The season of ups and downs
So far, Fluminense’s season has been marked by moments of great joy and others of utter disappointment. That’s because the team led by Abel won the Campeonato Carioca Championship over Flamengo, but missed out on its place in the group stage. Editors.
Tonight, both teams had reason to believe in victory before rolling the ball at Arena Pantanal. This is because Cuiaba has come from eight wins in eight matches for the home team, while Flo has won seven of the previous 10 when they played as a visitor of the season.
Best in the field: Goose
The flu midfielder was one of the few to try something different, even if it was ineffective. Realizing Cuiaba’s toughness in watching, the No. 10 jersey got close to the midfielders and risked longer passes.
Worst on the field: Andre
The Cuiaba striker played a poor and fruitless game. He was substituted directly in the first half, making way for Elton, as he was harmless throughout the first half and was booked in the 38th minute for defender Nino’s injury to his arm.
Even while playing at home, Cuiaba chose to play more defensively, seeking to find spaces in the flu defense through quick counter-attacks. In the first stage, goalkeeper Fabio did not bother much.
The team, led by Abel, did not hide from the match in search of possession of the ball and the lines advanced on the offensive field. However, in the offensive sector there was a lack of creativity and speed, which made it easy to keep an eye on the opponent.
The first half was characterized by a lot of running and pointing, but the chances of a goal are few. Carioca held the ball more, trying to find spaces in the opponent’s defense, but missed when it reached the Cuiabá area.
The match was so truncated that Flo’s first kick was only 22 minutes away with striker Luis Henrique. The boy managed to get away from the mark, but hit weakly and without guidance, which prompted a complaint from his teammate Fred.
The second half kept the same pace, with both teams making a lot of mistakes in attack and scoring strong goals when they did not have the ball.
Only the match did not end 0-0 because defender Paulau scored against it in injury time, following an urgent move by striker Kano.
