Tate had his representative in Manirao this Wednesday. He sent assistant Cleber Xavier to Gigante for another Atlético-MG x Flamengo three days apart. Perhaps with the main mission of analyzing Arana, but on the spot, the assistant really saw that it was Givanildo. Hulk in Hulk Knight. Copa du Brazil won 2-1 in the first half of the Round of 16. Worth a cup? Only Tight knows.
In the country that scores the most, three games without a score seem permanent. Hulk’s biggest goal since November 2021 was “fast”. After the game, he gave a reason for the irregularity. For two weeks now, he has not been 100% and has been living with foot pain. Mistakes of every hero. There is nothing close to taking him out of the war.
And Hulk has been around long enough to understand the roster. Athletism. It doesn’t matter what the competition, the moment or the occasion. For his fans, facing Flamingo will always be a battle. There are endless troubles in this classic. It is necessary to “fight” to fight them – not surprisingly, it was the word chosen for the mosaic that lit up and set fire to the door of rivals on the field.
Because of this, perhaps the same goal that started scoring, Atletico went wild in the middle of the second half with a cart of their great hero towards the defensive field. The taste of everything in one night. Round, Assist, Dribble, Sprint, Will. Intensity

The intensity that would have arisen like adrenaline in the veins of the players on the first step on the grass in Gigante da Pampulha like on Sunday. This time, the impression and feeling were even more decibels. Maybe for the night, maybe for the party. More than 50,000 voices in a completely deaf tone. Unity for about 90 minutes, unbridled.
Even – and perhaps especially – in those moments when Flamengo was superior in the game. And they were not rare. Compared to the last offer, another team. Posted with more prepared, smarter, better strategy. Elevenagra is very interested in spoiling the party.
Like Fernando Deniz (5-3 in Fluminense, Maracan) in the most negative results of the season, Doriwal tried to surprise Gallo’s departure. Extreme pressure on high lines, defenders and white midfielders. That’s how Flamingo bothered for the good part of the game, but that’s how he made the first hit.

People who score more are ranked lower. And in exactly 10 seconds, the ball slipped out of Everson’s hand to find Diego Elvis’s net. In the quick transition, the goalkeeper found Mariano, who turned the Hulk on brilliantly. In a speed dispute with Pablo, Rodrigo Caio and Diego Alves, better for the hero.
A touch at the top that emitted a rare sigh of silence in Mineirão. The eyes of Gioneldo, rivals and 53,000 people are fixed on the ball. From Parabola to Earth. Net blast
Here, a break is needed to offer condolences to Mariano. In the middle of the victory party, the parties found out about the death of his mother in the locker room. Welcomed by teammates and coaches who chose not to hold a press conference. To mourn
Collective de Turco has been canceled following news of Mariano’s mother’s death.
In addition to the goal, an extraordinary shot from Hulk from midfield was the only second end of Atletico’s first half. In addition, Flamingo’s dominance over its own merits and acceptance of hosts. The opponent lacked much power in defining tricks – and so did Nathan Silva on a less encouraging night. Atletico lacked the appetite needed for the second goal.
“Bora de Brasileirão! The biggest game offering the game offers at a price. Sign the premiere!”
Similar strategy in the second half, but this time with a more clever rooster. More “fast”. Flamingo continued with the ball (stopped the game with 58%), but again in the 9th minute Muhammad was caught.
Manual counter-attack, successful thanks to Hulk’s inspirational night. In speed and physical conflict, he made Arrascaeta and João Gomes look like juniors. Head held high, dug perfect for Admiral to enlarge. Fumacinha entered the first half after Kino suffered a muscle injury. For the second time in a row, he left his signature in Maine.
“In a big game, Hulk crushed!”, Carroll celebrates The sound of the crowd
If they did not score the first goal, a score of 2-0 forced Flamingo to go to the ropes. It was Atletico’s deadliest knockout time, but he had no intention of hitting the final. Nacho and Allen missed good opportunities. Lázaro, on the other hand, took advantage. The goal that kept the Negroes afloat. The only downside of the almost perfect night for Atlético (on the pitch, it’s noticeable).
The 2-1 result wasn’t bad, but it could have been better. The minimum benefit is an advantage, but it does not give Gallo the right to rest in Maracan. The return promises tension. And by the way, who knows, maybe it’s not positive. Turko and the squad have already shown that they respond better to relaxed pressure. Write on your calendar: July 13 Another final is coming.
