Now the difference in goals is worth it..
The best thing is to just do the math at the end. In the midst of the many different situations that have already occurred in this edition of the Brazilian League, something else happened last morning: there are now two leaders, tied on 63 points each.
One of them is Palmeiras by Abel Ferreira. The isolated leader in the face of the deep crisis that pushed Botafogo to third place, Verdão did not overcome a 2-2 draw at the Fortaleza stadium, after a second half in which he played half an hour with ten men.
Gustavo Gomez’s expulsion occurred when Palmeiras was already losing (1-0), but the numerical deficiency did not prevent the Sao Paulo team from reaching a draw on two occasions, to obtain a point that may be vital to winning the Brazilian title.
Vital because on the other hand, besides the big theoretical rival of the season, there was no room for ease: in the visit to the team’s last stadium, América Mineiro, Flamengo won 0-3 and now shares first place. Lead with palmeiras. At this moment, only goal difference puts Abel in first place…
No one can laugh
Although still mathematically possible, Bragantino’s dream is becoming increasingly distant. It seemed to be based on the latest results, but now it is more than that: in Porto Alegre, at the Internacional Stadium, a defeat (1-0) dropped Caixinha to sixth place.
Hey BragabullThe team is now four points behind leaders Palmeiras and Flamengo, but despite the small difference in points, they are five teams ahead of them, which requires a miracle to reach the Brazilian title.
Outside of these accounts there is another Portuguese: the Cuiaba team led by Antonio Oliveira is languishing in the middle of the Brazilian league table, and this morning it sought another point in a historic stadium: 0-0 against Morumbi and achieves a solid ninth place. Maintenance, although not mathematically achievable, is nothing more than a formality.
