John Textor, majority partner of SAF do Botafogo, cited two Palmeiras games in which cases of corruption would have occurred: in the defeats against Fortaleza and São Paulo, in 2022 and 2023, respectively.

Without showing evidence and stating that he reached the conclusion through “experts and artificial intelligence”, the businessman accuses a major scheme of manipulating results, involving players and referees. Palmeiras and São Paulo countered, repudiated the statements and promised to take legal action.

PALMEIRAS 4 X 0 FORTALEZA (03/11/2022)

Palmeiras entered the field against Fortaleza already knowing that they were the 2022 Brazilian champions. Before the ball rolled, Internacional lost to América-MG and was unable to reach Verdão in scoring.

The match featured a gala performance from Alviverde. Dudu was the best on the field, scoring two goals, Rony doubled the score and Endrick scored for the first time at Allianz Parque, in addition to starting as a starter in an unprecedented way.

PALMEIRAS 5 X 0 SÃO PAULO (10/25/2023)

Looking for a reaction in the Brasileirão, Palmeiras hosted São Paulo at Allianz Parque, scored 5-0 and could have scored an even bigger defeat.

In the first half alone, Verdão opened 3-0 against the team coached by then coach Dorival Júnior. Breno Lopes scored two goals, and Piquerez doubled the score. In the second stage, Marcos Rocha found the back of the net, and the Uruguayan full-back saved another goal, with a great long-range shot.
