Best moments | Santos 1 x 0 Palmeiras in the final of the Campeonato Paulist

The 1-0 defeat in the first game of the Campeonato Paulista final, last Sunday, against Santos, in Vila Belmiro, should make coach Abel Ferreira make changes to the Palmeiras team for their debut in the Libertadores, next Wednesday. fair, at 9:30 pm, against San Lorenzo, away from home.

In addition to the need to turn around an unfavorable score next Sunday, at 6pm, at Allianz, the wear and tear on the athletes is another reason for the coach to spare some players from the duel in Argentina.

During the press conference after the first leg of the final, Abel cited tiredness numerous times as a crucial point in Verdão’s defeat to their rival. Players like Endrick, Murilo and Raphael Veiga are tipped to rest on Wednesday.

– I had a meeting with the coaching staff and said that we would only make the decision after this game. You saw that rested players came in and we will have to do an analysis. There were players from the national team who didn’t sleep, they had jet-lag – said the Portuguese coach last Sunday.

– Endrick had a problem in the other game, Veiga too. Murilo trained little for the national team… We had gone I don’t know how many games without losing, but it happens. Let’s analyze today’s game and see if we can change someone. Only tomorrow (Monday) will we make this decision to find out who is most worn out – he added.

In last Sunday’s defeat, Palmeiras had their best moment on the field precisely when Abel changed three players. Richard Ríos, Lázaro and Rony, who came off the bench, gave the team another boost.

The trio has a good chance of starting playing next Wednesday based on what they presented at Vila Belmiro. Abel did not give any clues about the surprises that may occur in Argentina, but suggested that they should happen.

– Within the resources we have to evaluate, see who was more tired. Today it was clear. I’m not saying all of them, but we haven’t seen some at their best. We have to see who will be better to compete in two days. Look, prepare, analyze and see the physical performance of our players and look at our squad to see who to select – he added.

Palmeiras returns to the Football Academy this Monday. Verdão will train on the field on Tuesday and will be heading to Buenos Aires.
