With two more balls in the net, the top scorer reached 73 goals with the shirt of Fla, a brand that places him (alongside Renato Abreu) in the position of the club’s top scorer in the 21st century. Rogério Ceni’s team smothered the tricolores and sought the goal incessantly.
At the end of the leaderboard, Fla reached 19 points and left his spot in the semi-final of the State. On Sunday, Rubro-Negro faces Palmeiras, 11am, at Mané Garrincha, in the Super Cup decision.
Arrascaeta commands the recital
He had a goal and there were still enough passes and accurate ball strings. With great performance, the midfielder Arrascaeta was the individual highlight of Flamengo’s defeat against Madureira. The number 14 made a great partnership with Filipe Luís on the left side and was always dangerous for the tri-color defenders.
With a lot of intensity to retake the ball and hunger to attack the rival, the Flamengo team was a juggernaut in Volta Redonda. The team abused the exchange of positions and infiltrations to knock out an opponent who can do little to contain the Brazilian champion. In the beginning of the season, the red-blacks draw attention by the intensity with which they have faced the matches so far after a few weeks of preparation.
Madureira tries to leave
Despite the superiority of the rival, Madureira was not the 90 minutes behind the line of the ball. Alfredo Sampaio’s team tried to take advantage of the few loopholes left by Rubro-Negro to attack and took some work to Diego Alves, being awarded the goal of honor.
Rodrigo Caio back
Returning after recovering from a thigh injury, defender Rodrigo Caio made his debut this season and did well. Without much trouble with rival strikers, the defender did not have as much work on his return. He was replaced by Bruno Viana.
On the crossbar twice
At 13 minutes of the initial stage, Flamengo’s attack was on Madureira and stamped the post twice in a row. Bruno Henrique hit the post with a header. On the left, Diego hit the cross and stopped on the crossbar.
Fall or undefeated
With the loss to Flamengo, the Campeonato Carioca has no more undefeated. Until the beginning of this round, the only team that had not been won was exactly the Tricolor, which had five draws and two victories.
At 16 minutes of the initial stage, Gabigol opened the scoring after taking a penalty. At 21, Gerson crossed and scored. At 28, Gabigol took advantage of rebound and expanded. At 43, Diego hit, the ball bounced in front of the goalkeeper and entered. In the 12th minute of the second half, Luiz Paulo scored with his head and decreased. At 19, Arrascaeta hit the corner and made the fifth.
