Here’s a comprehensive preview of the match, including predictions, team news, and potential lineups.

Match Preview

Palmeiras: Form and Key Players

Palmeiras have been a dominant force in the group stage of this tournament, finishing top of their group for the eighth consecutive time.

With an impressive record of 17 wins in their last 18 group matches, Palmeiras are favourites heading into this match.

The team’s performance at Allianz Parque has been stellar, winning their last nine group fixtures with a combined margin of 27 goals (34-7).

Key players like Richard Rios and Gustavo Gomez have been instrumental, scoring crucial goals in their previous matches. Despite some challenges, including conceding the opening goal on three occasions, Palmeiras have shown resilience, claiming seven points in those situations.

San Lorenzo: Form and Key Players

San Lorenzo have shown remarkable improvement under interim coaches Leandro Romagnoli and Gonzalo Prosperi.

After a slow start, they have a chance to win three consecutive group stage matches for the first time since 2019. San Lorenzo are currently positioned well to advance, being three points ahead of Liverpool and Independiente del Valle.

Key players such as Ivan Leguizamon, Alexis Cuello, and Gaston Campi have been pivotal in their recent successes.

However, San Lorenzo have struggled in away fixtures, failing to score in their last five encounters as visitors in this stage of the competition.
