Live from Sao Paulo

Live from Palmeiras

The best: Patrick

The 88 shirt has good game opportunities in the most diverse roles. Originally selected as Calleri’s attacking partner, he was responsible for opening scoring for São Paulo. Then, he stepped back to form the midfield line and caught Mayke’s climbs.

Bad: Dudu has contributed very little and he is not to blame

It’s not his fault, but the fact is that Dudu didn’t add much improvised by Abel Ferreira and João Martins as an assistant to improvised right-back Gómez. Confused at scoring, shirt 7 was less supportive, stuck on defense.

chronology of the game

São Paulo started by hitting the exit at Palmeiras, which have long found themselves. And it was in a game where Igor Vinícius forced Veron to give up a corner, that the hosts reached the goal. Rodrigo Nestor took a tight corner, Palmeiras ’defense was unbroken and the ball still deflected to Gabriel Menino before Patrick’s chest was found and, afterward, Weverton’s net.

But Palmeiras hasn’t stopped pressing even a minute since then. And, at 45 ‘in the second period, he was rewarded. Scarpa made a good play on the right, cut in half and crossed from the left. In the background, Gustavo Gómez climbed up and accurately tested the ground to kill Jandrei.

And with extreme insistence, at 50 ‘in the second half, Murilo took advantage of the confusion after Scarpa’s corner and pushed the ball into the net to return the game in Verdão’s favor.

Patrick became Calleri’s partner and opened the scoring

Patrick opened the scoring for São Paulo

Rogério Ceni decided to change Jonathan Calleri’s attacking partner. With Luciano in nine games drought not scoring, the coach chose to put Patrick as a forward. In a short time, the choice proved to be right.

The number 88 shirt made a good pair with Reinaldo on the left and gave work to Gustavo Gómez, who was chosen as a right back. In the 17th minute, Patrick placed himself in the second post and took advantage of Gabriel Menino’s deflection to open the scoring for São Paulo.

In addition to putting Tricolor at an advantage, Patrick became Calleri’s first attacking partner selected since the start of the game to score nets since Rigoni scored against Botafogo-SP, in Paulistão – Eder group stage, against Red Bull Bragantino, and Luciano, against Athletico and Fortaleza, scored, but got into the second half.

VAR was triggered three times in the 1st half

The event in the first half featured at least three VAR reviews of important games. The first happened on Patrick’s goal. After Gabriel Menino deflected, the São Paulo midfielder pushed the ball back into the net. The referee, however, had to analyze whether or not the ball touched São Paulo’s arm, which was not confirmed and the bid was validated.

Subsequently, two bids in favor of Palmeiras were subjected to analysis. Within 20 minutes, Rony fell after Jandrei’s argument and demanded punishment. The referee ordered it to proceed. Five minutes later, Gustavo Gómez crossed, Veron headed in and Jandrei saved. On the rebound, Piquerez got through and the São Paulo goalkeeper once again parted with Rony. After a quick analysis of the bid, the arbitration ordered it to proceed.

Palmeiras just started in danger at 21 ‘

Palmeiras took a long time to get back on track after scoring the goal. At 21 ‘, Rony shared Jandrei, in a move the VAR said was not a punishment. At 25 ‘, Gómez crossed and Veron, somewhat embarrassed, headed for danger. Jandrei flattened as much as he could, over the line. In the 31st minute, Scarpa was hit from outside the area after Menino’s move. It’s close.

Alviverde’s pressure rises at the end of the 1st stage and continues into the 2nd

Suddenly, Palmeiras dominated the game in the final minutes of the 1st half, following the start of the 2nd, especially with the score going up. Gabriel Menino, Scarpa and Rony were the most dangerous, with lots of movement and mid-range kicks. Veron was looking for speed. And, after Mayke’s entry, which freed him from scoring, Dudu also started cooperating.

São Paulo lost momentum after the replacements

Rogério Ceni picked up two changes at the same time, in the 16th minute of the second half. Yellow Igor Vinícius and Gabriel Neves left, for the entrance of Rafinha and Pablo. Despite eliminating the risk of eviction, the changes have reduced São Paulo’s momentum in the final period.

In one of his best São Paulo shirt games, Gabriel Neves was able to squeeze the ball and take spaces from Gustavo Scarpa. Pablo Maia took a long time to fit into the lineup. Meanwhile, Palmeiras continued to dominate the field and began to trouble the São Paulo defense.

In the 28th minute, the tie was not very close. Mayke crossed the bottom and Breno Lopes, who had just entered, was hit by Jandrei’s crossbar.

The game in São Paulo: the intensity of the 1st half did not continue

São Paulo started the match with a proposal to mark the departure of the ball from Palmeiras. Counting on good performances from Igor Vinícius and Gabriel Neves, Rogério Ceni’s team managed important tackles in the first period, such as the bid that created the corner, in the 17th minute, which ended in Patrick’s purpose.

In the second stage, the intense rhythm loses strength. Gabriel Neves, who received a yellow card, was replaced, and Pablo Maia did not continue to level. At the same time, Palmeiras began to dominate the actions of the game.

Palmeiras game: Ignorance of goal, pressure the rest of the game

São Paulo’s goal took Palmeiras out of the game within minutes. But when he was reunited, he dominated most of the action, taking a lot of pressure, both with high scores, stealing balls, and speaking in games. A little more effort was needed against a São Paulo that dominated the force.

Last whistle is the password to confusion

After the final whistle, in front of the effusive celebration in Palmeiras, the São Paulo players toured Palmeiras. On the way to the locker room, broadcast cameras caught the side where Reinaldo dropped the alcohol gel totem placed in the tunnel. The road will still have an exchange of discussion between the athletes of the two teams.

Tite followed closely

The classic shows Tite in one of Morumbi’s cabins. The coach of the Brazilian team was accompanied by César Sampaio, one of his assistants, who followed the duel. The former midfielder played for Palmeiras and São Paulo when he was a player. The last call of the coach was attended by Palmeiras Weverton and Danilo.

Yesterday (19), Tite and César Sampaio were at the Neo Química Arena after Corinthians ’1-0 win over Goiás.
