Palmeiras beat Atlético-MG, last Wednesday, by 1-0, and extended their lead in the leadership of the Brazilian 2022. Even so, the club is outraged by the performance of the referee in Mineirão, which failed to score a penalty and annulled a legitimate goal by the team. In this way, a formal complaint will be sent to the CBF, which should also receive a visit from Leila Pereira at its headquarters.

The information was first released by the GE and confirmed by THROW!. It is worth remembering that shortly after the match, Anderson Barros, football director of Verdão, spoke to the press and exposed the Palmeiras revolt in relation to the performance of referee Marcelo de Lima Henrique, and Rodrigo Carvalhães de Miranda, responsible for the game’s VAR.
– Once again we need to talk about arbitration. We need to talk about our refereeing decisions. In the recent past, we had a situation in the Copa do Brasil that, until today, we have not had any explanation. We are playing a difficult and extremely competitive Brazilian Championship. We came to play inside Mineirão with a team like Atlético-MG and, once again, we had interference from the referee and VAR – he said, before adding:
– When the referee needed what would be the tool that would facilitate his work, once again we had gross errors. The penalty in Atuesta not having been scored was grotesque. We can talk more. The first Dodo cart on Mayke would be the first yellow, then he should have been warned with a red one. We had a rough start on Ron. These were grotesque mistakes.
Faced with the seriousness of the situations, Leila Pereira must personally go to the headquarters of the CBF, in Rio de Janeiro, next Monday, to reinforce the formal complaint that will be sent to the entity this week. To THROW!club sources revealed that there is a general feeling of indignation, from the squad to the highest summit in Palmeiras, even with the important victory won at Mineirão.
Verdão had already thickened the speech against the refereeing commission after the elimination to São Paulo, in the Copa do Brasil, in which VAR “forgot” to draw the offside line in the bid in which Calleri suffered a penalty from Gustavo Gómez, who ended up culminating in the goal that took the match to penalties and the defeat of alviverde. Behind the scenes, there was an apology to the club.
