Brazil Serie A
CS Alagoano vs Palmeiras
New promoted team CS Alagoano are facing the reality in Serie A after being crushed 4-0 away vs Ceara. I did not watch that particular match but reports says that they looked unorganized and their defence looked shaky. When facing last year champions tonight, I think we can expect to see the clear difference in quality between these two, at least chances should be good for that. Bad news for the hosts is that striker Fabiano are injured and their goalkeeper will be suspended here, after his red card last time out.
Palmeiras are coming from crushing another new promoted team, Fortaleza, by 4-0 at home in the first match. The champions from last season didn’t have any problems in finding the net against last year Serie B champions, and taking in mind which quality this teams has up front, they should be capable of winning without to much problems tonight as well I think.
The difference between these two should for sure be clear tonight. Palmeiras can continue from their great start in the first round and should be ready to control the match from start. CSA will obviously go into this as clear underdogs, but I dont think chances are good for any surprise to happen here. With that I pretty much mean that anything else than a Palmeiras win will be a surprise. So overall, Palmeiras to win with 2+ goals looks like good value for me.
