Isolated leader of the Brasileirão, Palmeiras will take to the field next Sunday (7), to face Goiás. For the 21st round of the Brasileirão, Verdão will host Goiás, at 4 pm, at Allianz Parque. The team led by Abel Ferreira arrives rocked by the draw away from home against Atlético-MG, last Wednesday (3), for the Copa Libertadores.
The Palmeiras team lost 2-0 at Mineirão, but ran after the loss, equalized the score and tied the first leg of the Libertadores quarterfinals, against Galo. The dispute for the spot in the semi takes place next Wednesday (10), at Allianz Parque. As there is no longer the qualifying goal criterion in the regulation of the South American competition, Alviverde will need a simple victory at home to advance in search of the third consecutive championship.

Abel will not be able to count on defender Murilo and sides Marcos Rocha and Piquerez, suspended. With back pain, Raphael Veiga needed to be substituted against Atlético-MG.
