Endrick is one of the most likely to be left out of Palmeiras’ debut in the Libertadores. Even though he was not 100% due to pain in his thigh, the attacker played as a starter at Vila Belmiro, but was substituted in the second half against Santos. In addition to him, Murilo and Veiga can also be preserved for the return game at Paulistão.

– We decided that we would only make this decision after this game (against Santos). You saw the game that I saw. We are talking about players who came from the national team and didn’t sleep. Endrick had a problem in the last game, Veiga too. Murilo came from the national team, he didn’t play. This has good and bad things. Let’s analyze today’s game and see if I change them all, some, I don’t – said Abel Ferreira after the defeat at Vila Belmiro.

The person who can win minutes in the Libertadores is Gustavo Gómez. After a month recovering from an injury suffered against Corinthians, the Paraguayan was again involved against Novorizontino and needs to gain pace in the game.

The big decision between Santos and Palmeiras will be on Sunday (7), at 6pm, at Allianz Parque. Peixe can draw next weekend and still take the title from Paulistão. If Abel Ferreira’s team wins by one goal difference, the duel will be decided on penalties.
