Gilson Kleina: Palmeiras must keep pressure up
Palmeiras coach Gilson Kleina has admitted he was greatly relieved by their 2-0 victory over Cruzeiro in the Brasileirão.
Kleina told reporters after the match that they must keep the pressure on: "We need to keep the pressure on those in front of us by winning, we need to keep doing our part. We have to always win, because then you can get points from whoever is in front of us.
"Let's keep this tune, we will move up the league if we keep this up."
The coach had one eye on the Internacional game on Saturday: "Let's focus on Internacional. Those with 36, 37, 38 points will have to do their part. It's much better to have more teams involved in the relegation battle."
Palmeiras will face Millionarios on Tuesday in the Copa Sudamericana and after that the clash against Internacional.
The relegation battlers are now only four points behind Bahia in 16th with seven games left to play.
