Who Worked Well: Vetino and Gabigol
Striker Vetinho had a great season, and he was essential for Flamengo not to leave Castellao with defeat. And by scoring the goal 6 minutes after the start of the second half, the striker reached 11 goals in 39 matches he played in 2021.
Despite losing good chances of swinging the net, especially in the first half, Gabriel used all his abilities to provide the crucial passes. With a good view of the game, the number 9 shirt left the area well, but he also saw his teammates squander the obvious opportunities he helped create.
Who was wrong: Everton Ribeiro
The Flamengo midfielder moved in and helped mark, but despite his quality, he did little with the ball in Sunday’s duel. Without the usual big games, Everton Ribeiro ended up being substituted in the second stage.
The tone of Castellao’s first half was very clear: while visiting Flamengo, he took the match action to score, Ciara, the home team, used a counterattack technique. Point for Goto Ferreira.
Get key opportunities at your feet Gabigol And with the most ball possession (66%), Rio had no efficiency in swinging Richard’s net and saw Fuzao go into the locker room with an advantage, after only one submission.
Technically poor, the first 45 minutes were taken in Fortaleza and very few good plays were created.
In the 31st minute, the midfielder Vina received a good pass on the edge of the area, and quickly, he shot hard and opened the scoring for Ciara, with no chances for goalkeeper Diego Alves.
First big chance
Flamengo’s great chance to swing past Ciara came after just 37 minutes at Gabriel’s feet. He received a pass from Everton Ribeiro, had time to control the ball, at the entrance to the small area, but ended up isolating the ball to the finish line.
At 39, again with Gabigol, the Rio team came to the attack. However, without a corner, the Flamengo striker forced goalkeeper Richard to save well.
Electric Vetino: Joule!
Just 6 minutes into the second half, when Ciara was more powerful on the field, Flamengo got the equaliser. After receiving a fine pass from Filipe Luis, the inspiring Vetinho left everything intact at Castellao. With a powerful shot and without an opportunity for Richard, the striker reached the 11th goal in 39 matches this season.
At 11, Vitinho almost scored the turning point. In a powerful kick from the edge of the area, Flamengo was distinguished by passing the ball with a danger very close to Richard’s right post.
Leo Pereira saves the flamingo
In the 23rd minute, Rick had the opportunity to put Fuso back in front. After a superb dribbling of Bruno Viana, in the penalty area, the Ciara striker tried to kick the ball from the right corner, but he saw defender Leo Pereira, with his header, block the net from shaking.
Flemish with bigger size
The next minute Flamengo went to Ceará in search of a tie player. Michael, who missed the match, had a great opportunity at the age of 28, but ended up wasting Gabigol’s excellent help.
With the score 1-1, the tone of the second stage became identical to the first 45 minutes of the match. While Flamengo tried to win at all costs, and bypassed Ceará, Guto Ferreira’s team, especially with the changes, sought to force counterattacks quickly.
Despite the good play and intense match, the result did not change until the final whistle for Leandro Voadin.
