Even pushed by its passionate crowd that attended the São Januário stadium, the Basque bid farewell to the Copa do Brasil after being beaten 6-5 by ABC, on Thursday night (16). In regulation time the match ended in a 0-0 tie.
With the ball rolling, the Cruzmaltino and Mais Querido did not have a good performance, with the home team forcing too much on the balls raised in the area and creating few clear goal opportunities in the first half. In the final step the technician Mauricio Barbieri he still tried to improve his team’s offensive production by fielding midfielders Nenê and Orellano, but the changes were unsuccessful.
Thus, equality lasted until the end of the 90 minutes, which took the match to a penalty shootout. And in the maximum penalties, Vasco was very close to the classification, as Jair, Miranda, Nenê and Puma Rodríguez were efficient.
However, when it came to confirming the classification (since Walfrido had lost to ABC), Pedro Raul hit over the goal and postponed the end of the dispute. And then the Potiguar team did not fail anymore and secured the classification after Orellano kicked very far from the goal defended by Simão.
