. The Patrocínio team, in spite of the defeat and already eliminated from the championship, guaranteed a place in the next edition of the Brazilian D Series Championship scheduled to take place in 2021.

The massacre for Atlético Mineiro took another step in seeing them adapt to Jorge Sampaoli’s requests. Keno was another piece that fit well in a team that is increasingly winning the face of the Argentine manager.

Keno was the one who received most of the ball in the beginning, and the forward managed to make a difference. Allan sent a big ball to Keno, who went to the back and crossed for Nathan to penetrate the area and find the back of the net.

The second goal was found in the same way, through the left-hand of the attack. This time it was Réver who sent a through ball to Keno. The back still managed to cut at first, but Guilherme Arana, in the remainder, sent a ball full of curve that found its way into the top corner. Savarino, on the other side, also wanted to show service. The Venezuelan was left with a corner kick, cut the mark and hit a screamer with his right foot that gave Atletico their third goal.

There was to be more misery for Patrocinense as an own goal via a funny looking headed clearance saw them concede their fourth goal of the evening. An easy win for Sampaoli and company.

Galo advances to the semifinals in third and will have América Mineiro as their opponent.
