Attack against defense!
The first half was all for the colorada team, who commanded the match, making a real attack against the defense. Under Alan Patrick’s mastery, the home team created some good scoring opportunities.

Cuiabá’s first opportunity in the match came in the 20th minute, with a shot by Valdívia at the entrance of the area. Then Pedro Henrique left at speed, crossed in the area and Alemão punctured. The ball returned to PH after getting lost and he sent a shower again. This time, Alemão tested for the back of the net and opened the scoring.
