Verdão often presents difficulties to face closed teams, especially when they leave behind the scoreboard. This was the plot of the defeat by Cuiabá and the draw with Juventude. In both cases, Palmeiras took the first goal in the opening minutes, as happened against Sport.

For Abel, the performance against Sport counters those who define Palmeiras as a defensive team.

– We, with the ball, have to be more offensive, create, reach the last third and do things, not just for having the ball. And that’s what we did. Today we finished 36 times, it shows a lot the aggressiveness and mental attitude of the team, which contradicts some who want to catalog our team as one that defends. No, it’s a balanced team. Perceive the opponent who faces and play what the game leaves, dictates. Today our players were perfect, especially on the mental side. Too bad it was only for two goals, it could have been more – he pondered.

Vice-leader of Brasileirão with 49 points, Palmeiras has the fourth best attack in the competition, with 42 goals scored in 28 matches. Flamengo (47), Atlético-MG (44) and Red Bull Bragantino (44) are the only ones ahead in the category.
