With this result, Boogeyman will play for the third year in a row – relegated in 2018. The details are that this season he had everything to end well for the club, who finished the first stage of the competition in second place and showed good football.
However, there were three defeats in the first three rounds of the quad and a commitment to the pursuit of a miracle. Survival came in the victory over Figuernese with a score of 1 to 0 in the last round. However, another win was needed on Saturday, playing away, which didn’t happen.
The year of the bogeyman is not over yet. The team returns to the field next Saturday 24th against Vitoria in Crusoe. It is the last game of the C series. Next, Paysandu focuses on the Copa Verde feud, which is set to begin at the end of October.
Need to win, Paysandu dominates
Coach Marcio Fernandez and the players knew they had no other choice, either to win or to win. On the field, the hosts dominated the team, but they had the best chance in the first stage. Never enter the ball again.
The trend was for Paysandu to balance the match in the second half, figuring that ABC would be tired of the pressure made in the first stage. This is not what happened. The game was balanced, only in the event of another defensive failure, the two-colored team saw the opponent score.

After the goal, there wasn’t much to do. Marcio Diogoinho put in Mikael’s place and went for all-or-nothing. Danley had a chance to equalize, but headed away. This was the most realistic opportunity to try to level the score and then look for a comeback in the last minutes.
