Without a goal in eight matches, and therefore, without winning this period, the sport remains within the relegation zone of the Brazilian championship. This Sunday in Arena Pernambuco, in Recife, lost to Fortaleza 1 a 0 It remains in the nineteenth and penultimate position with only 17 points. Ciara’s team broke its six-game fast without a win and interrupted a streak of three defeats in a row. Thus, he returned to third place with 36 points.
The sport has not won since August 1, when they scored 1-0 against Bahia. But the team, with each match, seems to get used to the hurdles and see its way back to the second division closely in 2022. Fortaleza is trying to stay among the top spots, and they have a great campaign that, at least for now, is considered surprising.
Given this scenario, the game started out as expected, with a lot of tags and little tech. Whoever scores a goal, for sure, will be close to winning. Fortaleza opened the scoring in the 32nd minute of the first half. Lucas Krespim took a corner kick on the left side and defender Marcelo Beneventoto rose higher than anyone else and headed it in.
The second half started with the Pernambuco team training the reaction, but without the creativity and technique to overcome the opponent’s defensive system. Fortaleza even considered exploiting counter-expansion attacks, but he also didn’t show offensive power. With that, he chose the easiest thing: catch the ball and guarantee the score.
In round 23, Sport will face Gremio, next Sunday, at 8:30 pm, in Porto Alegre. On Saturday, Fortaleza hosts the Atlético Goianiense, at Arena Castelão, in Fortaleza.
