Most contested player of the current squad Flamengo, Bruno Viana took the first step towards redemption after accumulating impressive numbers against Grêmio, on the last night, in a duel valid for going to the quarterfinals of the Copa do Brasil. In addition to the goal that opened the scoring at the Arena do Grêmio, the defender was named “Crack of the Game” by the organization of the tournament.
Bruno Viana started again as a starter due to the casualties of Léo Pereira and Rodrigo Caio (who has been distant for a longer time). Loaned by Braga-POR until December, the defender did the job and praised the triumph:
– It was a difficult game. We got the victory that was the most important, regardless of having been 4-0, it could have been 1-0.
Undeniably, despite Renato Gaucho’s caution, Flamengo sent a place to the semifinals of the Copa do Brasil. The Wednesday return game will be held on September 15, at Maracanã.
