
