After 17 years, Palmeiras can again win an unprecedented title
Champion of the Campeonato Paulista, Copa Libertadores and Copa do Brasil 2020, Palmeiras will have the chance to raise two more cups at the beginning of the season. This Wednesday, Alviverde faces Defensa y Justicia, in Argentina, for the end of the final of the Recopa-Sul Americana. On Sunday, you can win the Super Cup of Brazil against Flamengo.

In its vast gallery of trophies, Palmeiras still does not have either of the two tournaments. Therefore, the club will seek to win an unprecedented title in an official competition for the first time in 17 years.

The last unprecedented achievement, however, did not happen during a good phase of the club. In 2003, the team of then coach Jair Picerni won the Serie B of the Brazilian Championship and returned to the elite of Brazilian football.

The last international title won in an unprecedented way by the team was the 1999 Libertadores. A year earlier, the club guaranteed the Mercosul Cup, another continental competition that it had never won.

Palmeiras’ participation in the Recopa Sul-Americana and in the Supercopa do Brasil will also be unprecedented. The continental tournament, which started in 1989, was not played between 1999 and 2002, when Palmeiras won their first Libertadores. The national competition, created in 1990, was not held between 1992 and 2019. In the meantime, the São Paulo team won four Brazilian Cups and four Brazilian Championships.

The first leg between Palmeiras and Defensa y Justicia will be held at the Norberto “Tito” Tomaghello stadium, on Wednesday, at 9:30 pm (Brasília time). The return will be held at Mané Garrincha, at the same time, on the 14th. Between the two games, the alviverde team will face Flamengo on Sunday at 4pm, also at Mané Garrincha.
