The substitution of Palmeiras complicates the leader Mineiro in the Brasileirao


The leader Atlético Mineiro was complicated this Tuesday with the substitution of Palmeiras, which is preparing for the final of the Copa Libertadores 2021, but could be crowned champion on the next day of the Brasileirao.

Although he had his powerful payroll at his disposal, Alexi Stival’s ‘Galo’ “Cuca” drew 2-2 in his visit to Allianz Parque in Sao Paulo, wasting the opportunity to extend the advantage to his guard, Flamengo, who equalized more early with Gremio in Porto Alegre.

The paulistas were always in front of the scoreboard, thanks to goals from attackers Wesley and Deyverson, and could keep the three points if the midfielder Patrick de Paula had converted a penalty, saved by goalkeeper Everson.

Those from Belo Horizonte equalized through the Argentine midfielder Matías Zaracho and the scorer Hulk against a ‘Verdao’ who protected the headlines for the final of the Libertadores that will play against ‘Fla’ on Saturday in Montevideo.

Equality, in an early match on matchday 35, allowed Mineiro (75) to maintain a distance of eight points over Flamengo (67) with four games to go.

If the Albinegros beat Fluminense on Sunday at Mineirao and ‘Mengao’ draws or loses with Ceará next Tuesday at Maracana, Mineiro will be crowned champion for the first time in half a century.

With no chance of winning the league title, Palmeiras, third, adjusted four games in a row without winning (three losses, one equality).

– Guild bitter to Flamengo –

With his eyes on the Libertadores, Renato Portaluppi also lined up the substitute to visit the ailing Gremio, in a late match on the second date.

The reserves almost took the victory of Porto Alegre, which would have been vital to close the gap to the leader and dream of the three-time championship.

The attacker Vitinho, on two occasions, brought the Cariocas closer to victory, but the ‘gaucho tricolor’, with one less player due to the expulsion of winger Jhonata Robert (60), matched the account with the Colombian striker Miguel Borja and the attacker Ferreira.

The point seemed little to both of them. For the rojinegros, for wasting the chance to approach the Mineiro; for Gremio, because the margin to leave the relegation zone is shortened (it is four points away from salvation, with twelve to be disputed).
