While things go not so well with the A-team, the youth divisions are doing actually surprisingly well, Palmeiras being the only team to have reached the semi-finals in all the ongoing São Paulo youth championships: sub-15, sub-17 and sub-20.
The sub-20 start their climb towards the finals this Saturday, playing the first leg of the semi-finals against Santos in Americana, the return game scheduled for 24 November (Vila Belmiro). The sub-17 last week lost their first semi-final game 3-0 to Desportivo Brasil and face the difficult task of reverting the situation this Saturday.
The sub-15 are already in the finals, having yesterday beaten Corinthians 2-0 after a 1-1 draw in the first leg. The grand finale is against Audax, scheduled for 24 November and 1 December. One of the Palmeiras players to watch is forward Tiago Pará, a likely star in the making. Stay tuned for further updates on the progress of our “Verdinhos“.
Scoppia che la vittoria è nostra!
