Palmeiras 3×1 Mirassol
On the first game on the new “grass”, Palmeiras beat Mirassol after suffering the opener in the second half, scoring the three goals of the comeback in less than 10 minutes through Gustavo Gómez, Raphael Veiga and Luiz Adriano. Wonderkids Veron, Patrick de Paula and Gabriel Menino once again put out nice performances.
Forward Hulk was in one of the VIP boxes with his family, enjoying the game, renewing hopes of supporters that he one day will pull on the Palmeiras jersey.
Palmeiras announced they will begin the tests of a new platform for selling tickets. The first time the platform will be used is for an open training session that will take place on Wednesday, one day before the match against Guarani at the Allianz Parque for the 7th round of the São Paulo state Championship. The platform can be accessed by the website www.ingressospalmeiras.com.br.
Besides his history full of titles in the Brazilian football scenario, Luxemburgo has always been a great persona. In his current experience commanding Palmeiras, he is taking advantage of the new social media tools to talk directly to palmeirenses, calling on them to attend games at the stadium or to clarifying rumours spread by irresponsible journalists. His videos can be found at his twitter profile @vluxemburgo.
Palmeiras’ women’s team enjoyed their first victory in the Brazilian Championship trashing Vitória in Bahia by 4-0. Unfortunately, in the third round the opponent were Ferroviária, last year’s champions, and Palmeiras didn’t stand a chance, losing 4-1. During the week, a new signing was announced: Bia Zaneratto, forward of the National Team, on loan until June.
Scoppia che la vittoria è nostra!
