Palmyras has presented more problems than usual for Brazil in the last two games, especially in defense. Still, the two clashes strengthened the championship leader, with a strong comeback. This Monday, the victim was Sao Paulo.
The 2-1 victory at Mormbay came with a goal in the second half – the opponent started with a goal in the 17th minute. At a loss for the most part in Choque-Rei, Verdão explained why so much is said about the team’s mental control.

Without Marcos Rocha, Able Ferreira’s commission once again preferred to play with Gustavo Gomez on the right when Verdo defended, with Luan and Morello defending. The formation is already struggling against Atletico-GO, but the team found themselves on the offensive and scored four goals at the end of the first half.
In the classic, the problem was repeated. Gomez and Dudu, the wingers on this side when Verdo attacked, could not correct the positioning without the ball. And it was a way for Sao Paulo to get very upset in the first half.
Like last Thursday, Palmyra was left behind and was slowly regaining its place in the game. But the selected positioning kept Dudu away from the attack, snatching away a significant offensive force of the team. Nevertheless, Verdão had a chance to draw in the first round. Importantly, along with Gabriel Menino, Gendry defended.
Faced with the absence of Able, who had a positive experience for Cowade, Joao Martزnez was the night coach and preferred to return from the break without a change. The right-wing correction came with the same players who started the game, holding Gabriel Menino to the defense for a while and finally releasing Dudu.
During the second leg, Sؤo Paulo retreated, leaving Cagliari to fight the Palmyra defenders. And Verdo patiently chose not to just pick up the ball randomly in the opponent’s area. He kept trying to exchange passes, reversing the drama, until he found a place.
“They have to run a long way to get to Palmyra,” says Boca. The sound of the crowd
With Mike entering in Luan’s place, at 17 o’clock in the second half, the Palmeiras started playing because they are more accustomed to hitting their opponents with hammers. Brino Loops came 10 minutes later and hit the post on the first move. Despite the insistence, no goals.
And then there was another change for Sao Paulo’s suffocation: Weasley entered the Packers location, and the game was close to the tricolor area. Faced with insistence, the tie with Gustavo Gómez, with the header, followed another assist from Gustavo Scarpa.
The result was already great for Palmeiras, who continued under Brasileirão’s isolated leadership. But at 50, after a series of corners, Morello turned his attention to the explosion of player Alvarades in Mormbi.
If you think only of Brazil, the result is very important because at the moment everyone is drying up the leader. Monday’s defeat was an opportunity to confuse the edge of competition.

But as has been the case many times in the 2016 and 2018 title campaigns, Palmyra has achieved a result that shocks its rivals.
Originally Sao Paulo, now ten points behind and he ended the game with a very bitter taste, is even more in contention this Thursday with Verdão in Mormbe, now the Round of Copa do Brasil. Is for 16.
The way Palmyra has won will have an effect on the state of mind for the knockout stage. Verdão, which was already in a good phase, comes even stronger. Apart from the ball they are playing in 2022, there is also a desire to win this team which very few people have.
