Player to Watch: Artur
The 25-year-old has been one of the stars of Palmeiras' season this term. The left-wing player has been leading the scoring charts for the club with five league goals and a couple of assists in 17 matches played. However, he has been simply terrific in the Copa Libertadores scoring five times while participating in seven games.
Artur's form has been impressive, especially considering that he has been at the club for a relatively short time. He joined Palmeiras at the start of April this year and in only four months has become a top player for the team. Artur was developed in Palmeiras's youth academy but didn't get many chances to play for the senior team. After being sold to Bragantino for three years, he was brought back this past spring.
Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.
