Who did well: German Cano

Now with 15 goals, Germán Cano moved further from being Fluminense’s top scorer this season. The Argentine took the risk in the first half of the match, when he hit the net from outside. In second place, he did not forgive: after Wellington’s inauguration, he ruled, confusing Pedro Henrique with his left hand and beating Bento. In the final stage, he scored a goal with a big goal: after crossing from Luiz Henrique’s right-back and defragment, the striker killed him in the chest and went into the corner, making L once more and defining the victory. of Influenza. The 14 jersey has four goals in the last three matches.

Who was worse: Pablo

If Cano needed two chances to score, Pablo had three big ones and lost them all. The first, with an amazing tender, received practically under the bar and sent. In the second, he invaded the area with a chance and hit the weak, in the hands of Fábio. The final took place after Canobbio’s cross from the right, which the shirt 92, alone, even stretched, but could not complete with a goal. Missing goals cost him dearly in a game played at Raulino de Oliveira Stadium.

The flu starts well, maintains a profit and kills the game at the end

Fluminense started the match strong in the offensive line, creating three good chances in less than 15 minutes. Two with Cano, and then one with Luiz Henrique. In their second, after a good launch, Cano opened the scoring. With that advantage, Fernando Diniz’s team even slowed down, but remained the best, wanting to close the game and ensure stability again at the feet of the Argentine striker, after scoring in the 32nd minute of the second half.

Athletico-PR takes time to change, and it lacks presentation

Athletico-PR watched the Flu attack early in the game, and had to come out to draw after seven minutes. When the Hurricane game started, the team missed good chances to come out of the draw, especially with Pablo, and was unable to get back into the game. Felipão’s team was penalized for missing a goal in the final half of the game, when Cano scored again. In extra time, Matheus Felipe received a cross and completed it to minimize the impact.

sequence of game events

Seven minutes into the game, Germán Cano opened the scoring for Fluminense. In the 32nd minute of the final stage, the Argentine scored a brilliant goal and increased the result. At the age of 45, Matheus Felipe dropped to Athletico Paranaense.

à la De Jong, Luiz Henrique beat Nino and Pablo

A minute after the goal opened the scoring, an unusual move attracted Raulino de Oliveira’s attention. In response, Luiz Henrique arrived with his leg up and punched his colleague Nino in the chest with the folds of his shoe. Later, the mess was still left to Pablo. Both were treated and, fortunately Fernando Diniz and Felipão, were not injured. The move reminded the Dutchman Nigel De Jong of the offense against Spaniard Xabi Alonso in the 2010 World Cup final.
