In the midst of Palmeiras’ good phase, Dudu is increasingly writing and immortalizing his history for the club. The striker has achieved a significant mark and can conquer another, leaving behind names like Ademir da Guia and Emerson Leão.
With the goal scored in the 2-0 victory over Coritiba, away from home, for the Brasileirão, Dudu entered the list of the 25 greatest scorers in the history of Palmeiras. With 81 goals – a number that places him as the club’s top scorer in the century –, the striker shares position with Julinho Botelho and Canhotinho.
