A hat trick for Lenny

A hat trick for Lenny

A second-string Palmeiras side came away with all the points at Ponte Preta thanks to the performance of the in-form Lenny.

With the bulk of the regular first team already in Bolivia for Palmeiras’ Libertadores clash with Real Potosí midweek; Vanderlei Luxemburgo gave a run out to his reserves.

The star of the show was the 20-year-old Lenny who grabbed all the goals for the travellers in their 3-2 win in Campinas. After failing to score a single goal in his first season at the club, Lenny has now scored four in just two games and helped Palmeiras maintain their 100% record in the Paulista.

Despite the absence of a number of regulars, Corinthians had no problems breezing past Oeste especially after Adriano put through his own net after only two minutes. The game finished 4-1 and Corinthians went second.

São Caetano got back to winning ways thanks to Zé Eduardo’s goal against strugglers Mogi Mirim.

Mirassol moved to fourth after a 3-1 away win at Bragantino.

Barueri’s Pedrão now has six goals to his name after putting two more away against Guarani. The 30-year-old remains the league’s top scorer with six.

But the biggest losers of the day were São Paulo and Santos. Muricy Ramalho’s men slipped to sixth after a surprise 2-0 home defeat against Santo André. Osny and Junior Dutra were on target in the Morumbi. To make matters worse, São Paulo had centreback Miranda sent off.

Santos also suffered a surprise 2×0 loss at the hands of Ituano. Ricardo Xavier and Alex Afonso did the damage. Santos, can consider themselves a little unlucky after hitting the woodwork a whopping six times!

Two coaches went this weekend. Marília said goodbye to João Martins, and Ruy Scarpino got the chop at bottom club Noroeste.

    This is the Lenny linked with Arsenal? Is it true he is available on a free in August?

    Not sure. His full name is: Lenny Fernandes Coelho and he’s still owned by Portugal’s Sporting Braga. Lenny joined them around August 2007, so he may be available on a free after this – depends if he signed a two or three year contract
