Vasco resists the last two champions. Palmeiras closes with five from the base – 04/23/2023

Vasco starts their campaign in the Brasileirão well, despite the table initially seeming cruel, as they face the last two champions in the first two rounds. The victory at Mineirão against Atlético, winner of 2021, came a 2-2 draw against Palmeiras, holder of the trophy.

Both in the victory of the first round, as in the draw of the second, Vasco had neither more possession of the ball nor more submissions.

He had the intelligence to take advantage of the spaces. In the first goal, a counter-attack brilliantly led by Jair, which resulted in a crooked shot by Alex Teixeira, completed with a header by Pedro Raul.

Coincidentally, in the second round of last year, Palmerias also drew away from home, also with a goal by Pedro Raul, for Goiás.

The second goal, scored by Gabriel Pec, came from a loose ball by Artur. Pressure marking in Vasco’s attack field.

From the error in Vasco’s second goal to the brilliance in the Palmeiras tie. Artur scored for the first time on his return to Palmeiras.

Abel Ferreira changed the way of playing. Not just for advancing Gabriel Menino, with Richard Rios as second wheel.

Gave breadth on the left with Dudu and on the right with Garcia, substitute for Marcos Rocha.

Piquerez, returning from injury, stayed closer to the defenders for the three-man exit and to protect Gabriel Pec’s movement.

It didn’t go wrong. The spaces used by Vasco could also be used in a more traditional format.

What most disturbs Palmeiras at the beginning of the campaign are the embezzlements. Against Vasco, without Marcos Rocha, Rony and Raphael Veiga, the team ended the match with five offspring of the Academy: Garcia, Fabinho, Jhon Jhon, Endrick and Luiz Guilherme.
