Tribute to man killed in accident with defender Renan
The traditional minute of silence, in addition to the victims of covid-19, paid tribute to Eliezer Pena, who died after being run over by defender Renan, who played for Red Bull Bragantino on loan from Palmeiras. A group of his family members was at Nabi Abi Chedid at the invitation of Massa Bruta and received tribute from the crowd, who took a banner with the phrase “Eliezer eternal” in the stands.
Who did well: Helinho
In his 100th game with the Red Bull Bragantino shirt, he returned to start and took advantage of the chance given by coach Maurício Barbieri, scoring the winning goal for Massa Bruta.
Who was bad: Marlon
The midfielder messed up when he cut the ball thrown in the area and left it free for Helinho to score the only goal of the match.
The first half at Nabi Abi Chedid was dominated by Red Bull Bragantino. Helinho, in the 26th minute of the first half, took advantage of the vacillation of the Juventude defense after a side launched in the area and sent it to the back of the net.
The final stage was more balanced, but Juventude had the best chance in a free kick from Chico, defended by Cleiton. The result, however, remained the same: 1-0 to Red Bull Bragantino.
Red Bull Bragantino’s game
He had control of the match and created chances especially on the right side, with Artur. He got the advantage early and managed it well, despite some scares in the final leg.
the youth game
Showed difficulty in creating plays. He had three good chances: one came out of Pitta’s feet, still in the first half, when no one approached the centre-forward, and others in a free-kick from Chico and Moraes’ header in the final stage, when his performance improved a lot. He remains in debt in the Brasileirão and, to make matters worse, he is the new lantern.
