Another game that called my attention was Sao Paulo x Sertaozinho. Sertaozinho was ahead on the scoreboard twice. The referee decided to give 5 minutes of extra time and Sao Paulo tied the game with an own goal. This round was very bad for both Palmeiras and Sao Paulo, now Corinthians is leading the tournament.

Palmeiras x Corinthians
This great match took place this Sunday at Pacaembu. Both teams had not faced each other at this stadium for 10 years. After 3 years and 3 months, Corinthians was victorious. Jorge Henrique scored on the eighth minute of the game. A few minutes later, Roberto Carlos received a red card after a nasty tackle against Palmeiras' player. Corinthians with 10 players became fragile Palmeiras had clear chances of scoring a goal, but Felipe was defending everything. Cleiton Xavier decided to argue with the referee and received his second yellow card. There was no way to score with 10 players and the game ended 1 x 0. This was due to a lack of good players playing for Palmeiras.
