Palmeiras and Santos will compete for South America’s biggest football club competition; the Copa Libertadores final as both represent Brazil as Abel Ferreira and Cuca look to try and add silverware to their 2020/21 campaigns. Check out this WettenTips article for our Copa Libertadores prediction.

The CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores final boils down to both Palmeiras and Santos, who have proved to be the best two in the south american football competition that involved 47 teams from the very beginning. In fact, the two sides have managed to beat many expectations that fans will have had of them at various stages of the Copa Libertadores tournament.

Palmeiras SP Road To The Libertadores Final

Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, who are coached by the portuguese Abel Ferreira, managed to overcome south american football sides such as Delfin SC and Club Libertad Asunción in the knockout stages before upsetting the odds in their semi-final encounters with River Plate. The Argentine outfit were predicted to come out on top, however Palmeiras SP managed to spring a surprise.

Players such as Luiz Adriano, Rony and Willian have been crucial for Palmeiras in the Copa Libertadores 20/21 so far, with each of them having managed to combine for 14 of the goals they have scored so far in the football tournament. Furthermore, Rony has been incredible in front of goal as he has provided 7 assists and is one away from being the top assister in the competition. Gustavo Scarpa has chipped in with 2 others but Rony’s contributions can not be underestimated. 

Abel Ferreira has done a reasonable job since Vanderlei Luxemburgo’s fifth spell as manager ended with him being sacked, as he has managed to win 14 of the 24 matches (prior to their Brasileirão Série A match with Vasco Da Gama), drawing a further 5 and losing 5. Indeed, the Portuguese football manager has led them to the final of the Copa do Brasil in his first season in charge as well.

Santos FC Career At Copa Libertadores 20/21

Santos, though, can not be considered pushovers and it is something that Palmeiras will certainly be aware of when they face each other in the CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores final 20/21. The two brazilian football teams will know each other well, as they continue to play each other in the Brasileirão Série A.

Cuca’s team have not had the best of league seasons, but the Copa Libertadores Final will be the perfect opportunity for the former Brazil international to get his hands on some silverware this season. Like Palmeiras, Santos have had to overcome numerous challenges throughout the south american football tournament and have managed to surprise many with their performances.

They defeated football sides such as Liga de Quito and Grêmio in the knockout stages before causing a surprise in the semi-finals when they also dispatched favoured Argentine opposition in Boca Juniors. Santos’ players such as Kaio Jorge and Marinho have been crucial to their efforts in getting to the Copa Libertadores Final, as they have managed to score 9 goals between them, whilst Felipe Jonatan has been vital in creating those goals with two assists.

CONMEBOL Libertadores 20/21 Final Predictions

Predicting a winner of this edition of Copa Libertadores Final between Palmeiras and Santos is something that can be considered a challenge, although that means we could be in for a great final. The two brazilian football squads have already played each other twice in this season’s Brasileirão Série A competition and goals have been scored in their numbers.

The first meeting between the two Libertadores Finalists saw Palmeiras win 2-1 at home, although the most recent tie between the pair saw Santos grab a 2-2 draw. However, the form for both football sides is currently indifferent at the moment when it comes to share betting predictions, with both teams appearing to struggle for consistency.
