What is the classic between teams from different states with the greatest rivalry in Brazil? Many would say it’s Palmeiras x Flamengo, as the two teams are the strongest currently and fight directly for titles on the continent. But for the PVC journalist, this is not the interstate classic.

Neto chooses seven ideal Brazil forwards for the World Cup
With the 2022 World Cup approaching, presenter and commentator Neto gave his famous comments on the possible squad.
For Neto, Tite should take seven attackers and named them by name.
“Hey, Tite, take Gabigol, man! Take Gabigol and Pedro. They will be important for you at set pieces, penalties, assists… no doubt about that. Gabriel Jesus is playing very well, I can’t help but say that. He is playing very well at Arsenal, but he has been in the game for two years. Take Gabriel Jesus, Pedro, Gabigol, Raphinha, Vinicius Junior, Neymar and Richarlison. You will win the World Cup if you do that”, said Neto on his YouTube channel.
PVC elects biggest interstate rivalry in Brazilian football
Even though Palmeiras and Flamengo currently compete for all the biggest titles in Brazil and South America, for Paulo Vinícius Coelho, PVC, the biggest interstate rivalry in the country is not between the two clubs.
“The biggest interstate rivalry in Brazil is Flamengo x Atlético-MG. Flamengo and Palmeiras there is a rivalry of uniformed fans that goes back to 1983 when Palmeiras fans threw a newsstand on top of the Flamengo bus in Guarulhos. But it’s not a cheerleading rivalry. Palmeiras fans are worried about Corinthians”, PVC said in an interview with BarbaCast.
The journalist also recalls that because Vasco has been in a delicate financial and sporting situation in recent years, many flamenguistas seek to seek Palmeiras as a rival.
“There’s a Flamengo issue because there’s no Vasco to worry about. Vasco is in a delicate moment, I hope he is not in this difficult moment in two years. Fluminense is in a good moment, but the rivalry of the last 30 years, in Rio, is Flamengo x Vasco. Palmeiras’ rival is Corinthians and then São Paulo.”, said PVC.
Neto points out why Rogério Ceni is not fired from São Paulo
“Four losses in a row and one win in the last eight games. If this sequence happened with a coach without Ceni’s idolatry, São Paulo would already have sent him away”, opined Neto.
“It seems that only the players made a mistake. When a fact like this happens (defeat), you don’t need the greatest idol in history and come to blame the players. Didn’t need to. He always do that. He didn’t speak as a coach,” the presenter fired.
In addition, Neto detonated the defense of the São Paulo team.
“Repeat a rat’s foot! You have no shame in playing in a team as big as this one (São Paulo). You are slutty! Rogério Ceni, do you think you are more important than the players?”, detonated Neto.
