First leg of the semifinal: Will Palmeiras defeat Boca?

Current form of Palmeiras

Before the semi-final match, let’s analyze the club’s form in tomorrow football predictions for its home championship. Palmeiras is in second position in the Serie A standings with 44 points. It is seven points behind the leading Botafogo.

Over the course of 23 games played, the “Piglets” were able to win 12 of them, they also ended in a draw in eight matches and left the field defeated three times, the goal difference was 38:17.

The club from Sao Paulo is approaching this game with an 8-match unbeaten streak, taking into account all tournaments. During this period, he won three world titles and won five matches. In the last round of the championship, they beat Goias at home 1:0.

Away from home in the current Serie A, Palmeiras shared points with their opponents in six of their 12 matches, won four matches, and were defeated twice. In the Copa Libertadores, Verdao reached the semi-finals, knocking out Atlético Mineiro and Pereira from the playoff bracket.

In general, we note that in the last 4 matches with the participation of Palmeiras, they were low, and in the last eight games the total under (2.5) was broken only once, in the away game against Pereira. In the Palmeiras camp, they still hope to fight for the title in Brasileirao.

Boca Juniors chances

Boca Juniors are clearly not in their element at the moment, at first they failed the season in the Argentine championship, frankly speaking, and took a place in the middle.

Also, they are not playing the best matches and are playing in the Argentine League Cup and even lost three matches in a row with the same score 0-1, and only in the last round, playing away confidently, they finally won with a score of 0-2. In the national championship, the team performed well, taking 7th place.

But now the club is not impressive with its results; after 5 rounds they are in 9th place with 6 points scored. In the 1st round, the team beat Platense with a score of (3:1). Next they lost with a minimal score to Sarmiento Junin.

Then they were defeated again, this time by Tigre with a score of (0:1). After that, Boca lost for the 3rd match in a row, now to Defense (0:1). But in the last round they managed to win an away victory over Central Cordoba with a score (3:0).

Match prediction

The last month and a half has been amazing for Palmeiras – in their last eight games they have five wins and three draws. It is also worth noting that the guests did not concede a single goal during this period of eight matches.

Palmeiras has not been able to win the last 4 matches against Boca at home. You should not expect an abundance of goals scored from this meeting – too few goals have been scored in Palmeiras’s recent games. Total under is the best option for this meeting. Boca Juniors’ last 8/10 matches in all competitions have also scored fewer than 3 goals.
