Palmeiras will have a series of important and decisive games in the São Paulo championship and Libertadores Cup, starting on Sunday (2), away against Novorizontino, for the first leg of the Paulistão quarterfinals. The three other clashes are Botafogo/SP vs Corinthians, Linense vs São Paulo and Ponte Preta vs Santos.
Next Friday (7), the Verdão receive Novorizontino to define who advances to the semi-final phase of the Paulistão. The game will be played at the Pacaembu stadium, as the Allianz Parque is receiving new grass.
On the following Wednesday (12), back at the Allianz Parque, Palmeiras receive Peñarol (URU), for the third round of the Libertadores group stage. Palmeiras currently head group 5 at four points, having drawn 1-1 with Atlético Tucumán in the opening away game before beating Jorge Wilstermann 1-0 at home.
Palmeiras advancing to the semi-finals in the São Paulo championship (anything else would be a disaster) the games will take place on April 16 and 23. Then, on the 26th, refocus on Libertadores as Palmeiras travel to Montevideo to again play Peñarol.
Should Palmeiras advance to the finals in the Paulistão, the first leg is played on 30 April.
A busy month, every game a decisive one.
Scoppia che la vittoria è nostra!
