Palmeiras plans to pay a special tribute to Abel Ferreira and his coaching team in this game, marking three years of dedication from the current coaching staff.

Even playing away from home, the coach will be honored with personalized t-shirts, which will also be available for sale to fans.

For the clash in which Verdão, currently in second place, challenges the leader with a six-point deficit, the big news in the lineup will be the presence of Zé Rafael.

Player number 8 was automatically suspended in the game against Bahia, when he was replaced by Fabinho.

Furthermore, the team will maintain its lineup with 3 defenders and the full-backs acting as wingers, a tactical option that helped end the series of defeats.
