Amazonas’ 2023 season was perfect, with access to Series B of the Brasileirão and the third division title. The 2024 season also started well, with the title of the 1st round of the Amazonense Championship, which guaranteed a place in the state final. Furthermore, the team managed to do well in the Copa do Brasil by advancing to the third phase.

But because he is the state’s representative in this year’s second division, the demand for results is greater. Especially because the team now has a greater financial contribution than in previous seasons and was able to “bulk up” the squad with reinforcements. But two recent eliminations, and the way it happened, leaves a “flea behind the ear”.

The first elimination occurred in the Copa Verde, in the round of 16. After losing the first game away from home, 2-1 to Remo, they needed to win by two goals to advance to the stage. The team even took a 2-0 lead in the first half, but suffered a draw and said goodbye to the competition.

The second fall occurred this Sunday, in the quarterfinals of the second round of the Amazonense Championship. The team was playing for a draw to reach the semifinals. Just like in the duel against Remo, the team took the lead in the second half, but suffered a comeback and lost 3-1 to Parintins.

Taking advantage of the season

But despite the weight of the eliminations, Amazonas’ numbers this season are good. The team has a success rate of 62.9%. Of the 18 games played in the Campeonato Amazonense, Copa Verde and Copa do Brasil, the team lost only four games, drew another four and won 10 games.

Focus on the final and time to work

But the elimination in the quarterfinals of Amazonense’s return and in the Copa Verde does not mean that all is lost. Now, the team will have more time to prepare for the final of the Amazonense Championship, Copa do Brasil (opponent yet to be defined) and debut in Series B, scheduled for the 19th, 20th or 21st of April, against Sport, at home. .
