After smothering CSA at the beginning of the match, Sampaio Corrêa slowed down and insisted on lifting to the penalty area, duly removed by the Azul defense. With the defense well, CSA tried to respond in the attack field, but lacked creativity: Osvaldo, at 25, found a space in the defense of Bolivia Querida and risked a cross kick by the Alagoas team, without success.
