After beating Atlético-MG in a game worthy of praise, Palmeiras now has a theoretically easier sequence that can make your fans scream “it’s champion” or, if you’re one of the most pessimists, get very close to it.
In the next three rounds, Alviverde will face Botafogo (3/10), Coritiba (6/10) and Atlético-GO (10/10) and, if the favoritism is confirmed, it would be, in the worst case, if Fluminense also wins. their three games, with the same nine points of advantage, but with only seven games to go to the end of the Brasileirão.
The three teams have as their first objective in this competition not to fall to Serie B and are far from presenting a football that proves capable of overthrowing the leader. Of course, anything is possible when the ball rolls, but the São Paulo team has already shown that it is almost impossible to be defeated in the Brazilian. There are only two defeats in 28 games and an impressive unbeaten record away from home.
After having passed unharmed following the death against Corinthians, Flamengo and Fluminense and still having won the classic against Santos, yesterday’s confrontation at Mineirão was the heaviest on the way to the hendeca of Nacional. The round still helped, and Flamengo sank for good, while Inter lost points at home against Red Bull Bragantino.
While Palmeiras have opponents who are fighting to escape the Z-4, Fluminense faces Atlético-MG at Mineirão, Atlético-GO away from home and América-MG in Rio de Janeiro. The sequence is also not the heaviest, but the challenge of beating Galo in Belo Horizonte is not easy for anyone.
Internacional will face Santos at home, Flamengo in Rio de Janeiro and Goiás again in Porto Alegre. The sequence is also much more difficult for Colorado than for Alviverde.
