Corinthians Vs Palmeiras – Brazil is home to some hotly contested local derbies, with the country’s most famous and successful clubs spread across four cities.
Corinthians Vs Palmeiras
The first clash between the two took place in 1917, when Palmeiras was still known as Palestra Italia, a nod to the Italian immigrant community who were the club’s original fans.

This tie has produced some memorable matches over the years, some due to the quality of the football and others due to the battles between the two sides. When the Giants meet, passions run high among players and fans alike.
The final clash between the pair will take place on Sunday in the 2014 Campeonato Paulista, or São Paulo state tournament. The “Estaduais,” as they are called, are an important part of the Brazilian calendar, despite growing opposition to their existence.
After a couple of years of relative turmoil on and off the pitch, visitors Palmeiras enter the fray as a more stable outfit. Things are not going well in the city for O Timao, champions of the Club World Cup a year ago.

Brazil’s players are unhappy with many of the conditions they find themselves in, including frequent salary delays and the current schedule. However, the recent invasion of Corinthians’ training ground by angry supporters, as reported by ESPN, was a major reality check even for those with little sympathy for the players’ cause.
Less than two weeks after that incident, several players left Corinthians, including former Brazilian football golden boy Alexandre Pato and former Porto midfielder Ibson.
The most remarkable thing, however, is the departure of captain Paulo Andre. The central defender was not only the captain of the club, but also the leader of the Bom Senso movement. He moved to China, citing fan aggression and family suffering as the reasons for the move, reports UOL (in Portuguese).
Interestingly, Palmeiras goalkeeper Fernando Pras will be his successor as leader of the movement in this weekend’s game.

What caused the fans to worry? Corinthians’ poor form in the state tournament, leading to a first-round exit, doesn’t help. It’s a sad state of affairs and the players will be hoping for some much-needed success in the derby to ease some of the tension.
Off the field, it’s hard times for Brazilian football players. On the field, they are more united than ever.
Both of Brasileirao’s standout defenders of the 2012 season have had their ups and downs since then, but this time they will be battling it out on the wings.
Fagner is perhaps the best right-back available in Brazil and is expected to pose a threat from his deep-lying position. He’ll face one of the best opponents he’ll face in the state championships, though.

Attacking defenders are an important part of most Brazilian teams and games can be won or lost on the wings.
The departure of Paulo Andre has benefited the Corinthians man, with substitute Felipe joining the excellent Gilles at centre-back.
This time, one of the youngest strike associations in Brazil’s top club will test Alan Kardek and the cheerful Leandro.
Leandro, who was briefly compared to Neymar when he first arrived at Gremio in 2011, has been able to get his career back on track over the past year and will require close monitoring throughout the match.

Neither player is guaranteed to feature, but could the game be a new signing that benefits their team?
Judson, who arrived from Sao Paulo as part of the Pato trade, is an experienced footballer who spent several years with Shakhtar Donetsk. With an eye for the ball and excellent technique, he will bring great attacking quality to Corinthians.
On the other hand, Bruno Cesar is a former Corinthians player who has just returned from the Middle East. Another top-class attacking midfielder in Brazil’s domestic football, he has a knack for scoring goals and can be a useful option off the bench.
Corinthians (probable). Fagner, Gil, Felipe, Wendell; Ralph, Guillerme, Bruno Henrique, Renato Augusto; Romarinho, Guerrero. Palmeiras (probably): Fernando Pras; Wendell, Lucio, Wellington, Juninho; Marcelo Oliveira, Wesley, Mazinho, Valdivia; Leandro, Alan Kardec. (@lineup provided by cynegeticus)
