Palmeiras faces rival São Paulo this Sunday (4), at Mineirão, in an unprecedented and unique final that is worth the second Brazilian Super Cup title for the current Brazilian champion.
If they win another cup, Abel Ferreira’s squad will write another important chapter in this story that, for many, already makes the current moment the club’s greatest sporting era in its 109 years.
Four players in the squad can catch up to Dudu, Ademir da Guia and Junqueira, and with 12 titles, become the biggest winners in the club’s history. Weverton, Mayke, Gómez and Marcos Rocha are one cup away from reaching the impressive milestone.
Recovering from a serious knee injury a few months ago, Dudu will be rooting for his teammates to catch up from home.
Luan, Raphael Veiga, Zé Rafael and Rony, with 10 trophies, can reach cup number 11 for the Greatest Champion of Brazil.
Verdão’s incredible run of recent titles has placed ten players from the current squad in the top-30 of the biggest winners in the club’s history.
If Palmeiras beat São Paulo and win the Brazilian Super Cup again, Abel Ferreira will also equal Oswaldo Brandão, and become the coach with the most titles won in the history of Verdão, with 10 cups.
The ball rolls for Palmeiras x São Paulo this Sunday, starting at 4pm (Brasíia time), at Mineirão, and the game will be broadcast on Rede Globo.
