Kléber Pereira comes to the rescue

Kléber Pereira comes to the rescue

For so long on Sunday it looked as if Portuguesa had done enough against Santo André to earn a place in the knock out phase of the Campeonato Paulista. Santos were struggling away to Ponte Preta until Kléber Pereira (who else) popped up with three goals to send his side into the next phase.

Santos’ 3-2 win in Campinas left Portuguesa holding their heads after they beat Santo André 2-1 and were denied a place in the semis by just one goal.

The playoffs line up like this: Santos x Palmeiras, Corinthians x São Paulo. First legs to be played next weekend.

The four sides to go down were Guaratinguetá, Marília, Guarani and Noroeste.

Amazingly, Mogi Mirim, who had been in the relegation zone for most of the competition, survived on number of wins.
