Palmeiras will face Grêmio, in a duel valid for the 24th round of the Brazilian Championship, this Thursday (21), at 9:30 pm, at Arena do Grêmio, in Porto Alegre. But despite the duel being outside their domains, Verdão has a powerful asset to face this Thursday’s rival and could complicate the lives of the home team who try to close the gap to Palmeiras themselves. Currently four points separate the teams fighting at the top of the Brasileirão leaderboard.

Today, Palmeiras is second in the Brasileirão with 44 points won, the team that won in the last round saw Botafogo stumble and their chances of fighting for the title of the national competition increased. The distance to the leader reduced from 10 to seven points and in the next round Verdão has the opportunity to advance in pursuit of the leader of the Brazilian Championship, as it has created a taboo for Grêmio in recent years.

This season Palmeiras and Grêmio faced each other in the fifth round of the Brasileirão and the duel ended with a 4-1 rout, with goals scored by Raphael Veiga (2x), Mayke and Luan, Bitello reduced for Tricolor. But the result was nothing new, as Imortal has not beaten Verdão since November 24, 2019, when the Gauchos won 2-1, almost four years without being able to overcome their Brasileirão rival, a writing that can be maintained this Thursday.

Until then there are seven duels played with six wins for Palmeiras and one. Until then there are seven duels played, with six wins for Palmeiras and one draw. When the match took place within Grêmio’s domains, the fast was even greater, as the last triumph was on September 28, 2016, in the first game of the quarter-finals of the Copa do Brasil. In general, Abel Ferreira proved to be a powerful tormentor against Tricolor Imortal as the Portuguese coach has never been defeated by the Gauchos since he became coach of Palmeiras.
