Palmeiras vs Defensa y Justicia: Storylines
The hosts claimed a satisfying result in Buenos Aires after an early goal from Roni put them in front and a Gustavo Scarpa beautiful free-kick secured the victory after Brian Romero's equalizer. With that advantage, Palmeiras should be finishing the job on their territory to lift the trophy.
The Verdao are also in need of recovery after losing against Flamengo in the Brazilian Supercup last Sunday through penalties. On the other hand, Defensa y Justicia are once again heading to an important clash as underdogs, and this time having to turn around aggregate score to be crowned. It doesn't seem easy, but Sebastián Becaccece's boys have surprised us more than once before.
