RABBIT IN ATTACK
América-MG started taking the initiatives of the match and had greater offensive impetus in the first half. At four minutes, the Corinthians defense made a mistake, Juninho received a cross and, without marking, headed over Cássio.
Corinthians’ response came in kicks from outside the area by Adson and Mateus Vital. Both were defended by Cavichioli.
The first stage did not hold many emotions, as both Coelho and Timão found it very difficult to create real chances to score, and the match dropped in intensity. The home team arrived with danger in the final minutes of the first half, but the linesman caught offside in a submission by Henrique Almeida, defended by Cássio.
MORE OF THE SAME
Vítor Pereira made three changes and changed Timão’s tactical system for the second half, but the script remained the same. América-MG took advantage of Corinthians’ disorganization, but did not capitalize on goals. Henrique Almeida had a chance from outside the area, but Cássio saved it. The visiting team arrived with danger in plays from above.
AMERICA IN FRONT!
Controlling the offensive actions of the match, Coelho managed to open the scoring in the 31st minute of the second half. Cáceres lifted in the area and Mastriani headed for the second post. Alone, Juninho took advantage of the space and swung Cássio’s nets.
Corinthians rehearsed a blitz in the final minutes, but the home team held the advantage and left Arena Independência with three points.
