The draw for Athletico-PR has not modified the method Bahia performs, commanded by an enthusiastic Daniel, particularly searching for the proper performs. When the shot was correct, Borel didn’t have the potential to play the last cross.

In addition, Tricolor confronted an opponent who didn’t forgive defeat – and he additionally noticed Luiz Henrique’s displeasure in making an attempt to chop the shot. The participant skidded, and Khelven performed solely towards Pedro Rocha to show the match round.

With the defeat got here the impulses of some followers, and it didn’t take lengthy for Luiz Henrique to indicate that he “felt the blow”. So a lot so, that Guto’s solely change was to favor the sides at Djalma’s entrance for the second half.

The trade didn’t resolve the issues of the left, however Bahia began the last part nicely. In the first few minutes, Tricolor managed to place stress on Hurricane and create scoring probabilities.

Time was the enemy of Bahia, particularly the defenders. Borel was dangerous on the pitch and the followers abused him. He was changed by André. This, as soon as once more, was not the answer to the group’s issues.. So a lot in order that André did not want a lot to make a mistake, and Guto simply wanted to shout at the crowd:

“Will you burn too?”

As a last transfer, Guto returned to go for a two-wing crew and promoted the entry of Jacaré and Raí in the locations of Patrick and Davó. The impression that remained, nevertheless, is that the nervousness of the group, the uneasiness of the crowd, spoke louder and louder.

At the finish of the match, the “chilly” Athletico-PR took extra dangers and had a probability to kill the match, however Danilo Fernandes prevented it.

Bahia suffers its second consecutive defeat at Fonte Novan, which till lately appeared invincible. He didn’t carry out nicely, however he may have had higher luck in this match.
