Do Palmeiras have a rival in Brazil? The writers of the UOL columns give their opinion

Palmeiras beat São Paulo last night (20), 2-1, in the center of Morumbi, reaching the 19-game mark without knowing what they were losing in the season. By 2022, there are already 41 matches played, with 30 wins, eight draws and just three defeats – a profit of almost 80%.

Faced with the great phase of Alviverde, the independent leader of Brasileirão, we call the authors of the article. UOL Esporte comment on the following topics: Palmeiras have a rival in Brazil? See answers:

It is the best team in the country today. It is the only one with good performance and results. Not surprisingly, after all, he works from foundation to professional, with sequence and conscious investment. Which doesn’t mean it can’t be beaten, after all, that’s the beauty of football: the weaker he can beat the stronger.

Palmeiras had one day for Germany and one day for Real Madrid in the last two rounds. Build a 3 point advantage (with a good goal difference) for the Corinthians and 7 points for second, third and fourth places. With that, he will be able to play well in knockout matches and control the fat in Brasileirão. Alviverde’s situation is promising, but there is still much to be done.

At the moment it does not seem to have any competitors, with a point-of-flight dispute and in 180-minute games on knockout. The ability to compete regularly is even greater. The big question is related to the body part, because this force burned the preparatory steps to become stronger on Earth and this peak that appears in June usually lasts October / November. “Cut” can be those employed, oxygen group and optimal circulation that make feeding the legs tired feet.

Done. Not so long ago, the same was asked about Flamengo, but today, Palmeiras’ biggest challenge is to maintain their own order.

Done. Flamengo, Atlético-MG and rivals from São Paulo are the biggest challenges, although not all of them are candidates for the title. In addition, Palmeiras has already lost points for Ceará, Goiás and Fluminense, for example. There is no open domain. Not to mention the structural problems of Brazilian football that affect the most watched teams, such as the absurd calendar that causes waste due to injuries and / or being called on a FIFA date.

Maybe I’ll have a Rooster again. Maybe?

Yes, the Palmeiras have opponents, of course. Brazilian football has shown us several times that it is difficult to turn a good career into hegemony. Bad timing and bad judges are two things to balance, for example. Nor are we talking about the best actors in the gala. The Palmeiras fit, squad / coach / stadium “combo”, is the one that is working best at the moment. This makes it difficult to beat him in marathon points, but he is far from defeated in one or two games – that is, in knockout he has opponents (and many).

He is the one who is given the biggest chance to win the Brazilian, but he has opponents. Note that, after 13 rounds, they have only three points ahead of the Corinthians.

Today, it does not. He is ahead of others technically, physically, emotionally and technically. He went into the direction of magic, sorcery, of doing the impossible. I think it can now be officially called the third academy.

At that time no! But, if Dorival gets ready with Fla and Galo gets a more competitive coach, everything could change. But, I emphasize: for now, Palmeiras prefer to win four titles (Paulista, Brasileiro, Copa do Brasil and Libertadores). Oops, with Real Madrid alert …

Due to the strength of the game built, Palmeiras today is stronger than all its competitors in the country. But there is a rival in Brazil, yes. So much so that he suffered to win São Paulo this Monday (20).

At that time no. But the team will not be able to maintain this unbeaten record with this excellent performance. We will have knockout games for Libertadores and Copa do Brasil now, a heavy series. Abel will need to let go of some players to avoid injury risk. And in one hour the team will lose. But, today, Palmeiras are the most popular win over Brasileirão, Libertadores and Copa do Brasil, of course.

Not for now. That doesn’t mean he can’t win or lose one of the titles he aspires to. It means that no one has approached the team’s performance.

Palmeiras is the best team in the country and on the continent and, with undeniable reputation, loved by all titles, but far from failing as, for example, Bayern and PSG, the dominant, in Germany and France. In 2021, Palmeiras was also a leader with a higher score than the current one and did not even play for the national crown with Galo: a memory of longevity!
