When it comes to the end, Palmeiras’ big star has a name: Raphael Veiga.

The midfielder specialized in being decisive with the Verdão shirt in finals. At the club since 2017, Veiga has scored 11 goals in games of this type and is the highest scorer in history in this case.

This Sunday, at 4pm, at Mineirão, the player will try to maintain regularity in finals against São Paulo. The teams face each other in a single game of the Brazilian Super Cup for the champion cup.

And Veiga knows the competition very well. The two times he participated (2021 and 2023), he scored four goals. No one has scored more goals than him since the Super Cup was played again in 2020.

The last final in which he left his mark (two, in fact) was precisely in the 2023 edition of the tournament, in a victory over Flamengo.

For Palmeiras, Veiga scored in the following decisions:

  • Recopa Sudamericana 2021 and 2022 (two goals)
  • Libertadores 2021 (one goal)
  • Brazilian Super Cup 2021 and 2023 (four goals)
  • Paulistão 2022 (three goals)
  • World Cup 2021 (one goal)

The numbers place him well ahead of the second placed in the club’s history: Evair, with six goals (see top-5 below).

Veiga reached 86 goals for Palmeiras and tied with Dudu as the club’s top scorer this century. The number 23 now has 98 goals in his entire career.

The good phase in recent years has made Veiga coveted by Arab football. In mid-January, Al Etiffaq showed interest in signing him, and his manager informed Verdão about the possibility of a deal. The board warned that it does not want to sell the shipowner.
