After the rather disappointing 0-0 against São Paulo last Sunday, Palmeiras yesterday again showed difficulties in converting a numerical superiority into goals: with 11 players against Paulista’s nine for almost the entire second half, the 2-1 score constructed in the first half and at even strengths remained until the final whistle. In spite of the weak performance and Kleber’s continuous virgin status, the game brought three points and the end to Palmeiras’ three-game streak without bagging a brace. After eleven rounds of the Paulista, the Verdão rest in sixth position, three points behind leader São Paulo (who have one game less played), remembering it’s the final eight who make it to the knockout phase. On Sunday, São Caetano await at the Anacleto Campanella stadium.
Scoppia che la vittoria è nostra!
