Palmeiras Vs. River Plate, LIVE: minute by minute
With curious similarities with its previous and only Copa Libertadores, Palm Trees He is looking for a pass to the final of the American tournament before an injured River Plate that bets on the mystique that sometimes sprouts when everything seems lost.
The 3-0 achieved last week in Argentina not only seems lapidary but also has overtones of déjà vu. When Verdao won their only Libertadores, in 1999, they beat the millionaires by that score … and also in the semifinals.
Two decades later Palm Trees He is heading towards his fifth final cup with a team driven by the spirit of promises such as Gabriel Menino, Danilo or Patrick de Paula and the experience of their goalkeeper Weverton, Paraguayan captain Gustavo Gómez and gunner Luiz Adriano.
Proud of being the only undefeated semifinalists – nine wins, two draws – and confident to have conceded just one goal at Allianz Parque in Sao Paulo in the Cup, Palm Trees will receive a River badly injured by the win in the first leg and the defeat on Saturday that deprived him of the final of the Maradona Cup in Argentina.
With an open series, the penalty for accumulating yellows by the holder De Paula and the muscular ailments that have substitutes Raphael Veiga and Gabriel Veron in suspense could take Abel Ferreira’s sleep.
But the Portuguese shakes the insomnia with football. On Saturday the reserve beat Sport Recife 1-0 and put the team in the fight for the podium of the Brasileirao.
So from the bank, with Zé Rafael, the replacement of De Paula would come. Substitutes have been able to replace long-standing absences, such as those of the injured Felipe Melo, Wesley and Luan Silva, and Mayke’s covid-19.
“We go game by game to maintain the consistency of the victories, to maintain the consistency of our game,” said the DT.
Ferreira could repeat the tactical experiment that was so functional in Avellaneda (outskirts of Buenos Aires), where the first leg was played: three center-backs and two lanes to avoid the spaces in the rear that Marcelo Gallardo takes advantage of so well with Colombian Rafael Borré, Ignacio Fernández and the Uruguayan Nicolás de la Cruz.
