OPINION São Paulo 1×0 America
Again 1×0 in opposition to the Miners of America, one other dangerous sport however the benefit was established. São Paulo did their responsibility and received the primary leg of the quarter-finals of the Copa do Brasil. Luciano scored the one aim.
The Miners as soon as once more proved to be a difficult opponent for the Tricolor. Vágner Mancini has a attribute of deploying his groups to nullify the opposition’s strongest factors and that’s precisely what occurred. The Americans resisted São Paulo’s momentum and didn’t depart a relaxed midfield consisting of Gabriel, Nestor and Igor Gomes.
Even within the face of difficulties, the group didn’t change its attribute of proposing and constructing a sport with possession of the ball, surrounding the opponent till the emergency break. And the Tricolor’s aim got here in a uncommon, well-designed likelihood on the prime of the opponent’s hole, with Igor Vinícius given house on the proper and a millimeter cross on Luciano’s head. The striker was precisely the place the aim might have gone: on the second stick and prevented any protection.
After the prevalence on the scoreboard, São Paulo restricted themselves to defending the consequence within the face of the opponent’s rush in their very own field and surviving random counterattacks within the good a part of the second half. You can clearly see the fatigue of many gamers as a result of sequence of performs and particularly the dearth of other pace on the bench to kill the sport.
Argentinian Galoppo made his debut within the second stage and left a very good impression, combining will, good bodily situation and a few vertical transitions. The different candidates (Talles, Pablo Maia and particularly Nikão) didn’t change the ugly state of affairs of the second stage. With a bit extra high quality, América might have discovered the equalizer and nearly got here with a Thiago Cout penalty saved.
Opera abstract: São Paulo performed poorly however received and is alive within the competitors. An benefit is a bonus in BH, the mining technique must change. However, to achieve success within the Copa do Brasil, we might want to play greater than what we now have performed to this point. Fortunately, the second leg is simply on August 18.
