On Sunday Palmeiras went high of the Brazilian league desk. They’ve taken 20 factors from the final potential 24, and with 11 rounds to go, momentum behind them and rivals faltering, they’re favourites to take the title.

One thing should go badly flawed in Wednesday’s second leg to cease Palmeiras reaching the final 4.  The dream is alive of a second continental title – 19 years after Scolari led them to their earlier Libertadores win.

Why, then, is a controversial appointment proving so profitable? Maybe as a result of the problem has performed to his strengths.

Over the course of his profession, Scolari has stood out as a gaggle former, a charismatic father determine, each blunt talking and nostalgic, who’s proficient at establishing a constructive ambiance. His 2002 World Cup profitable squad had been dubbed ‘the Scolari household.’

And now comes the enterprise finish of the season, with the prospect of profitable the league, the Libertadores and, particularly with Actual Madrid in a transitionary stage, the Membership World Cup. Lifting that prize would full the redemption of Luiz Felipe Scolari.
