Palmeiras x Flamengo: a classic beyond the Brasileirão. Without a doubt, the clash is the biggest of the last decade. Namely, not only for the high rivalry created recently between them, but for the number of conquests in the last decade. Finally, credits to TNT Sports that brought this data as a curiosity on the networks and will be one of the points analyzed here as well.
Palmeiras x Flamengo: a classic beyond the Brasileirão
In short, at the national and international level, the Palmeiras is the happiest Brazilian club and champion in the last ten years, approximately. Namely, here it was considered an extension of the last titles disputed in Brazil and thus the Palmeiras took the lead. Check out the achievements of the three greatest champions:
palm trees (8)
- Brasileirão (2016, 2018)
- Copa do Brasil (2012, 2015, 2020)
- Libertadores (2020, 2021)
- Recopa (2022)
- Brasileirão (2019, 2020)
- Brazil Cup (2013)
- Libertadores (2019)
- Recopa (2020)
- Super Cup (2020, 2021)
- Brasileirão (2011, 2015, 2017)
- Libertadores (2012)
- World Cup (2012)
- Recopa (2013)
In fact, in case it wasn't explicit here, the fan rubro-negro I would have every right to question. Because a priori, following the order of the decade (2011-2020), Palm trees, Flamengo and the Corinthians were tied with six trophies each officially.
Corinthians: among many, long live Adenor Bacchi!
Indeed, lord Adenor is the commander of the helm of this last decade. Out of curiosity, as state or lower division titles were not counted, the Paulistão 2013 did not make the list. However, the coach's importance is indisputable when mathematics shows that of the six titles won, five are under the command of the best known as Tite.
The impact of his tactical variations, triangulations, high defense when necessary, interplay between the midfield and his wingers... the maestro Paulinho also looked like the player Tite. He did what perhaps Adenor would do on the field when he shouted to his men the movement he wanted. Intelligent as he is, Paulinho helped.
Carille: the last champion
certainly, Fabio Carille is the last champion on that list when he won with his team the Brazilian Championship 2017. Namely, a team discredited in front of the press. In fact, it wasn't a squad full of stars, but it was obedient to the requests of its commander and with a closed group it showed what a collective could be capable of. Out of curiosity, remember a little the Palmeiras today in relation to group power. However, with less stars and potential, of course.
Finally, as already mentioned, the states did not make the list. Negative point for Carille who did something that Tite got. Namely, being three consecutive champions of the Paulistan (2017, 2018 and 2019). In any case, history is written and Carille has merit in the book of Helm.
“We have to play à la Flamengo”: it was Mister JJ
Undoubtedly, even more recent in the public's memory, the era of JJ marked the titles and way of playing. In fact, the à la Flamengo it was immersive. Namely, it was compared to the spider's web Red-Black from 81 and even with the style rock n Roll by Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool. Jorge Jesus won four of the seven trophies computed on this list. Certainly, its importance is indisputable even in the move to the “eighth level”.
However, before talking about Rogério Ceni, it is extremely important to congratulate Jayme de Almeida, who is sometimes not remembered for his achievement as interim coach at Brazil Cup 2013. Very important title at the time when Fla began its financial restructuring process.
Now, Ceni enters the list as champion of Brasileirão 2020 and the Super Cup 2021 soon after it was JJ. In fact, also an important moment for the fan, but not as valued. Undoubtedly, due to errors in the eyes of the crowd, accumulation of negative results on the field and lack of personality in the way of playing like the Nation got used to the Mr. Finally, Dorival Júnior seems to be the next to join the list of champions, but that has to wait for the following chapters.
Palmeiras: among so many, the guy is already the most beloved
Abel Ferreira needs no comments today. Abel won four of the eight trophies counted on this list. You know, you still have the Paulista 2022 outside who account for five trophies in less than three years. A champion pathfinder to Palm trees.
Asian green it was already big. Felipão is also an idol and won the Brazil Cup 2012, undefeated, in addition to Brasileirão in 2018. Namely, Marcelo Oliveira also brought the Cup of Brazil Cup 2015 while Cuca took the Palmeiras to first place with the young Gabriel Jesus at the Brasileirão 2016.
However, what Abel has already created and continues to create makes the Portuguese the best and greatest coach in Palmeiras in the 21st century and perhaps in history. It certainly will be, if it continues like this.
