With pucks, celebrations and cheers, Palmeiras fans make Morumbi their home

In the 3-1 victory over Santos, Verdão recorded the biggest home crowd of the 21st century

With Allianz Parque being used for a private event, Palmeiras sent the classic against Santos held this Saturday (4) at the Morumbi stadium and made the home of San Paolo an extension of its arena.

There were 49,241 fans in attendance, a record attendance for Verdão in the 21st century, breaking a record that stood for more than 20 years: a goalless draw with Corinthians in the Rio-SP tournament, in 2002, when 44,472 people del Palmeiras were in the same Morumbi this weekend.

In addition, Verdão also surpassed the largest crowd with a single crowd since the Public Prosecution of São Paulo began with determination, in 2016. In this record, this weekend’s classic beat Palmeiras winners 2 to 1 on the Sao Paulo, for the round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil last year. At the time there were 41,361 at Allianz Parque and saw Alviverde’s side eliminated from the national competition on penalties.

The Palmeiras fans had a good party at Morumbi, especially when Verdão opened 3-0 – the duel ended 3-1 for the whites. A show of lights, with the flashes of the mobile phones after the third goal, scored by Giovanni, 25′ into the second half, as well as the shouts of olé at the end of the match.

There were not even records of looting of São Paulo’s heritage. Palmeiras and Sao Paulo have reached an informal agreement for clubs to use the rival’s stadium when theirs is given over for shows and events. In March, Tricolor will use Allianz Parque, while Morumbi will be used for concerts by British band Coldplay. Palmeiras advisers try to prevent it.

Before the match between Palmeiras and Santos, Independente, the main uniformed supporters of São Paulo, issued a warning to the people of Palmeiras, indicating a “law of return” if there was harm to Cícero Pompeu de Toledo this weekend.
