Renato, Yuri, Romero and… Eric. Corinthians came within a few centimeters of opening the scoring in the 43rd minute, when Renato Augusto received the ball in the middle and passed a beautiful deep pass to Yuri Alberto. The striker extended the ball and shared it with goalkeeper Pinto, who saw the ball slip away and into Romero’s hands: without a goalkeeper, the Paraguayan shot at goal, but Eric cleared it before the ball crossed the goal line and kept it 0-0 until half-time. .

Cassio appears (and saves). The second half began, like the first phase, with defensive superiority over attacks until the eighth minute, when Atletico presented a beautiful collective pass from the left side that stopped at Vitor Bueno. The midfielder received a diagonal pass and tried to surprise Cassio, but the Corinthians goalkeeper showed reflexes and turned it away for a corner kick.

Hand move. The Corinthians coach decided to make his team more attacking by putting Rojas and Wesley in the places of Moscardo and Romero – and the Paraguayan was even quite angry on the bench.

Franjaco Di Pinto scores a goal in black and white. The home team opened the scoring in the 18th minute in an unusual move, to say the least: Bedo stole the ball from Kaka on the attacking field and sent it to Yuri Alberto. The ball even deflected off Thiago Heleno before the Corinthians striker could touch it. The ball was headed into the hands of Pinto, who lost it and failed incredibly and was unable to avoid the goal: 1-0.
