Libertadores champion, Palmyras advances calendar and boosts marathon
RIO DE JANEIRO, RJ (FOLHAPRESS) – Coach Abel Ferreira called the 24-hour rule in Palmyras. This is how much artists have to do to celebrate a victory or mourn a defeat. On Saturday (30) against the Champion of the Libertadores, Santos, in Maracana, the Portuguese agreed to make the method more flexible and allow their athletes to go a little beyond the celebration of the continental title. But there won’t be that much time to celebrate. This is because the Alviedered team is back on the field this Tuesday (2) against Botafogo for the 33rd round of the Brazilian Championship. Most likely, the decision was spared by the holders’ coaches. The duel with the Cariokas would be just a continuation of a marathon the team is already facing in the season, whose calendar needed to be squeezed due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. “There’s an exception to every rule, and I’ll allow you to break the 24-hour rule. There’s so much going on, we’re going up the mountain and we’re enjoying the landscape. It’s cool, but many others Things are there too. To achieve, you can’t get distracted by the scenario, “Abel Ferreira said shortly after the title in Rio de Janeiro. With the victory over the Libertadores, Palmiras, who was already a finalist in the Brazil Cup, added four more matches to his schedule: club club semi-finals and final finals or contention for third place and two games from Recop Sul-America, Defensa Against Y Justicia (ARG). The next 7th Doha saw the World Cup debut and faced the winner of the clash between the Tigers (MEX) and Ulsan Hyundai (COR). The players will travel to Qatar hours after facing Botafogo for Brazil. If it wins its first engagement in the Middle East, the club will decide the tournament on the 11th, the same date for the third-place feud. In the other semi-finals, Bayern Munich (ALE) awaits the winner of the match between Al Ahli (EGI) and Al Duhail (QAT). The game against Argentina’s Defensa y Justicia, for Rickens, still has no confirmed dates by Kanambol. This swelling of the Alvidae calendar led to a change in the decisions of the Copa do Brasil and the Brazilian era. For National, the Classic with Sao Paulo in the 34th round, which will be played in Morumbi on 5 December, was postponed to 19 February, Friday, and there is still no schedule set by the CBF. The 35th round against Coritiba would take place in 8th place, but that also changed and was transferred on February 17, two days before Choik-Ri. The Brazilian Football Confederation announced, soon after the title was released in Libertadores, the Copa do Brasies final was rescheduled. Previously scheduled for the 11th and 17th dates of this month, they were moved to 28 February and 7 March. Palmiras will face Grazio and go on to search for the fourth championship in the competition, which is already in the middle of the 2021 state. There is still the possibility of another game, which may be included in the order of synergy, even if it is valid for next season. If you win the Copa do Brasil title, you will be competing, on a date to be defined, the Brazilian Super Cup against the Brazilian champions. With the games confirmed so far, the club will play 10 games in 33 days from a confrontation with Botafogo, on Tuesday – recalling that Ricopa’s dates have yet to be defined. A marathon that has become a routine for pandemics this season, marked by pandemics, but it does not take players out of focus to look for all possible cups. Even 10 points behind the international leader in the Brazil Championship table, Team Alleyward, now in fifth place, does not rule out a fight for the Nationals, at least in speech. At the press conference after winning the Libertadores, Abel Ferreira confessed that he had not yet thought about the club World Cup, Palmyras’ next major commitment. “I haven’t studied it yet, I haven’t thought about it. I can’t answer about the tournament because I haven’t studied it yet,” he said. After the hangover for the continental title, with more than 24 hours to enjoy at least this time, it is time to start thinking about Qatar.
