Meanwhile, Goiás started with: Tadeu, Maguinho (Bruno Santos), Lucas Halter, Bruno Melo, Sander, Zé Ricardo, Willian Oliveira, Diego, Julián Palacios (Dodô), Alesson (Gabriel Novaes), Matheus Peixoto (Philippe Costa).

In a hard-fought match, Goiás started stronger, created opportunities, and had a disallowed goal, with Matheus Peixoto taking advantage of Sander’s cross from an offside position. However, the home team opened the scoring in the 24th minute. Biel took a shot from outside the box, the ball deflected off the defense, and Everaldo skillfully finished to beat Tadeu.

After conceding the goal, Goiás didn’t back down, pushed forward, and managed to equalize just 5 minutes later. Bruno Melo took a free kick and benefited from the opponent’s defensive wall opening up, leaving goalkeeper Marcos Felipe furious.

Both teams had good opportunities in the first half. After a free kick, David Duarte rose high and headed the ball against the crossbar, and on the rebound, Ademir took a shot, but Tadeu made the save. Goiás responded with dangerous shots from Matheus Peixoto and Palacios.

In the second half, both teams attacked sparingly, and the main chance came for Goiás, with Gabriel Novaes finding himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper but missing the target.

With the draw, both teams reach 7 points, with Bahia in 13th place and Goiás in 15th place.

Bragantino 2×0 Athletico-PR

With a goal in each half, Bragantino defeats Athletico-PR at Nabi Abi Chedid and ends a 6-game winless streak.

Bragantino started the match with: Cleiton; Andrés Hurtado, Eduardo Santos, Léo Realpe, and Guilherme Lopes (Aderlan); Lucas Evangelista, Matheus Fernandes (Jadsom Silva), and Bruninho (Eric Ramires); Helinho (Henry Mosquera), Eduardo Sasha (Thiago Borbas), and Vitinho.

Bragantino opened the scoring in the 15th minute with Eduardo Sasha, who deflected a shot from Lucas Evangelista after a good exchange of passes by the home team.

After conceding the goal, Athletico-PR tried to react and equalize the match. Vitor Bueno and Cuello attempted long-range shots that caused some concern, but the best opportunity came to Alex Santana in the 46th minute of the first half. The midfielder found himself face-to-face with the goal after a scramble in the box but struck the ball too high and sent it over the crossbar.

In the second half, Bragantino came back stronger and had a chance to extend their lead. However, with the introduction of their starters, Furacão (Athletico-PR) improved and created good opportunities, especially through Uruguayan player Canobbio, who posed the greatest danger to the opponent.

In the 40th minute, Henry Mosquera made a wonderful play, easily bypassing Khellven, entered the box, and passed to Borbas, who tapped the ball into the back of the net, sealing the final score of the match.

With the result, Bragantino climbs to 12th place, while Athletico-PR drops to 7th position.

São Paulo lined up with: Rafael; Rafinha, Diego Costa, Beraldo, and Caio Paulista; Luan (Wellington Rato), Gabriel Neves (Alisson), and Nestor (Michel Araújo); Marcos Paulo (Pablo Maia), Luciano, and Calleri (Juan).

On the other hand, Vasco started with: Léo Jardim; Pumita Rodríguez, Robson, Léo, and Lucas Piton; Jair, Galarza (Rodrigo), and Barros (Alex Teixeira); Gabriel Pec (Carabajal), Figueiredo (Orellano), and Pedro Raul (Erick Marcus).

As usual, Vasco had a strong start to the match. Just 2 minutes in, Galarza took advantage of a rebound from a cross and struck a powerful shot from outside the box, demanding a great save from Rafael.

Vasco continued to press, but it was the home team that opened the scoring in the 23rd minute. Calleri anticipated the play and slid in to finish off Marcos Paulo’s cross.

Tricolor took advantage of the spaces given by Vasco and extended their lead on a counterattack with a beautiful goal from Nestor. After a throw-in attack, Jair kicked the ball against Piton, triggering the counterattack. Luciano passed to Nestor on the right wing, who easily dribbled past Robson and fired a shot into the net from inside the box.

Before the end of the first half, Vasco pulled one back with Barros, who capitalized on Piton’s cross, won the battle against Caio Paulista, and headed the ball into the right corner of the goal, beating Rafael.

In the second half, Vasco created good opportunities and managed to equalize in the 38th minute. Galarza received a cross at waist height, controlled the ball, and unleashed a powerful shot to level the score.

Just when the game seemed to be heading for a draw, Beraldo put São Paulo back in the lead in the 44th minute. After a cross from Wellington Rato, the young defender didn’t even jump and headed the ball into the net.

Tricolor sealed the game on the counterattack. In the 46th minute, after a fantastic run by Pablo Maia, Wellington Rato found Juan all alone to add the final goal to the match.

With the victory, São Paulo climbs to 8th position, while Vasco enters the relegation zone, in 17th place.

Coritiba 1×2 Atlético-MG

Hulk scores a penalty in the end, and Coritiba lets the result slip away in stoppage time once again.

Coritiba started with: Luan Polli; Bruno Viana, Henrique, and Chancellor (Boschilia); Natanael (Marcos Vinicius), Bruno Gomes, Liziero (Júnior Urso), Marcelino Moreno (William Pottker), and Jamerson; Robson (Kaio César), and Zé Roberto.

On the other hand, Atlético-MG began with: Éverson; Saravia, Bruno Fuchs, Lemos, and Dodô (Rubens); Edenilson (Cadu), Igor Gomes (Battaglia), Hyoran (Pavón), and Patrick (Zaracho); Eduardo Vargas and Hulk.

Coritiba started the match well and managed to open the scoring in the 12th minute. After a cross from Liziero, the ball struck Hyoran’s arm, and Robson converted the penalty by shooting straight down the middle of the goal.

After conceding the goal, Galo (Atlético-MG) took control of the game and equalized in the 36th minute. Hyoran redeemed himself from the penalty he committed by taking a free-kick into the middle of the box. The ball deflected off Chancellor and found the back of the net.

In the second half, Coritiba lost Zé Roberto to a second yellow card before the 10-minute mark. With a player advantage, Galo put a lot of pressure and completed the comeback in stoppage time. Marcos Vinicius fouled Vargas inside the penalty area, and the referee awarded a penalty. Hulk stepped up and calmly sent the goalkeeper the wrong way, securing the victory for Galo.

América-MG 2×1 Fortaleza

The former bottom-placed team in the league, América-MG, faced Fortaleza.

Coelho was fighting for their first triumph in the competition, which came with a convincing performance. They lined up with: Matheus Pasinato; Marcinho, Iago Maidana, Wanderson, and Danilo Avelar; Lucas Kal, Breno, and Emmanuel Martínez; Felipe Azevedo, Everaldo, and Renato Marques.

Meanwhile, Fortaleza, under Vojvoda’s leadership, fielded: João Ricardo; Tinga, Emanuel Brítez, Ceballos, and Lucas Crispim; Caio Alexandre, Lucas Sasha, Pochettino, and Calebe; Moisés and Lucero.

There was immense pressure on América-MG to secure their first victory. The team had started the year well by reaching the final of the Campeonato Mineiro and delivering strong performances in the Sulamericana. However, since the beginning of the Brasileirão, they had been languishing in last place without a win.

On the other hand, Fortaleza has been enjoying a great moment for some time, especially considering the significant progress the team has made in recent seasons.

However, as the game kicked off, it was Coelho who took control of the match. Just 2 minutes into the game, Breno scored a goal. The goals, by the way, were limited to the first half. Pochettino equalized for Leão at 26 minutes, and Felipe Azevedo scored at 33 minutes to secure the home team’s victory.

The win was crucial for América’s work going forward as they face Defensa y Justicia at home in the Sulamericana.

Also in the Sulamericana, Leão do Pici will face San Lorenzo at home.

América goes to 19th position, while Fortaleza is in 11th place.

Botafogo 1×0 Fluminense

A highly anticipated Rio de Janeiro derby awaited by all. Both teams riding high.

Fluminense, considered by many to play the most beautiful football in the country. The club stacks up goals, victories, and outstanding performances with Fernando Diniz’s unique style.

On the other hand, Botafogo has been a pleasant surprise in the early stages of the Brasileirão. After a tough start to the year with an early elimination in the Campeonato Carioca, it didn’t seem possible for Glorioso to have such a satisfactory performance, let alone leading the beginning of the Brasileirão, playing consistent football.

Fluminense had the following lineup on the field: Fábio, Samuel Xavier, Nino, Felipe Melo, and Guga; André, Lima, Ganso, and Arias; Pirani and Cano.

Botafogo came with: Perri, Rafael, Adryelson, Cuesta, and Marçal; Tchê Tchê, Gabriel Pires, Eduardo, Junior Santos; Tiquinho Soares, and Victor Sá.

Fluminense, accustomed to taking the initiative in the game and attacking opponents, found great difficulty in imposing their style.

Botafogo, with a well-structured team and tight marking, managed to prevent Fluminense’s traditional passing game.

As a result, the game was mostly tight, but it was Botafogo who managed to get closer to the goal, even though the chances were not very clear, except for Fábio’s monumental save from Junior Santos’ shot.

In the 79th minute, a cross was made and the ball was touched by Tiquinho Soares into the six-yard box. There was Victor Cuesta, who, despite being on the ground, managed to anticipate Fábio and score the only goal of the match.

The goal caused controversy and a lot of complaints from the Tricolores, as Cuesta collided with a Fluminense player during the corner kick.

Ultimately, the goal was validated, and Botafogo extended their lead over Palmeiras, who drew with Santos. Glorioso will face Cesar Vallejo in the Sulamericana this Thursday.

Fluminense remains in the third position in the Brasileirão but seeks to bounce back, also on Thursday, against The Strongest in Bolivia, for the Libertadores.

Santos 0x0 Palmeiras

Another classic match in this thrilling round of the Brasileirão.

Santos faced Palmeiras at Vila Belmiro.

Santos lined up with: João Paulo; Gabriel Inocêncio, Messias, Joaquim, and Lucas Pires; Rodrigo Fernández, Dodi, and Lucas Lima; Ângelo, Deivid Washington, and Lucas Braga.

The second-placed Verdão took the field with: Weverton; Mayke, Gómez, Luan, and Piquerez; Zé Rafael, Gabriel Menino (Richard Ríos), and Raphael Veiga; Artur, Dudu (Bruno Tabata), and Rony.

The Santos versus Palmeiras classic, a highly traditional match, has had a special touch since 2015. The clubs have faced each other in several finals, including the final of the 2020 Libertadores, in which Verdão emerged as champions.

Palmeiras did not have their coach, Abel Ferreira, present as he was suspended.

This could have been a good opportunity for Santos to break an important taboo. Since the Portuguese coach’s arrival in Brazil, Peixe has not managed to defeat Palmeiras.

Regarding the game, it should be highlighted that despite the technical disparity between the teams, with Palmeiras having players of higher quality, Santos put up a good performance and maintained control of the game for most of the time.

Santos’ high pressing worked in most instances and prevented Palmeiras from posing a significant threat to their goal.

However, neither team managed to beat the goalkeepers João Paulo and Weverton. The result was not entirely bad for both teams. Palmeiras secured an away point against a rival that has been growing in the competition, while Santos continues to show constant improvement.

Santos travels to Chile to face Audax Italiano this Wednesday in the Sulamericana, while Palmeiras heads to Paraguay to face Cerro Porteño.

Santos drops to 9th position, while Palmeiras remains in second place.

Flamengo 1×0 Corinthians

In the interstate classic between Flamengo and Corinthians, Brazil’s largest fanbase came out on top against the second largest.

Flamengo, managed by Jorge Sampaoli, lined up with: Santos, Wesley, Fabrício Bruno, Léo Pereira, and Ayrton Lucas; Erick Pulgar, Thiago Maia, Victor Hugo, and Gerson; Gabriel and Pedro.

Corinthians, led by Luxemburgo, had: Cássio, Bruno Mendez, Gil, Murillo, and Matheus Bidu; Paulinho, Maycon, and Fausto Vera; Adson, Róger Guedes, and Yuri Alberto.

Despite not being in a very positive phase and experiencing fluctuations, Flamengo was the clear favorite for the match, especially after their impressive first half against Fluminense in the Copa do Brasil.

However, Corinthians exceeded expectations and had the upper hand for a significant part of the game. In the second half, Timão had several opportunities to open the scoring but couldn’t convert.

When times are tough (Luxemburgo hasn’t won since taking charge of Corinthians), certain events that seem highly improbable end up happening.

The game was heading towards the end. The Flamengo fans were growing impatient and some sections of the crowd were booing the team. To make matters worse, Léo Pereira suffered an injury and requested a substitution, but Sampaoli had already made the 5 allowed changes.

In an act of bravery, Léo Pereira launched himself into the attack. In a crossed ball, he headed it towards the ground and scored the winning goal, sending the Maracanã into a frenzy.

Although Corinthians put up a good fight, they suffered another loss and should start worrying about their current position, currently 18th.

Timão has no time to dwell on the setback. They have a tough series of matches ahead, starting with a crucial encounter against Argentinos Juniors in Argentina for the Libertadores.

On the other hand, Flamengo faces Ñublense in Chile, which is also an important game for the team in the Libertadores and occupies the 6th position.

Grêmio 3×1 Internacional

Finally, Luiz Suarez’s star shines in the biggest Brazilian derby.

Grêmio started the game with: Gabriel Grando; Bruno Uvini, Kannemann, and Bruno Alves; Fábio, Villasanti, Bitello, Carballo, Cristaldo, and Reinaldo; Suárez.

Internacional began with: Keiller; Rômulo, Mercado, Moledo, and Thauan Lara; Campanharo, Johnny, Maurício, and Alan Patrick; Pedro Henrique and Luiz Adriano.

Grêmio opened the scoring with Suarez in an absolutely brilliant move. El Pistolero had already scored a fantastic goal against Cruzeiro in the previous game of the Copa do Brasil. He seemed to enjoy scoring from outside the box, and after the ball was lost by Internacional in midfield, the Uruguayan received it, dribbled past the defense, and unleashed a powerful shot into the top corner.

In the second half, Grêmio extended their lead with Villasanti.

It seemed like a calm and controlled game, but early in the second half, Kannemann was sent off. Manager Mano Menezes substituted defender Moledo with Wanderson. Despite having a numerical advantage, Internacional pushed forward and left themselves exposed. Suarez combined with Reinaldo, who set up Bitello to score Grêmio’s third goal.

Internacional managed to score a consolation goal through Johnny, but it was too late.

Grêmio has been improving in the competition and will have a week of rest as they are not participating in international competitions.

On the other hand, Internacional will face Metropolitanos away in the Libertadores. The Colorado suffered their fifth consecutive defeat, and manager Mano Menezes is under pressure.

Grêmio rises to 10th place, while Inter occupies 15th position.

Cruzeiro 0x1 Cuiabá

At the respawn of António Oliveira, Cuiabá surprised and defeated Cruzeiro in Sete Lagoas with a goal from Deyverson.

Cruzeiro took the field with: Rafael; William (Igor Formiga), Lucas Oliveira, Luciano Castán, and Marlon; Filipe Machado (Daniel Júnior), Neto Moura (Gilberto), and Ramiro (Wallisson); Wesley (Nikão), Henrique Dourado, and Bruno Rodrigues.

On the other hand, Cuiabá started with: Walter; Matheus Alexandre, Empereur, Marllon, and Rikelme (PK); Fernando Sobral, Raniele, and Denilson (Ronald Barbosa); Jonathan Cafu, Wellington Silva (Iury Castilho), and Deyverson (Isidro Pitta).

Before the kick-off, Deyverson protested against racism and showed his solidarity with Vini Jr. He raised his fists before the ball started rolling and wished strength to his compatriot from Real Madrid, who was once again a victim of a racist attack in Spain.

Cuiabá was the first to pose a threat, as at the 14th minute of the game, Denilson passed the ball to Deyverson on the right side. The forward cut past Filipe Machado inside the box and took a shot, but the ball deflected off Oliveira and went out for a corner.

At the 27th minute, Wesley received the ball at the edge of the box, shifted it to his right foot, and unleashed a powerful shot, but the ball narrowly missed the post.

Jonathan Cafu found himself face to face with Rafael and almost scored a fantastic goal at the 35th minute. He attempted a chip shot, but the ball went just wide. The pressure from Cuiabá paid off, as in the following minute, Deyverson capitalized on Sobral’s cross and opened the scoring.

In the second half, trailing behind, Raposa (Cruzeiro) intensified the pressure but couldn’t break through the defense. Dourado (Cuiabá) closed ranks even further, stopped shooting at the opponent’s goal, and succeeded in neutralizing the Cruzeiro attack, which lacked creativity.

With the victory, Cuiabá moves out of the relegation zone and occupies the 14th position, while Cruzeiro sits in 5th place.
