Palmeiras fans - "Born to win"

Palmeiras, who took the field in the traditional Brazil strip of yellow shirts, blue shorts and white socks for the first time, could not find a way to score against a side second bottom of the second division.

The point takes the Sao Paulo side nine points clear at the top of the table and they can now concentrate on winning the title in the remaining six games of the season.

Palmeiras, who were relegated last year, have won eight national titles in total, including the four since the Brazilian first division began in 1971.
