Hulk shines against Flamingo. He scored, assisted, ran and scored. He won the first leg of the Copa du Brazil’s Round of 16, in Manirao, in a 2-1 victory over Flamingo. And all this in sacrifice. At the end of the game, he still hit Gabegol.
After the game, the Flamingo striker promised an unfavorable environment for Atletico in Maracan in the return clash. The player insisted that Gallo would know what “pressure” and “hell” were in Rio de Janeiro.

“When it comes to the environment, we are used to playing in a big environment. We have experienced players, national team players, tough players … so there is no boy to face any pressure.”
