Palmeiras remain top of the Campeonato Paulista after an electrifying 4-3 win at São Caetano.

Keirrison added two more to his total and is now the league’s top scorer with nine. The forward is in cracking form having already struck 12 times in just nine games for Palmeiras in the Paulista and Libertadores.

On Wednesday evening in the Anacleto Campanella, coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo watched in disbelief as his side succumbed to goals from Luan and Marcelo Batatais in the first 10 minutes of the match. But by the end of the first-half, Palmeiras were 4-2 up thanks to Keirrison, Edmilson and Diego Souza. Palmeiras lead the Paulista with 25 points – one more and with a game in hand above second-placed Corinthians. Palmeiras are at home to Guarani on Saturday in a game you can see with us. See the highlights vs São Caetano.

Goals from Corinthians Douglas and Otacílio Neto were enough to see off Noroeste.  The bottom club have just three points to their name and have yet to win.

Portuguesa’s Athirson and Edno have hit form. They struck against Mogi Mirim to lift the Canindé side to 4th. See the goals

In a deserted Morumbi, São Paulo kept their place in the top four after an easy 3-0 win over Oeste. Washington, André Dias and Hernanes scored in front of just 4,700 fans in their home stadium. See the goals

Santos could only manage a 2-2 draw away to Bragantino. Vagner Mancini’s team trailed by two after Malaquias and Marcelo Godri had given the strugglers a commanding lead. But second-half strikes from Rodrigo Souto and Molina rescued a point for Santos. See the goals   

Santos feature in our Sunday match when they take on rivals São Paulo in the Vila Belmiro.
