Torrent finally convinced and thrashed 2-5 to Bay.
In an intense match, Inter, led by Argentine Eduardo Coudet, did not find its way to Palmeiras’ goal until the last minute when a penalty sanctioned with the help of VAR allowed Thiago Galhardo to put the leader ahead.
The match seemed already defined, but in added time Luiz Adriano scored in a quick counterattack that finally worked for Palmeiras and returned to equalize a match that only had goals in its last three minutes.

Palmeiras, who also aspire to a lot this season, remained parked in the seventh box, with 10 points that so far are little.
Flamengo, champions of the league and Libertadores last year under the baton of Portuguese Jorge Jesus, had on this day his first convincing performance since being led by the Catalan Domènec Torrent and thrashed 2-5 in his visit to Bahia.
With two goals from Uruguayan Giorgian De Arrascaeta, another two from Pedro and one from Everton Ribeiro, Flamengo redeemed themselves from a poor start to the championship that, in just six days, put many to doubt about the work of Torrent, Pep’s pupil Guardiola and a fan of a touch game that seems to be beginning to bear fruit.
With the victory, “Fla” temporarily climbed to fifth place, with 11 points, and left a promise of improvement floating that has yet to be confirmed against stronger opponents than Bahia.
Flumnense does not react and remains in the low zone
Above Flamengo, in the fourth box, Fluminense now stands with just one more point, which drew 1-1 at home against Atlético Goianiense, which with that result remains in the last positions.
Eleven points also adds Vasco da Gama, who drew 2-2 against Santos, who is in the middle of the table with 8 points. In sixth place, with 10 points, Ceará settled down, defeating Fortaleza 1-0 and ratified its good start to this season, which began three months late due to the coronavirus pandemic, which forces all matches are played without an audience.
Corinthians also regained some ground, starting as one of the title candidates but have so far failed to show that on the pitch. Without shining, the ‘Timao’ won 1-2 in his visit to Goias and reached ninth place, with 9 points.
The day will be completed this Thursday when the Gremio will receive Sport and Atlético Mineiro will do the same with Sao Paulo, for the moment in second position.
