From Pitaco do Gringo’s Brazilian football blog,  ‘São Paulo are the new leaders in the Brasileiro’,  from 8 November,  by Jon Cotteril {click here}.

Although Palmeiras regained the lead Wednesday night,  with a come-from-behind 2-2 draw with Sport Club do Recife,  São Paulo FC look well positioned to grab their fourth consecutive Brazilian title.  There are 4 four rounds to go,  and all of São Paulo’s matches are against clubs lower than 9th place.  Current form table leaders Flamengo (6-1-1 in last 8 matches) are in hot pursuit,  though.  The Rio de Janeiro giants have been propelled by former FC Internazionale striker Adriano,  who is joint leader of goals scored (tied at 18 goals with Martins Diego of Atlético Mineiro).  Flamengo are only 2 points off the pace.  Surprise-of-the-season Atlético Mineiro are three points off the pace,  and really packing in the crowds in Belo Horizonte’s Mineirão,  drawing a league-high 40,000 per game at the municipal stadium they share with local rivals Cruzeiro..  Factor in surging Cruzeiro,  who are 5 points back (6-1-1 in last 8 matches),  and SC Internacional,  who are 6 points back,  and you have a great race for the 4 remaining Copa Libertadores spots.  [Passage to the preeminent South American tournament goes to the Copa do Brasil winner (Corinthians,  this season),  and the top 4 places in the Campeonato Série A. ]
