HT: So will Palmeiras hold onto their lead or will Flamengo come back in this match? Join us again for the second-half.
HT: Palmeiras will need to add to their tally in order to put the tie completely to bed. They have to be more clinical in front of goal in the second-half as they won’t want to rue their missed opportunities. Flamengo have to make the most of their chances in the second-half themselves as it won’t be easy to get the better of the Palmeiras defence. They know they cannot afford to concede another goal as it could be game over.
