Distance from Verdão to runner-up in the 30th round is a record in running points – 10/07/2022

Verdão is very close to another national title. With four victories in the competition, it becomes unreachable and celebrates the 11th Brazilian Championship trophy in its history. The distance of 12 points for Internacional, vice-leader, is the biggest that a team has had at this point, since the championship started to be disputed by consecutive points.

After the 30th round, the biggest difference ever recorded had happened with São Paulo in 2007. At the time, Tricolor had 63 points, against 52 for Cruzeiro.

The data gives Verdão the right to dream of equaling the impressive mark of Flamengo in 2019, who scored 90 points in 38 rounds, an absolute record from the moment the championship started to have 20 clubs. The number of victories of that team, however, is unattainable this time, it was 28 triumphs.

To reach this score, Abel Ferreira’s men would need to win the remaining eight games. It is natural that there is a demobilization after the mathematical conquest of the title, but with the professionalism shown by the alviverdes players and the strong demand of the technical commission, this hypothesis cannot be doubted.

The 66 points in 30 rounds only represent less than Flamengo in 2019 and Fluminense in 2012, who totaled 71 and 68 points respectively at this point in each Brasileirão.

Palmeiras also have the most productive attack, the least leaked defense, are undefeated away from home and haven’t been defeated since the 15th round. Abel is on the verge of winning the only possible major title that he lacked within South America, and he abandoned once and for all the ‘pecha’ of being a retranqueiro and a coach with little repertoire. He is the greatest coach in the club’s history!
