- He played his first game since July 2022, when he injured his knee;
- He was substituted 15 minutes into the second half for Noga to come on.
Bangu exchanges passes, presses out and forces Flamengo’s mistakes. The hosts complicated Rubro-Negro at the beginning of the game, building from the defense when they had the ball and pressing the Flamengo players as soon as they lost possession.
Rodrigo Caio misses the ball and Bangu reaches the goal. The defender faltered on a pass close to the midfielder, which led Bangu to come face to face with Matheus Cunha. Felizardo stopped the goalkeeper, but Renatinho did not forgive.
Flamengo wakes up in the second half and draws with a great goal by Lorran. Rubro-Negro returned to the field hungry for the ball, putting pressure on the opponent in their field, and that’s how they reached equality, in a finalization at the angle of the 16-year-old jewel.
Noga replaces Rodrigo Caio, but injures himself and leaves the field in two minutes. Defender entered in the 14th minute of the second half, injured himself on his first shot with the ball and left crying for Diegão to enter.
1×0: Bangu scored in the 43rd minute of the first half. Rodrigo Caio missed the ball, Marcos Paulo tried to cut the ball and the ball fell to Felizardo, who finished in Matheus Cunha’s defense. Renatinho got the rebound and finished to the bottom of the goal.
1×1: Lorran left everything the same 10 minutes into the second half. Mateusão stole the ball inside Bangu’s penalty area and played it for the attacker, who put the ball in Paulo Henrique’s angle.
