Match preview

2021 Brazil Serie A round 9, Sport Club Recife PE will play against with Palmeiras home. Sport Recife played out their second successive goalless stalemate when they drew a blank away at Santos on Thursday. In a game which saw Santos dominate with 68% possession, Recife were able to frustrate the hosts and reduced them to just one shot on target. The best chance of the game did fall to Santos when Kaio Jorge hit the underside of the crossbar, with goalkeeper Mailson scrambling back to keep the ball out of the net. Both sides were eventually forced to share the spoils, which means Recife remain in 15th place, just one point above the relegation zone. Umberto Louzer's men have struggled to score goals so far this campaign, finding the net just four times in their opening eight matches, the joint-lowest in the division. Recife also failed to score in their last meeting with Palmeiras, losing 1-0 in January. A victory on Saturday could help begin an upturn in form, but they can only move up one place to 14th if they were to claim all three points.

Palmeiras claimed their fourth league win in five games after securing a narrow 2-1 victory away at Internacional on Wednesday. Abel Ferreira's men took the lead just nine minutes in when Deyverson instinctively tapped the ball into the net after Raphael Veiga fired a strike towards goal. The visitors held onto their lead until the 65th minute when Edenilson converted from the penalty spot, after Benjamin Kuscevic was dismissed for pushing Caio Vidal inside the area. Internacional rarely created any clear-cut chances after their equaliser and failed to take advantage of the extra man, eventually conceding in the 89th minute when Danilo's tap-in looped over goalkeeper Daniel. Palmeiras remain in third place and have consolidated their top-four status, sitting three points clear of Atletico Mineiro in fifth. They are also just two points behind league leaders Bragantino, who are the only side yet to lose in this season's Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A. Ferriera's men have been impressive going forward, scoring 15 goals in ther opening eight matches and only Bragantino have scored more. However, they have looked vulnerable defensively, conceding 10 times; only Bahia have conceded more goals so far this campaign among teams currently positioned in the top 13. Palmeiras have won each of their last four league visits to Sport Recife and another victory on Sunday could see them climb to the summit.


Sport Recife possible starting lineup:
Mailson; Hayner, Thyere, Sabino, Junior; Marcao, Welison; Neilton, Neves, Everaldo; Andre

Palmeiras possible starting lineup:
Jailson; Rocha, Luan, Renan, Luis; Menino, Danilo; Scarpa, Veiga, Lopes; Deyverson
