It went well: Gabigol scores early on
Gabigol was instrumental in opening the score for Flamengo. With a nice finish from outside the area, he beat Marcelo Lomba.
It was bad: Saravia gives space
Flamengo created a lot on the left side. Saravia, Inter’s right-back, gave space, especially in the second half.
David Luiz avoids Inter goal
Inter had just cashed in and were pressing for a draw in the opening stage. That’s when an Edenilson hit was defended by Diego Alves and offered to Patrick, who kicked hard. I would have entered if it weren’t for David Luiz who took off just before the ball crossed the line.
Inter’s game: Between failures and chances
Internacional started out failing a lot in defence. He left Gabigol free at least twice, missed the mark and conceded two goals. It could have been more. Afterwards, however, the team from Rio Grande do Sul started to find its way on the field and explore the spaces left by the rival. He got his goal in a counterattack and had a clear opportunity even in the initial stage avoided by David Luiz. Colorado pressed on in the final stage, but failed to score.
Flamengo’s game: Two goals in 10 minutes
Flamengo started well, scored two goals early and could have done more. Gabigol, from outside the area, and Andreas Pereira, after a great move, gave the Rio team an advantage with 10 minutes into the match. Then there were more chances to get more goals. But as they attacked, Renato Gaúcho’s team left spaces and also suffered. He narrowly missed a draw in the opening stage. In the second half, even though Inter pressured, the defense was solid.
Gabigol opened the scoring for Flamengo with four minutes of play. Andreas Pereira completed a beautiful move and made the second at 10. But Taison added a discount for Inter at 40 minutes of the first stage.
Actions to combat racism
Before the game, Internacional organized an action to combat racism. The players entered the warm-up wearing a black shirt, and each one had a letter that, together, formed “Inter against racism”.
