In a game full of controversy, Palmeiras seeks a draw against Atlético Mineiro

The last Brasileirão champions have had many exciting contests recently, including a Libertadores semi-final two years ago. This Sunday (28), this time inside the Mineirão, Palmeiras and Atlético Mineiro were looking for the same goal in the table, touching the leader Botafogo. The team from São Paulo wanted to continue hunting for the first position while the opponent came from a very positive sequence of five straight victories, packed under the command of Eduardo Coudet. There were more than 53,000 people in attendance, including a beautiful mosaic demonstrating the campaign against racism, something that was much mentioned throughout the entire round of the Brazilian Championship.

First time


The confrontation started in an accelerated way, the VAR that would be a character present in the game appeared right away. In Palmeiras’ first big attack, Gustavo Gómez kicked forward and landed on Rony in the middle of two defenders. The Palmeiras number 10 gave a slight touch of the head to make a bicycle, scoring a beautiful goal, but the offside was marked with a little delay to spoil the celebration of the players.

After that, the chances decreased, giving more space for Atlético to propose a game. Gómez could have doubled the lead but failed to finish well from a corner kick. After that, Weverton saved the palm trees in two aerial plays by Galo, once with Nathan Silva and then with a kick from Battaglia. The Palmeirense defense failed again when his number 15 missed a pass in the midfield, Pavón took the opportunity to take it to the right and after cutting another defender, he managed to take away from the goalkeeper’s chances to make another save.

At the sixth minute Artur took him to the bottom line and managed to cross, Dudu unmarked himself and with great freedom gave a beautiful header, leaving the score the same again. The fouls were very present throughout the game, a way to stop the opponent before the play became more dangerous. As a result, the attacks failed to create great opportunities. At 35 minutes, Igor Gomes wasted a clear goal inside the area, the last chance to give the victory to Galo.
