Despite not having goals, the match had good moments. At 11, Dragão (which finished the round in 8th place with seven points) arrived well with forward Janderson. At 13, Fortaleza responded with the lateral Tinga. Six minutes later, Tinga created another chance for Fortaleza, but goalkeeper Fernando Miguel saved it. After the break, it was time for full-back Nathaniel to almost swing Fortaleza’s goals. He hit from a distance and, after a deflection, the ball scraped the crossbar. On minute four, Romarinho, from Fortaleza, was knocked down inside the area and the referee pointed to the lime mark. But, after being guided by the assistant, he went back and marked an offside in the play. At 23, Janderson wasted a great chance for Dragão hitting goalkeeper Felipe Alves from the left.
In the next round, Fortaleza receives Fluminense at Castelão on Sunday (20). On the same day Atlético-GO will go to Curitiba to face Athletico-PR.
