Since then, there have been 102 days and 13 games, with nine defeats and four draws. In Serie D, the team from Paraná drew the first three games.
Paraná’s goals over Portuguesa-RJ were scored by Carlos Henrique and Marcelinho, both in the first half. Tricolor is now in the runner-up of group 7 of Series D, with six points.
– We are happy for the first victory, we deserved it from the first game, we were playing good games. Today the three points came out. Happy to help the team, God willing, we will continue, scoring goals – said Carlos Henrique, as he left the field.
