Santos started the game pressured by the rout suffered in the first leg and saw the situation get even more complicated in the 21st minute, when defender Derick was sent off.
Even with one less, the Fish went up. The boldness was rewarded in the 43rd minute, when Enzo Monteiro opened the scoring with a beautiful header in the corner. And it didn’t take even a minute for the advantage to increase. In the next move, Miguelito was fouled in the area and received a penalty. Ivonei took responsibility and converted.
At 49, defender Carlos tried to cut a cross and ended up sending it against his own goal, scoring the third of Santos.
In the second half, Santos continued to tighten, but had more difficulties to break the mark. On the other side, Ibrachina had a golden chance to cash in and change the game’s history in the 35th minute. Goalkeeper Edu Araújo missed the ball and lost to Jhonnathan, who had an open goal to score. The striker, however, sent it out and missed an unbelievable chance.
And the wasted goal cost a lot. That’s because, in the 39th minute, Jair threw a great pass to Victor Michell, who dominated and touched the goalkeeper’s exit to mark the Meninos da Vila fourth.
In the end, Peixe only managed the score to confirm the comeback and guarantee a spot in the semifinals.
