The teams meet again on September 15, at the Maracanã stadium, to define who will advance. But the situation of the team from Gávea is very comfortable, they can even lose by three goals difference to qualify in normal time.
Despite the compliments of Grêmio players to Renato Gaúcho before the ball rolled (in the coach’s first meeting with the athletes he led until April this year), Tricolor and Flamengo played a hot game from the start. This was evidenced, in the initial stage, by the large number of tough matches, fights between athletes and by the expulsion of lateral Isla, due to accumulation of yellow cards.
However, in the second half, Flamengo built its victory and showed that it is a strong candidate for the Copa do Brasil title. The first goal came in the 7th minute, when, after a corner kick, defender Bruno Viana dominated and hit hard.
Mengão in the advantage… AND WHAT an advantage! ⚫️

Grêmio even tried to make use of their numerical advantage, but Rubro-Negro was more efficient and expanded in the 39th minute, when Vitinho found Michael in the area, who hit crossed. Six minutes later the shirt 11 returned to appear in the role of waiter, but this time when crossing for Rodinei to head.
And Flamengo wanted more, and got it in extra time, with Vitinho leaving his in a penalty kick.
