In a match in which joy and sadness went hand in hand, Brazil saw their shirt number 10 celebrate a great goal and, in the next minute, see it annulled and, in addition, be sent off for a foul in the bid.
On Remo’s side, forward Lucas Tocantins didn’t have good memories of his goal either. Despite saving his team from defeat, he was seriously injured on the move and had to go to the hospital.
Brasil de Pelotas had a better first half, had more ball, but didn’t take advantage of the few opportunities they built. On minute 19, in a quick counterattack, Vidal arrived with danger and hit the edge of the area, in the corner. Goalkeeper Vinícius made a beautiful save, throwing the ball to corner.
In the 29th minute, the Xavante team’s greatest volume of play was finally rewarded. Kevin attacked from the left side and crossed low. Erison was opportunistic and didn’t waste it. Brazil 1 to 0.
Even without creating many opportunities, Remo reached a draw. On minute 38, also on the left, Victor Andrade crossed for Lucas Tocantins to climb higher than the defenders and head into the goal, but, in the move, he also hit the head of a defender and got the worst of it. Lying on the ground, and practically immobile, he didn’t even manage to celebrate the tie. With a cut on his head, he bled a lot and needed care while still on the lawn. With a very swollen face, and suspected of having a fractured face, he was replaced by an ambulance to undergo tests at the hospital.

And if Tocantins couldn’t celebrate the goal, Remo fans almost did too. In the first play after the ball went out, Kevin crossed the ball, the ball went through the entire area and Netto appeared on the other side of the penalty area, hitting first, crossed, in the corner of goalkeeper Vinícius. The second goal of Brasil de Pelotas, however, was annulled by the VAR, who saw an almost millimeter offside at the origin of the move.
In the final stage, Brazil continued to have more possession of the ball and reached the middle of the opposing defense. I created some chances, but I didn’t take advantage. On the other side, Remo threatened little. On minute 20, Rildo received a split ball, pushed the opponent to ensure possession and hit a great goal from outside the area. But the VAR took action once again and accused the absence of shirt 10.
The referee, who was very close to the shot, agreed with the video referee and signaled the foul, nullifying the goal. To make matters worse, Rildo took the second yellow card for the foul and ended up being sent off.
Rildo’s expulsion changed the game. The home team, which until then was closer to a victory that had not come for eight matches, started to see Remo grow in the game. The team from Pará started to have more the ball and occupy more of the opponent’s area. He created chances and almost scored in moves by Felipe Gedoz and Marlon. But the equality lasted until the end.
With the result, Xavante reached 16 points and is in the vice-lantern of the series B. Remo is in 12th place, with 26 points. In the next round, Brazil travels to face Vasco, on Friday (3). Remo receives Botafogo a day later.
