K9 strikes for Palmeiras

K9 strikes for Palmeiras

Keirrison got off to a dream start on his debut as Palmeiras swept aside Mogi Mirim 3-0.

The 20-year-old striker scored two and hit the woodwork twice against a very poor Mogi Mirim who are almost certain to be amongst this season’s strugglers. Cleiton Xavier got the other goal – his second of the campaign. Palmeiras are yet to concede and top the table having taken maximum points from both their games. See the game highlights here

São Paulo’s Washington was also making his first start for his club and scored both goals in the 2-0 win over Portuguesa. However, Washington’s first clearly came off Portuguesa’s Ediglê – though there was no doubt about the front man’s second as he thumped a header in from a Zé Luís cross.

Guarani could not have asked for a better start. After squeezing past Portuguesa

1-0 midweek, the side from Campinas repeated the score away to Ituano. Bruno notched the game’s only goal.

São Caetano saw off neighbours Santo André thanks to a goal from Cascata and are also on six points.

Santos had to come from behind against Noreste. Borebi put the home side ahead after just one minute. But late second-half goals from Rodrigo Souto and Kléber Pereira maintained Santos’ 100% record.  

Corinthians dominated the match versus a weak Bragantino. But the Parque São Jorge club could only manage one goal. The 18-year-old Lulinha, who was the centre of so much transfer speculation when he hit the scene a couple of years ago, swept the ball in after a fine move down the right flank. 

Barueri’s Pedrão is the league’s top scorer with 4 goals to his name.

Three sides: Santo André, Portuguesa and Mogi Mirim remain without a point.
