Palmeiras crowned champion of Brazil for the 11th time

After the South American Supercup and the Sao Paulo State Championship, Palmeiras clinched his third title of the year on Wednesday by winning the Brazilian Championship.

Already guaranteed to finish in the lead after the defeat of Internacional Porto Alegre against América Mineiro (0-1), the Paulista formation, coached by the Portuguese Abel Ferreira, released their brand new crown by crushing Fortaleza (4-0) in front of his supporters, who came in large numbers despite the cold and the rain. The “Verdao” thus reinforces its record of titles of champion of Brazil (11), in front of Santos (8), Corinthians and Flamengo (7), and Sao Paulo (6).

Sixth title since the arrival of Abel Ferreira

Under the orders of Abel Ferreira, who arrived at the head of the team since November 2020, Palmeiras won the Copa Libertadores twice (2020, 2021), as well as the Brazilian Cup (2020), the South American Supercup ( 2022) and the Sao Paulo State Championship (2022).

The “Verdao” had however started the season very badly (one defeat, two draws), but climbed the slope and took control, never to let them go, at the end of the 10th day. International goalkeeper Weverton, Paraguayan defender and captain Gustavo Gomez, midfielders Danilo and Gustavo Scarpa, and striker Roni are among the key players in the team.
