Palmeiras was placed at 3rd position. They made 68 points in the table. They made 54 goals and 37 assists. While Goias was placed at 10th position. They made 49 points in the table. They made 42 goals and 23 assists. Palmeiras are undoubtedly one of the best teams in the league on a name-to-name basis, and they are clearly superior than Goias if we consider the visitors should be extremely depleted ahead of this fixture.
Palmeiras have already secured a spot in the 2020 Copa Libertadores group stage, though, so they have nothing to play for in this game.
Palmeiras should be close to full strength ahead of this match. Their lone absentee will be center-back Gustavo Gomez, who has been ruled out for the remainder of the year with a knee injury.
Including Michael, up to nine players might miss out on this match. The list includes Yago Fernando, Paulo Ricardo, Miguel Ferreira, Daniel Guedes, Jean Carlos, Renatinho, David Duarte and Walter. Despite Palmeiras’ poor run of recent and their ongoing three-game losing streak, they should be able to bounce back with a win here against a Goias side that have absolutely nothing to play for since they already secured a 2020 Copa Sudamericana berth.
