Who was wrong: Lucas Mugni
The Bahia midfielder had a good first half, but missed everything in the second. He took a yellow card at eight when pulling Ronald and avoiding a promising attack. At 11, he committed the penalty on Janderson and deserved to be sent off, but referee Ramon Slaughtered Abel did not show the second yellow. Soon after, he left the field for Rossi’s entrance.
Atlético-GO tries by the sides

Well compacted Bahia
The Steel Squadron acted with the lines very close to attack and, mainly, to defend itself. The Tricolor did not give space to the rival and prevented the shots near or inside the area. After he left behind the scoreboard, coach Guto Ferreira put the team forward and got the tie. But the team faltered in the end and took the second goal in a counterattack.
first half of little football
The opening 45 minutes reserved little emotion for the fans. The 14 absences and recurrent medical appointments also hampered the pace of the game. The only successful submission came from André Luís, at 15. On the right, he hit the low corner of goalkeeper Danilo Fernandes, who showed good reflex and managed to deflect it to corner.
In addition, the most dangerous conclusions were a shot by Gilberto at 33, which went up a lot, for Bahia and a shot by Zé Roberto, who, at 40, brought from the left to the center and hit hard.
With a penalty, Dragon opens the scoreboard
Janderson took advantage of the mistake made by defender Gustavo Henrique, stole the ball and was only stopped inside the area with a stroke by Lucas Mugni. The defensive midfielder already had the yellow card and, even with the referee marking the penalty, he was not sent off. Marlon Freitas, at 15. charged very well and no chances of defense.
Bahia launches, draws, but suffers the second
Coach Guto Ferreira didn’t expect anything and has already drawn Mugni to the entrance of forward Rossi. The coach made the Tricolor press and left the team in Goiás back. Just 12 minutes were enough for equality to return to the scoreboard. Rossi took advantage of the cross and hit the ball into the middle of the area. Rodallega got ahead of defender Pedro Henrique and hit the back of the net.
When the match was already on its way to the end, Lucão worked well with his back turned and played for Janderson. The forward accelerated from the right and sent a bomb to ensure Atlético-GO’s victory.
Dragon suffers from injuries
With just 17 minutes of the ball rolling, André Luis went down and had to be replaced by Ronald. Still at the end of the first stage, João Paulo also asked to leave the field, but coach Marcelo Cabo waited the break to put Rickson in his place, thus avoiding burning his second stop for the changes.
