Sao Paulo, Oct 19 (EFE).- Palmeiras will try to extend its 14-match unbeaten streak in the Brazilian league when it hosts Ceara in Matchday 30 of 38 action here Sunday afternoon.

That contest will be played three days before the Sao Paulo club squares off in the semi-finals of the Copa Libertadores, South America's premier club soccer competition, against Argentine-league powerhouse Boca Juniors in Buenos Aires.

Luis Felipe Scolari's men have not lost in the Brazilian league since falling 1-0 to Rio de Janeiro club Fluminense on July 25 at Maracana Stadium.

Former head coach Roger Machado was fired after that loss; Scolari took his place and has led Palmeiras to a record of 11 wins, three draws and no losses

Palmeiras is in first place with 59 points, three ahead of second-place Internacional with nine matches remaining in the season

The Verdao will face a Ceara squad that has come to life just in time and is fighting to escape the four-team relegation zone.

Palmeiras strikers Deyverson and Miguel Borja returned to training on Thursday and will be available to play against Ceara.

Scolari, however, may shake up his line-up with a view to ensuring his top players are rested and healthy for their Copa Libertadores first-leg match on Wednesday at La Bombonera against Boca.

On Monday, Internacional will host seventh-place Santos, which is led by league-leading scorer Gabriel "Gabigol" Barbosa (14 goals).

Third-place Flamengo also is firmly in title contention with 55 points and will visit last-place Parana on Sunday with the objective of picking up three points and potentially narrowing Palmeiras' lead.
