For Carille, Neymar’s presence helped make the atmosphere in Vila Belmiro more hostile and complicated for Palmeiras. He also valued the presence of Pepe and Clodoaldo, Peixe idols who brought the Paulistão cup to the pitch.

– He’s a big name in world football, he’s a star and different. When I found out about this I liked the idea, even more so to burn down the stadium. He passed quickly through the locker room, and I preferred it that way. He can be very loud, moves people, looks like a World Cup and a winner. Pepe and Clodoaldo were there too. Generations and stories, this only enhances the story and motivates a lot. It fired up the fans – said the coach during the press conference.

Carille also indicated that he does not intend to change Santos’ tactical system to play at Allianz Parque. After defeat in the group stage playing at Palmeiras’ home, Peixe’s coach criticized the rival’s synthetic pitch, which underwent renovations.

– Very difficult. We arrived here like this and doing something different is risky. I think it’s better to improve the offensive and defensive part against the opponent we’re going to play than to change the system. Players can feel uncomfortable and that’s not good for us – he pondered.

The big decision between Santos and Palmeiras will be on Sunday (7), at 6pm, at Allianz Parque. Peixe can draw next weekend and still take the title from Paulistão. If Abel Ferreira’s team wins by one goal difference, the duel will be decided on penalties.
