In the week of decisions, Palmeiras made a great result and beat Sport in the Ilha do Retiro 0-2.
There was a lot of unsureness about this game: Palmeiras had zero points in Libertadores da América, and Sport had 6, in two games each; mor than that, last year Palmeiras played Sport 4 times and drawed 1 and lost 3.
A defeat would make it very difficult to Palmeiras to go to the next stage of competition, since Sport would already have 9 points, the maximum Palmeiras would get. But since the defeat against Colo-Colo, Palmeiras has been preparing intself to the game against Sport, using the games in the Campeonato Paulista to test formations and get players in form, as Edmilson.
After four games without scoring, Keirrison finally did it, completing a volley from Maurício Ramos that would enter either way. In the beginning of the week Palmeiras coach, Luxemburgo, said that Keirrison should decide fast if he will leave Palmeiras or not , and return the focus to Palmeiras’ games; even scoring, Keirrison was subbed-out in second half.
Last night game showed also the great form of Diego Souza. After scoring the winning goal on Sunday, he was the best player of yesterday’s game, scoring the great second goal of the team.
The decision week goes on with the game against Santos, by the semi-finals of Campeonato Paulista on Saturday. In the Wednesday that follows, Palmeiras will play Sport again, in Palestra Italia, and three day later the second leg of the regional championship semi-finals.
