Palmeiras and Vasco da Gama will lock horns with each other in the Brasileiro this week. The match between Abel Ferreira’s side and Alvaro Pacheco’s team will be held at Allianz Parque and is scheduled to kick off at 1:30 am UK time on Thursday.

Palmeiras

Palmeiras are one of the biggest and most well-known clubs in Brazil who tend to do well in major club competitions and win silverware. Alviverde won the 2023 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A and are very much in the running for the title this season.

Abel Ferreira’s side are eighth in the 2024 Campeonato Brasileiro Série table at the moment. Palmeiras have picked up 11 points from seven matches and are five points behind leaders Botafogo, who have played eight games.

Palmeiras will head into the league game against Vasco da Gama on the back of a 2-1 victory over Criciúma away from home in the league. It came after a goalless draw with San Lorenzo at home in the league which followed a goalless draw with Botafogo on the road in the Brasileiro.

Team News:

Palmeiras are likely to line up in a 4-5-1 formation. Weverton will be in goal for the home team. Rocha, Gomez, Cerqueira and Piquerez will be the four defenders. Menino, Rafael, Estevao, Veiga and Lazaro will be in midfield. Rony will lead the line for Palmeiras.

Vasco da Gama

Vasco da Gama are a big club in Brazil and have a rich history, but they have not been doing well lately. Gigante da Colina ended up as low as 15th in the 2023 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A table and could finish even lower this time around.

Álvaro Pacheco’s side are 14th in the 2024 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A table at the moment. Vasco have picked up six points from seven games and are just a point above the relegation zone. If performances and results do not improve for Vasco in the coming weeks, then they could end up in the bottom four at the end of the campaign.

Vasco will head into the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A game against Palmeiras this week on the back of a 6-1 hammering at the hands of Flamengo at home in the league. It came after a victory over Fortaleza in the Copa do Brasil which followed a 2-1 win against Vitoria in the league.

Team News:

Vasco da Gama are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation against Palmeiras. Jardim will be in goal for the visiting team. Luis, Maicon, Leo and Piton will be the four defenders. Galdames and Sforza will be in holding midfield. Adson, Payet and David will be the three attacking midfielders. Vegetti will lead the line for Vasco.
