With ease, Santos beat Ferrovia 2-0 at Arena da Fonte Luminosa tonight (9). Lucas Barbosa, in 28 of the first half, and Rowan, in three of the second half, scored the goals that made Pixie achieve 100% success in the first stage of Copenha and at the top of the eighth group.
Both groups have already entered the classified domain. The beach team advanced to first with nine points, and will face Chapadinha-MA, second in Group 7, in the second stage. Ferrovia, who finished second with six players, will face Nova Iguaçu, who won Group 7. The NFL will still announce the locations and dates of the matches.
Bixe dominated the Araraquara match in the first stage and left no space for the home team. The first great opportunity to open the scoring came in the 23rd minute, when Wesley Patate played over the goalkeeper and stamped the crossbar.
The goal came five minutes in a move from the right side. Lucas Barbosa started the play by stealing the ball on the attacking field and passing it to Rouen. Alfinegro’s highlight in the tournament happened on a return scale and Lucas Barbosa managed to enter the area and, from the board, sent with his left foot to score another goal for Santos in Copeña.
The superiority in the mark slowed down the fencing pace in the last minutes before the end of the first half, and the match did not witness more large extensions until the final whistle in the first half.
Every breath in the second stage
Three minutes later, striker Rowan missed no opportunity inside the area and scored a superb goal to extend Alfinegro’s supremacy. The athlete scored in all the team’s matches in Copenhagen so far, achieving his third goal this year.
Locomotiva wasn’t able to upset Peixe at almost any point in time, save for a header on the last throw. With so many difficulties expressing their plays, the host club made goalkeeper Diogenes practically a spectator of the confrontation.
The Denner Award, awarded for the best goal by popular vote in each round of the tournament, went to Santos in the first round. And Rowan, drawing in front of the worker, was the most voted with 48.84% of the vote.
In the second round, Batati contends with another superb goal he scored against Rondonense, and now Lucas Barbosa’s goal brings good chances to enter the award as well. “I think my goal can compete. I’m working for it,” the striker told SporTV, in the first half of the match.
The successful duo
As in the first round, in the 2-1 win over Operaário-PR, Lucas Barbosa and Roan, in that order, scored Alfinegro’s goals tonight (9).
Despite already ranked and relying solely on a draw to ensure he leads the group, coach Elder Campos sent his best at Santos. Patate, who featured in the 3-0 win over Rwandan, started and played well. Ed Carlos also replaced Fernandinho, but the captain backed off the change in the first half.
The Peixe players who entered the field in this confrontation are: Diógenes; Sandro Perbeto (Cayo Henrique), Derek, Gayer and Lucas Perez (Pedrinho); Jonathan (Rafael Moreira), Joao Victor (Pedro Michel), and Ed Carlos (Fernandinho); Wesley Patati (Andre Quintino), Lucas Barbosa and Roan Sekou.
