Review of the 12th round and preview of 13th round of Brazilian Championship

This weekend we had the 12h round of the Brazilian Championship. Of the 10 matches, we hit only four in our predictions (sorry, but I’m coming back from the medical department). Corinthians are leading with nine points off the second position that is Flamengo. See below a summary of the main matches of the round:

Vasco 0 x 1 Flamengo

In the “millions derby”, Flamengo playing away won in a superb play against Everton Ribeiro. Unfortunately, the match was marked by violence of Vasco fans, where one of them died after the game.

Cruzeiro 3 x 1 Palmeiras

Cruzeiro are recovering their form. Thiago Neves is the main player and had another good match, where he scored a goal.

Santos 3 x 2 São Paulo

In Paulista’s derby, the first match of Sao Paulo without the manager Rogerio Ceni, Santos playing at Vila Belmiro, went three nil up, with three goals from Colombian Copete. Sao Paulo tried to react, scoring two goals, but with no time to reach one more.
