[LIVE TV!!] Livestream: Palmeiras vs Santos Live TV 8 October 2023
50pm) After a glorious spell in the 1990s, which culminated in the club’s only Libertadores to date in 1999, Palmeiras declined, suffering relegation twice and amassing debts. Yet through responsible management, the construction of a modern arena and the backing of wealthy sponsors, they become one of Brazil’s most successful sides in recent years. National titles in 2016 and 2018 cemented Palmeiras’ reputation as Brazil’s most decorated club domestically. But a series of painful Libertadores exits mean continental triumph remains elusive. After bringing in big-money stars for 2018 and 2019, Palmeiras went into this season with a new strategy. Journalist De Laurentiis says: “Several promising athletes were promoted from the academy, like Patrick de Paula, Gabriel Menino and Danilo – as well as Gabriel Veron. ”The last of the names mentioned is perhaps the most exciting, and has been heavily linked with Manchester United. But he may be on the bench on Saturday, his lightning pace and skill saved for the second half. The other three meanwhile, are likely to start in midfield, looking to use their passing range to release Palmeiras’ forwards. Most in Brazil have Palmeiras down as the slight favourites, owing to their superior resources and stronger bench. Yet the stress of the situation makes predictions difficult. Lima’s advice for dealing with the pressure would be the same Pelé gave him sixty years ago. “You have to remember how you got to the final, ” he says. “You can’t think, ‘The opponent is stronger, or has this or that. Those near misses have bred a Libertadores fervour among the fanbase, who sing of their “obsession” for it. For Santos, on the other hand, the Libertadores is so special because it is the competition that lifts them up when they are down. They were the first Brazilian side to claim a continental title, Pele’s team winning back-to-back in 1962 and 1963, and experienced success again in 2011 with a team led by a teenage Neymar. Lima, a young presence in the team of the early sixties who played almost 700 times for the club, tells i: “The Libertadores was always special.

He wears a Virgin Mary t-shirt – as well as his lucky underwear – and prays beside the pitch. Freitas believes it is a motivational ploy: “Cuca is a master of creating narrative using faith. Most Brazilian players are Christians, so it works. ”Cuca, and his Virgin Mary t-shirt, celebrates victory over Gremio in the quarter-final (Photo: Getty)However much they believe, though, overcoming a strong Palmeiras side, that also features a healthy quota of promising youngsters, remains a tough ask. Palmeiras look to turn ‘obsession’ into reality in Copa Libertadores finalThough it sits resplendent in the heart of Rio de Janeiro, some will tell you that the Maracana stadium speaks with a Sao Paulo accent. It is a provocation. There has long been rivalry between Rio de Janeiro and its neighbouring state Sao Paulo. But in the provocation, there is more than a kernel of truth. Since its inauguration in 1950, Sao Paulo clubs have lifted silverware in the Maracana 16 times. And on Saturday, 16 will become 17.

It happened with Robinho’s generation [in 2003], it happened with Neymar’s generation and it’s happened again now. “When [the manager] Jesulado left, we were talking about avoiding relegation, but [his replacement] Cuca had an immediate impact. ”To support their two star players, jinking wingers Marinho and Yeferson Soteldo, Cuca has called upon several academy products. He has handed chances to teenage forward Kaio Jorge, now Santos’ top scorer in the Libertadores, as well as fellow youth team products Sandry and goalkeeper John.

Portuguese Abel Ferreira arrived in October and his direct, attacking tactics and refreshing honesty have made a positive impression. In the semi-final against River Plate, Palmeiras won the away leg 3-0. But they were, as Ferreira admitted, a little fortunate to get through after River won the return 2-0 and forced save after save from goalkeeper Weverton. If Ferreira does now go on to win the Libertadores, he will become the second Portuguese coach to do so in successive years, after Jorge Jesus’s Flamengo beat River Plate in the final last season.
