Palmeiras – the shape of the team and its analysis:

The "Piglets" are clearly intent on winning trophies again this season under Abel Ferreira. They have been very successful and consistent so far. In the Copa Libertadores, the Brazilians won their group, edging out San Lorenzo for the top spot.

In Série A, the champions are also determined to maintain their positions. Yes, their winning streak was interrupted by a shocking 0-3 defeat on Fortaleza’s field. However, the club rebounded by defeating Corinthians 2-0 even while playing with a man down. They then managed a draw with Grêmio, which they had to salvage by coming back from two goals down.

Bahia – the shape of the team and its analysis:

The "Tricolor" are now owned by the same investors as Manchester City. Last season, however, the club was fighting for survival. They barely managed to stay in Série A, finishing in the "borderline" sixteenth place.

This season, they might not be the league leaders, but they are a team that can reasonably aim for the next Copa Libertadores. Although they lost to São Paulo after a couple of wins, they managed a solid 2-0 victory against Juventude.
