The Brazilian comes to its final stretch and each game becomes fundamental to the clubs’ aspirations.
Rooster wants the title, breaking a 50-year taboo. And he saw Flamengo, his rival, solve the game against Juventude in 20 minutes. The difference could drop to a mere eight points. And Flamengo has two games in hand.
The pressure increased when Santos scored 1 x 0 at Galo. Then came the reaction, with three set-pieces. Of them, two penalties that didn’t convince me.
And the difference of 11 points continues, now with one round less.
Corinthians wants a direct spot in Libertadores. He beat Fluminense, with a beautiful goal by Gabriel Pereira, and reached 40 points. It equaled Palmeiras.
Gabriel Pereira and João Victor are two future —next future— greats. They will give joy and money to the club.
São Paulo dreams of escaping relegation. And, who knows, with a spot in the preliminary stages of Libertadores.
Look down and saw Bahia tie and Santos lose. Youth lost.
Look up and saw America lose. And Fluminense lose. And the Hurricane loses.
Now, he faces Ceará, at home, with the support of the fans. If he wins, he climbs the elevator and reaches tenth place, with the same 33 points as Fluminense.
It just depends on him.
That is the problem.
