Quartet dominates the dark black rhythm
Flamengo dominated the match from the start, with the attacking quartet of Everton Ribeiro, Arascaeta, Bruno Henrique and Gabigol threatening. With the good changes in position, Paulo Sousa’s team had no trouble engaging Talleres’ defense. So, in the tenth minute, in an attempt in which BH and Gabi took part, the Uruguayan invaded the area, “hide the ball” and fell to the ground. From the penalty spot, the jersey opened 9 scoring.
If Flamengo weren’t overwhelming, it was the team that offered a safety they haven’t had this season until then. Therefore, with possession of the ball, soon more opportunities arose. Advance on the right, Matteosinho cross of Bruno Henrique, whose header, minutes later, started the number 27 shirt on the left and played in the middle, looking for Arascaeta who did not arrive. At the entrance to the area, Everton Ribeiro made the first shot, low and without a chance for goalkeeper Herrera: 2-0 in the 26th minute.
Talleris has one chance
In Flamengo’s first match, with the Libertadores, in the Maracana, attention was also focused on Santos, who made his debut at the start of the match. The fact is that the goalkeeper would go for the break without soiling the uniform, but the passivity of the defense of David Luiz, Willian Arau and Rodini offered Talleres easy access and exchange of passes into the area. So, when Girotti touched his heel and Vertoli filled his foot, the number 20 could do nothing.
Another goal and a RED-BLACK party!
Returning to the match after Vertoli’s superb goal, Talleres returned wanting to upset Flamengo in the final stage. Santos, with Girotti’s surrender, saved well after two minutes. Coach Pedro Caichinha made three substitutions, but then saw another good move with the Red and Black attack. Bruno Henrique provided the assist for Everton Ribeiro, who conquered the area and eliminated goalkeeper Herrera. A goal that gave peace to Paulo Sousa’s team.
The second goal of the 7 shirt – which found plenty of freedom in the middle of the field – stopped Talleres’ momentum, who, due to missed opportunities, fell from Flamengo, from being defeated in the final minutes. Pedro got two chances as soon as he got in. In the first, Herrera defended, and the second shot came close to the post and did not prevent the fans from celebrating until after the final whistle.
