a Atlético PR Compulsory, but did not leave 0-0 with Estudiantes in a valid first-leg match Quarter-finals of the Copa Libertadoresplayed tonight inside the Arena da Baixada, in Curitiba (PR).

The match was marked by a controversy that included a penalty for Parana in the first half. Even the match referee, Jesus Valenzuela, had his hand on the ball pointed by Godoy into Coelho’s header, but Julio Pasconan, who is in charge of VAR technology, overturned the decision.

In the last stage, defender Thiago Heleno’s goal was disallowed after a cross from Chlevin after the intervention of the video referee, who collided with the team’s offside.

Judging aside, the team coached by Luis Felipe Scolari lacked a goal. The team missed several chances to score, especially in the second half, amid attempts, whether in the dead ball or kicks from outside the area.

The teams returned to the field to determine their place in the semi-finals of the continental championship next Thursday (11), from 21:30 (Brasilia time), in La Plata. Whoever surpasses the level faces the winner Palm trees x Atletico MG.

Before that, Atletico face MG, on Sunday (7), in a match Brazilian Championship. The Argentines are also committed to facing San Lorenzo in the Argentine championship this weekend.

Best: Khalafin

Atlético’s young team stood out strong and was the main player who created the home team’s scoring chances thanks to his accurate crosses. Khalfan, who was involved in both the penalty kick and the disallowed goal, was still close to scoring in injury time, missing his pass near Andegar’s goal.

Worst: Pablo

The striker could not stand the Argentine defenders, and at the beginning of the second half he was replaced by Vitor Roque – much to the relief of Paraná fans, who demanded the departure of the number 5 shirt since the break.

Argentinians at home?

The start of the match was marked by the strong rhythm imposed by the two teams, who abandoned the “study of the opponent” and engaged in good offensive moves.

Even far from home, the Argentines arrived with more danger. In five minutes, Castro received an offside throw and hit the net just outside Paraná – the show was invalidated for offside.

In the 16th minute, Estudiantes almost opened the scoring with one of his strengths: the high ball. In a corner kick by Zaki, defender Lulu rose higher than anyone else and headed home hard. Pinto performed a miracle and took his hands.

After almost pressure from the visitors, the match began to collect a greater number of errors and difficult interventions between the Brazilians and the Argentines.

The first to be warned by referee Jesus Valenzuela was midfielder Fernandinho, who elbowed Rodriguez and received a yellow card. Shortly thereafter, Lolo Canopio missed from behind, but ended up with only a verbal warning.

A penalty is awarded, but the VAR goes into effect

In the 24th minute, Atletico scored a penalty kick scored by Valenzuela. The winger Khalfan fired a long shot at Coelho, and to avoid the goal kick, the striker headed towards the middle of the area. With the swerve, the ball hit Godoy’s left arm.

Quickly, the referee signaled the penalty, but the VAR, by order of Julio Paquinan, to review the show.

After analyzing in the booth, the referee canceled the appointment and angered the fans present at the Arena da Baixada.

scares dead balls

Even with the penalty kick canceled, he did not discourage Atletico, began to take charge of the match and attacked the opponent, mainly with dead balls, before the break.

The Brazilians had at least three scary kicks ahead of Estudiantes in free-kicks: First, Khalfan forced Andegar into action. Then Terence sent goal. In the 40th minute, Coelho’s turn came to strike, and after passing the barrier, he saw the Argentine goalkeeper make a save again.

Offensive errors and changes by Felipão

Athetico returned for the second time more “out of calibration”: in just 15 minutes, Coelho, Terrance and Hugo Moura risked from a middle distance, but missed.

The Argentine response came on the counterattack, and Bayati almost scored from the bunker after Bento went out of the goal to choke a shot.

Amid the errors in the presentations, Filipao listened to the fans and changed the team: Pablo and Terrance gave way, respectively, to Vitor Roque and rookie Alex Santana. Soon, two more companies entered the exchange: Vitino and Leo Citadini entered the Canopio vacancies and Hugo Moura. Meanwhile, Rollheiser replaced Piatti at Estudiantes.

Brazilian pressure with a touch of Khalif

Substitutions made Atletico faster and more dangerous. In the 27th minute, Khlevin hit a free kick and Fernandinho deviated it diagonally. Defender Pedro Henrique, already in the small area, was unable to direct and send a header.

A minute later, it was Leo Citadini’s turn to squander another Khalfan cross – the full-back risked himself out of the box and won shortly thereafter. In the attack, Fernandinho sent Andegar goal.

Pressure from the home team, always with attacks from the right and with the activation of Khlevin, pushed the ball into the net.

And the 21-year-old athlete, in another elegant cross, hit Thiago Heleno in the head, who tested for the back of the goal. Despite the party, the play was canceled due to the team’s offside.

Recent Attempts

In injury time, Khalfan, in front of Andegar’s goal, stunned the Argentines with a shot that went close to the crossbar.

The response came with striker Pellegrino, who entered instead of Mauro Mendes and almost scored the net for Estudiantes in the final show. But the result did not change until the final whistle.
