Palmeiras defeated Goiás by 3-0 this Sunday (7), in the Brazilian Championship.

After the victory, coach Abel Ferreira explained the club's ( https://cricketbetting10.in/ipl-betting-sites/) planning for the duel and highlighted the squad management performed in recent matches. In the view of the coach, the rotation between starters in the first and second stage was an option to maintain the intensity

- We have to go for an intense team the whole game. This is energy management to have maximum strength. This was our intention - he said.

The Portuguese also stressed the importance of having Rony back. After six matches out due to injury, the number 10 returned to the team in the second half. Still lacking game rhythm, the striker hardly touched the ball, but pleased Abel.

- It's always good to have him back. The more solutions we had, the better. We have a short squad. And our squad is too small for everyone to play, to enjoy the game, and to give chances to the youngsters from the youth teams.

Who also pleased the coaching staff was the referee Jean Pierre. The referee, who was elected by 'Ge' last week as the best in activity in Brazil, won the congratulations of the coach for letting the game go on. Abel also congratulated the fans that filled the Allianz Parque.

- I want to congratulate the referee Jean Pierre. He let the game roll, I will equal for both. There was intensity, rhythm. He let some or other fouls go by, but he was very pedagogical with me. Congratulations also to the public and all these people who came to watch us - he commented.

Abel Ferreira also highlighted the importance of the crowd to support Raphael Veiga, who returned to swing the net after a period of drought. The coach evaluated that players need to create opportunities, and said that Wesley, despite mistakes, played a good game.

- I don't know any player who only gets it right. Even Cristiano Ronaldo missed penalties. We tend to focus on the problems, the players focus on the heavy. And today Raphael Veiga got it right. Wesley missed three times, but he created even more than other players. He was there. What players have to do is create, and success is when you give your maximum - he concluded.

The victory takes the National Champion to 45 points, six away from rivals Corinthians, second place. This is the biggest lead for Abel Ferreira's team since they took the lead for good in the 10th round.
