On Saturday, left-back Tiaguinho, from Altos, freed the Piauí team from any chance of relegation in Serie C. A kick from outside the area noted by the player gave Jacaré a 1-0 victory over Santa Cruz, at Arruda, in Recife. The accurate submission zeroed the chances of the Piauí team’s fall and further sunk the Pernambuco team, which is in trouble at the Z-2 of the 3rd division of the Brazilian Championship. The painting was annotated thanks to a slight deviation in the coral defense. Look above.

Altos and Santa Cruz entered the field fighting to escape relegation. Jacaré depended only on himself to be mathematically unreachable by the group at the bottom of the Group A table. Jacaré reached 21 points and touched the G-4, the classification zone for the next phase.
The defeat at home left Santa Cruz one step away from relegation to Serie D – only a combination of results can save them. The team from Pernambuco may have confirmed the fall this Sunday morning if Floresta beat Tombense, in Tombos, Minas Gerais.
