Palmeiras claim comfortable win over Juventude

Palmeiras put in another dominating performance as they saw off newly promoted Juventude with ease.

Palmeiras moved higher up the log in the Brazilian Championship by defeating Juventude 3-0 at the Alfredo Jaconi stadium in Caxias do Sul on Wednesday. The gauchos are yet to win a game in the competition after four games.

Deyverson defined Verdao’s triumph in his debut game by demonstrating on the field that he can compete for a spot in Abel Ferreira’s team.

After a deflected effort saw Palmeiras double their lead, Breno Lopes made it 3-0 and completed the scoring for the visitors, giving them a comfortable advantage.

The first half of the match at the Caxias do Sul was drab and devoid of originality as both teams struggled to get the ball forward into a good position to score goals.

Both Alyson and Luan were forced to leave the pitch before the half-hour mark due to injuries, forcing both teams to make early substitutions.

Following a fantastic through ball, Palmeiras had a chance to strike first through Deyverson, but Marcelo Carné was alert to make a save.

The Gauchos had the ball for the majority of the first half, but were unable to threaten Jailson’s goal.

Palmeiras got off to a strong start in the second half, and were fortunate to get the lead through the hosts’ misfortune.

Following a corner kick from the Sao Paulo team, William Matheus deflected a shot into his own goal in the 54th minute, giving the visitors the advantage.

Deyverson, who had played a key role throughout the game, then made it 2-0 by heading in a wonderful cross from Gustavo Scarpa.

Despite being down by two goals, Juventude went on the attack, had a goal disallowed, and also pushed Jailson to make numerous saves, all without scoring.

Breno Lopes scored three minutes before the final whistle on a Scarpa pass, bringing the game to a close.

Palmeiras return to action at Allianz Parque next Sunday, when they face América-MG. Juventude plays Sport in the Alfredo Jaconi stadium in Caxias do Sul on the same day.
