Palmeiras forward Deyverson took a tumble in a botched attempt to leap on top of a goal celebration huddle during Wednesday’s 4-0 victory over América Mineiro.
Luan Garcia opened the scoring in the 59th minute and was promptly mobbed by teammates, with Deyverson looking to join in with the jubilant scenes.
He runs up and tries to jump onto the back of Thiago dos Santos, but the midfielder is dragged downwards at the crucial moment.
This sends Deyverson flying over the top of the huddle and crashing to the turf in what looks at first like a badly misjudged leap.
At least he went on to score his side’s final goal, adding to strikes from Willian and Dudu to seal a comprehensive win at the Allianz Parque in São Paulo.
The result leaves Palmeiras five points clear at the top of the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A with just two games remaining.
