Last Sunday, the 1st, the Palm trees entered the field, with the reserve team, for the duel against Red Bull Bragantino, away from home.
In the search for Botafogo, the isolated leader of the Brazilian Championship, Alviverde stumbled and saw the Rio club with a chance to extend its advantage even further.
Palmeiras took the lead after Endrick found the net, but saw Red Bull Bragantino equalize and turn the match around, which ended 2-1 for Massa Bruta.
For Marília Ruiz, the defeat of Abel Ferreira’s team had ‘two good news’, even with the result that made Alviverde fall two positions in the Brasileirão Série A table.
“Despite the bad result, there is two good news: Endrick, he needs to see that Endrick is a good player, Real Madrid thinks so and he doesn’t think so much; and Luis Guilherme on the left”, said the commentator on the Band’s ‘Apito Final’ program,
“Because Arthur, who is a bet of his, in fact, is a player that he insisted that Palmeiras sign in April and from the start it works out very well, even before Dudu got injured he was on the bench, he didn’t travel to the Bolivia to play, he was playing well on the right, now on the left, it’s not possible”, concluded Marília Ruiz.
