If Atlético-MG’s performance did not inspire fans in the first half, midfielder Nacho Fernández was one of the few players to stand out. The Argentine maintains the level of performance, despite the team changing a lot. Against Bragantino, the jersey 26 was called the game once again and was the best name of the Rooster on the field.

Who is bad: Zaracho

The question every athlete is asking now is: Where is Zaracho from 2021? Selected as the second most important team in the Brasileirão win last year, after only Hulk, the Argentine has struggled this season. He does not even remember the player who stood out from the previous season.

Atlético-MG match: Something is missing

Football appearing in most of the games against Bragantino is not bad, but it is not a performance that can be trusted. There is still something missing for Atletico to find their best moments. The bad start to the game, like it was in the classic against América-MG, has been repeated. But on the other hand, Galo dominated Bragantino, who practiced unstoppable in the final stages.

Exchange before the game

Shortly after the release of the line, Red Bull Bragantino made the switch. Midfielder Lucas Evangelista felt muscle cramps and gave way to Sorriso.

Sasha armed the counterattack

Bragantino’s goal was inspired by a racist performance by striker Eduardo Sasha, who tried to avoid a backslash. But, after the soccer game, the ball stays with the home team and ends with Ytalo finishing.

Penalty and export or offside?

In the 19th minute of the first half, Atlético were penalized for a foul and saw defender Léo Ortiz receive a red card, for using his hand to prevent Arana goal. But, after five minutes of testing, the VAR found that side Galo were offside and created a lot of attacks on Atletico. The outcry is due to the fact that right-back Hurtado tried to cut the ball and was unable to, which would have guided Guilherme Arana into a foul.

One of the most beautiful moments of the tournament was when Keno attacked the right Hurtado and used a beautiful pen to mark. Bragantino player still can not be offended.

Dominance serves goals

By the middle of the first half, Atlético started to determine the outcome of the game and relied on Bragantino. This was the case in the second half, until Galo got a beautiful goal from Nacho Fernández, in free kick.

Raul returns after nine months

In August last year, midfielder Raul worked at his right knee and was sidelined for nine months. A return to the challenge took place this Wednesday. After the final whistle, the Bragantino athlete crossed the field on his knees thanks to a comeback. Excited, Raul hugged all of his friends.
