This game brought good and bad news for Palmeiras’ fans.

The good news is that Luxemburgo decided to play with a 4-2-2-2 formation. with Diego Souza and Cleiton Xavier as attacking midfielders and Keirrison and Obina as strikers, letting go the defensive 3-5-2 he was choosing for the team.

Not only that, Palmeiras’ goals was scored by Obina, who didn’t score in the past 6 months wearing Flamengo’s shirt (Obina was loaned to Palmeiras last week) and Keirrison, who didn’t score in the last five matches.

In other hands, the bad news is that Palmeiras’ defense looks week with only two central defenders, giving away the Barueri’s goals. This fact can make Luxemburgo change again the tactics, choosing a more defensive one.

Luxemburgo should not change the team tactics every game, at least until Palmeiras get some team work and playing style, which is lacking in these past games.
