Fluminense come from a goal down to beat Goiás 4-2 in Serrinha
Moura opened the scoring in the 23rd minute and signaled to heaven and was thrilled to dedicate the goal to his mother, Dona Júnia, who died last Friday, after a battle with cancer.
It wasn’t long until Yago grabbed the equalizer in the 41st minute.
In the 53rd minute, Flu turned things around with a goal from veteran forward Fred. Idol of Fluminense, the number 9 completed his game number 300 with the tricolor shirt. And if last Sunday, he couldn’t celebrate a goal on his birthday, this time he didn’t let the special date go by. He scored Flu’s second in the match with a beautiful header. It was his 174th for the club and he marked the occasion in style.
It proved to be a great encounter as Moura once again leveled matters from the penalty spot in the 67th minute. The penalty came via a contentious decision aided by the VAR.
It was Fluminense to dominate the game from that moment onwards as goals from Nene and Diago in the space of six minutes secured an emphatic win for Odair Hellman’s side.
With the victory, Fluminense reaches 21 points, wins two positions and moves up to sixth place, in the classification zone for the pre-Libertadores. Goiás continues with nine points, in the last place, three points from the penultimate. It is worth remembering that Esmeraldino still has three games postponed to play
