Internacional win in normal time but América-MG wins on penalties and advances to the semi-final of the Copa do Brasil
It was a game with drama and much confusion but América-MG eliminated Internacional and have qualified for the semifinals of the Copa do Brasil. This Wednesday, Colorado scored the winning goal 1-0 in the blackout and took the quarter-final decision at Independência to penalties. And gave Coelho! Thiago Galhardo and Uendel wasted their kicks and the Lisca team won 6-5 to guarantee themselves a spot in the next round.
América-MG are qualified on penalties without Matheus having even made a save.
Thiago Galhardo and Uendel, already in alternates, wasted their charges. On the side of Coelho, Daniel Borges also made a mistake but it didn’t matter much in the end.
America-MG ranked … And pitiful scenes on Independência’s lawn. After converting his penalty, Rodinei celebrated by looking at the bench. Then, it was enough for Uendel to miss his charge for some Coelho players to reciprocate the provocation.
It was the beginning of a confusion that took over the Horto field, with exchanges of pushes and fingers raised on both sides. Rodrigo Lindoso was one of the most exalted, until the security teams intervened to contain the spirits.
In addition to the classification, América-MG puts R $ 7 million in its coffers with the place in the semifinal. And it more than triples the projected value in awards for 2020 only with the Copa do Brasil.
Coelho will receive at least R $ 17.7 million in the competition. The amount planned in the budget was R $ 5.7 million.
Qualified, América-MG will face Palmeiras in the semifinals of the Copa do Brasil. The duels of the next phase will be played on 23 and 30 December.
