Palmeiras vs San Lorenzo
Date: Thursday, 9 May 2019
Kick-Off at 01:30 UK
Venue: Allianz Parque, Sao Paulo.
Palmeiras have been in fine form lately and now host San Lorenzo for the final clash of their Copa Libertadores Group F, looking to seal the deal as they sit at the top of the table – as the rivals slipped up against the rock-bottomed Junior (1-0).
Verdao have bagged four wins and a single draw in their last five outings across competitions, starting their Serie A campaign in great spirits and building on very convincing displays against Junior and Melgar in Copa Libertadores seen beforehand. They will now want more of the same and we expect them very motivated on Thursday.
San Lorenzo trail two points behind the Brazilian rivals and travel to Allianz Parque looking to snatch back the top spot, but they’ve been far from their best lately. They’ve only ended a two-game losing streak with a 1-1 draw against Argentinos Juniors but this wasn’t enough to get through to the Quarter-finals after the 1-0 loss suffered in the first leg.
Palmeiras vs San Lorenzo: Head-to-head
San Lorenzo bagged a 1-0 home win over the rivals in early April.
Palmeiras have been in a lot better shape lately and now hope to show for it.
This will be the sides’ only second head-to-head clash ever as Palmeiras look to capitalize on home turf advantage too.
Palmeiras vs San Lorenzo: Prediction
We will now back Palmeiras to secure the important points and do so with confidence, as we now stick with a Home win to Nil at 1.95. We’ve seen them rock-solid here and it feels San Lorenzo could struggle to cope with a tough streak behind them.
Still, we don’t feel we’re in for a very one-sided contest on the day either and with such hopes, we’re now also backing a low-scoring clash with Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.66. We’ve seen Palmeiras regularly enjoying such clashes recently and now hope for more of the same here.
