The first real chance of the game was in the 20th minute, with Nene. Shirt number 10 received a pass from Figueiredo, on the right, and kicked with the first shot. Goalkeeper Tony made the save. The first half was warm. Vila circled the Vasco area on a few occasions, but only made Thiago Rodrigues work in the 41st minute, when, after a kick from the right of the attack, Rafael Donato headed hard. Batman Defense.

And the move that scared the Vasco fan at the end of the first half turned into a nightmare at the beginning of the second. At seven minutes, Alex Silva crossed and Rafael Donato, in the small area, tested to open the scoring. Neto Pessoa still had a chance, but finished poorly three minutes later. Vila Nova’s rebar put eight players inside the defense area even before the goal. And the life of the visiting team would only be more difficult.

Time passed, passed and Vasco could not build. He changed wingers, changed midfielder, changed wing, but it was difficult to change passes in the attacking field. Tony, in practice, didn’t make big interventions in the second half. The performance was bad to the point that Vila won again after 14 games. And Vasco certainly didn’t deserve better luck.
