Verdão’s final 19 video games unbeaten run, which regardless of having ‘reinforcements’ by Marcos Rocha and Zé Rafael, proved to be much more detached, with a midfield caught in the tricolor mark and an inoperative assault. The Brazilian Championship chief now wants a small win in the return duel, at Allianz Parque, to get the choice on the classification of penalties.

The get together and pleasure of the tricolor facet, which despatched the subject to the similar workforce that began in shame on Monday, broke the order of seven video games the place it opened the rating in the first half and then handed it to the opponent, giving the change to the highly effective. rival and achieve breath – and peace of thoughts – in attempting to enhance their place in Brasileirão.


If there’s any signal of trauma from final Monday’s exceptional return (20), he’s beginning to end the squad. The tricolor exponents met Rogério Ceni and ended up in a disaster of precept: they requested to play the traditional. And the São Paulo lineup was repeated.

And so, half targeted on Palmeiras, half pushed by lots of people who got here to Morumbi, with São Paulo beginning to utterly dominate the recreation.


Opportunities in São Paulo are beginning to present up early. At 2 ‘, Reinaldo superior to the left and crossed over to Calleri, who headed for the ball and demanded an enormous save from Weverton. On the rebound, Igor Gomes despatched the purpose to Palmeiras.

At 7 ‘, the right-back is once more the offensive exponent. He began a person recreation, handed Piquerez and completed at the backside. The ball additional deflected Murilo and left close to Weverton’s publish.


He’s an detached Palmeiras, whose midfield has confirmed to be a simple sufferer of the tricolor mark. Axis Zé Rafael, Dudu and Gabriel Veron, detached, didn’t produce and the balls didn’t come as they wanted for Rony to assault.

Better for São Paulo, who took benefit of an thrilling begin to rating a number of occasions in the recreation. In the eleventh minute, Calleri headed in Reinaldo’s free-kick and Weverton additionally needed to stretch to dodge.

At 15 ’(sure, you didn’t learn this mistaken), São Paulo got here in for the fifth time with an assault threat. At a big desk, Nestor and Patrick discover, guess what, Igor Vinícius, who as soon as once more submits a cross and asks to chop the protection.

After this particular bombing, Palmeiras was nonetheless capable of stability issues on their sides and stopped the tricolor advance. But the story is understood. Those who paint the purpose all the time know tips on how to get there higher than those that appear to have by no means entered the subject.

And Morumbi exploded at 30 ‘. Patrick, he all the time was, obtained a move at the entrance to the space, went in to chop the mark and completed with Weverton’s exit to open the scoring.


After the purpose, the tricolor Black Panther discovered time to invade the space once more and end once more, this time for Weverton’s protection.

But that is a good clearer signal that issues want to alter in Palmeiras. There have already been six submissions from São Paulo towards simply one in all Brasileirão’s prime groups, which, not like Monday, have reinforcements for tonight’s recreation.

There was even a strive, to push ahead Dudu and Veron to the again seeking the recreation in midfield. But Verdão’s best achievement was a rehearsed free-kick recreation at 40 ’, by which Scarpa supplied the move for Gustavo Gómez to deflect to the again line. Small, too small for a unusually dominated Palmeiras. There is hope for the second half.


The groups returned from the break unchanged and the board was set for the second half of the chess recreation. Alviverde goals to repeat what occurred on Monday. Tricolor, the reverse.

However, on the desk items, the situation attracts the similar as in the earlier recreation. That is, the reprimand in the Palmeiras dressing room ought to have the obligatory impact.

João Martins – in addition to the second – reversed Dudu and Veron and Palmeiras started to amass extra land. This makes probabilities occur. Danilo and Zé Rafael had an opportunity from afar, over the purpose. But at 11 ’, with Rony stabbing a cross the measurement of Marcos Rocha, Verdão sighed from its followers.


If the environment friendly marking in the first half exhibits indicators of wear and tear -like the second -, the Tricolor will go for all or nothing. Psychologically. Even a ball boy was fired for delaying the begin of the recreation.

At 14 ‘, Gómez fell to the tricolor stack, fouled Calleri laborious and began a riot in the again line.


If on Monday São Paulo wager on the growth as a technique to attempt to put together for the alviverde boat, now issues aren’t taking place once more. This time, each time the opponent does, the reply follows.

At 23 ‘, after a fast free-kick, Gustavo Scarpa pulled in half and kicked Jandrei’s purpose.

At 29 ‘, Léo climbed into the space and deflected a nook kick close to Weverton’s publish. Shortly afterwards, Igor Vinícius, one in all the highlights of the day, made a superb transfer to the proper, leaving Piquerez on the floor and crossing into Nestor, kicking the crossbar even tougher.

Time handed, however São Paulo proved to have learned from Monday’s errors. He neutralized all the shiny spots and managed to have a a lot calmer last recreation than the earlier Choque-Rei. The concern, nonetheless, is with Arboleda, who left the subject with a critical harm.
