Fortaleza’s goalkeeper was the best on the field with basic defences. One is in the vertical Galoppo at close range, and the other is growing in front of the Calleri within the small area. Most impressive was Luciano’s header, but there was another goal from close range, this powerful kick from Calleri inside the area. No wonder Liao reached the sixth consecutive game without conceding a goal.

It was bad: Luciano misses good chances

The striker was far from the level he usually shows in Sao Paulo. He entered in the second minute after Nikao was injured, but he missed important opportunities: the first in the penalty area with an empty goal. In the second pierced. And in the third he turned in the right direction, but stopped at Fernando Miguel.

The home team opened the game with 70% of the ball in the first half hour, but they didn’t know exactly what to do with it. Well organized, lock down Fortaleza, control the pace of defenses and wait for the counterattack when he can. Diego Costa got a chance in a corner kick, but it’s on its head. Wellington then tried a long shot, and Fernando Miguel shot it.

The move that Fortaleza was waiting for appeared in the 32nd minute. After losing the win in midfield, Juninho Capixaba opened the match, ripping on Pablo Maia’s back and hitting hard to open the scoring.

Sao Paulo woke up and went upstairs

The goal scored made Sao Paulo more daring, willing to risk a little more. A sense of urgency made the team appear more frequently in the opponent’s area, and the new situation quickly turned into a pressure on Fortaleza. Shortly after the goal, a quick attack from Calleri pivoted to Nestor for a powerful kick, then Wellington hit the crossbar on the rebound. Minutes later, in a corner kick, Fernando Miguel saved better in the first half with a header from Galupo after a corner kick.

Fernando Miguel makes his name

It was already like that in the first half, and it was the same in the second: the goalkeeper of Fortaleza was very happy at Morumbi. As São Paulo has grown in the game and the visiting team has retired, the goalkeeper has become more in demand. In the main move, Calleri and Luciano had chances inside the small area, but the first stopped on Fernando Miguel and the second sent them off.

The second half of Sao Paulo was all about putting pressure on the opponent. The team made more, insisted on top and bottom and had clear chances to score their goals, but they missed shots. Luciano hacked a ball into the area, then Calleri got time to hit him in the chest and fill his foot, but hit Fernando Miguel. Tricolor couldn’t find any way to equalize and suffered their fourth defeat in five rounds of the Brazilian League.

Jandrei and Ferraresi get in the way

The goalkeeper and the defender did not speak the same language this afternoon and frightened the fans with two moves in the first half. The first came in the seventh minute, when Jandrei wanted to speed up a goal kick and hit Ferraresi who was passing in front (see below). Then, just before the break, the goalkeeper slipped out of the net poorly and was almost betrayed by his teammate’s cross swerve in the area. In the second half there were also bad starts, but he was lucky because a show was stopped for offside and in another he had time to recover.

No. 10 from Sao Paulo was selected as a starter, but only stayed for two minutes on the field. He tried to intercept a ball from Zé Welison in midfield, felt the pain and had to substitute him. Luciano entered the place. According to Tricolor doctors, Nikau felt a hook in his thigh. He should undergo tests to see if there is any infection at the site.
