The weekend passed and, as usual, the R7 brought you the 7 sporting highlights of the past few days. To start with, a bombshell: Ceará fired coach Guto Ferreira this past Sunday (29). The coach was the leader in the longevity ranking of coaches for Brazilian clubs in Serie A. Now, with the resignation of Guto Ferreira, Maurício Barbieri, coach of Red Bull Bragantino, is in first place on the list, followed by Abel Ferreira, from Palmeiras
Striker Diego Costa, recently hired by Atlético Mineiro, was the protagonist in Galo’s draw against Red Bull Bragantino at Nabizão, scoring a great goal in his debut at the end of the lights and guaranteeing a small point for Atlético. The Brazilian naturalized Spanish needed only 25 minutes on the field to score his first goal with the Galão shirt… What quality Diego Costa has!
Lionel Messi’s long-awaited debut for PSG took place this weekend, last Sunday (29), but it was not the way everyone expected… Mauricio Pochetinno, Argentine Paris Saint-Germain coach, did not put Messi in the starting line-up and, to make matters worse, when he called the shirt 30 to play, he put him in the place of another ace… The world wanted Lionel Messi, Neymar and Mbappé together, but Pochetinno changed Neymar for Messi in the 20th minute of the second half, frustrating everyone the spectators of the match…
Gabriel Barbosa, Flamengo striker, is nicknamed ‘Gabigol’ not for nothing… The star revealed by Santos, returned to Vila Belmiro and scored 3 goals against his former club. Gabigol did not stop celebrating and was much criticized by the Santos board during the match. ‘Respect your home!’ shouted some members of the Santos board to Gabriel Barbosa
Brazilian Richarlison, striker for Everton, England club, was enraged when his penalty kick was stolen by another teammate, 9 Calvert-Lewin… Some club mates had to contain Richarlison, who appeared to be quite furious and frowning. However, as soon as Calvert-Lewin converted the penalty kick, Richarlison left to celebrate with the English jersey. It is noteworthy that the Brazilian was already on edge due to an argument with a player from the opposing team
Gabriel Jesus shines once again in a Premier League match, this time against a Big-Six team. Last Saturday (28), Jesus scored an assist and scored a goal against Arsenal, in a match that ended 5-0 for the Citizens. The Brazilian shirt 9 had been much criticized for his performances in the Brazilian national team, but, apparently, he is making a comeback
To close the highlights of this weekend, a bizarre goal in the match between Atlético de Madrid and Villareal declared a tie in the last minute of the game. The yellow submarine was winning the match against Atleti in Wanda Metropolitano by 2-1, when, 95 minutes into the game, Villareal defender Mandi retreated to the goalkeeper, who was badly positioned and could not avoid the own goal. Nigerian defender… An immeasurable bizarreness that brought the current Spanish champion to the current champion of the Europa League to a draw in the game
