Vasco beat Tombense and advance to the third phase of the Copa do Brasil

Goals in the opening stages of both halves saw Vasco edge Tombense to move further in the Copa do Brasil.

There was no upset as Vasco saw off Tombense and moved further in the Copa do Brasil. Gabriel Pec gave the away side the lead after only two minutes into the game. Vasco dominated possession in the first half and should have added to their tally.

However, they finally grabbed the second goal in the 50th minute, with Andrey scoring a sublime free-kick to put Vasco comfortably in the lead.

Six minutes from time, Daniel Amorim pulled one back for Tombense but it only turned out to be a consolation goal.

The victory against Tombense also marked the debut of Morato for Vasco. The former Bragantino forward showed good movement in the game and played a part in most of his side’s attacking play.

Speaking after the game, goal-scorer Andrey was pleased with his contribution to the game: “I am happy to have helped with the goal. I have worked with Marcelo a lot. The games are always difficult, the teams from the countryside are good. The team knew how to suffer and the important thing is the classification”.

With the result, Vasco are guaranteed of a spot in the third round of the competition, which is expected to take place between the 2nd and 9th of June. At the moment, Vasco are yet to know their next opponents, who will be determined after a draw, as per the rules of the competition.

For their next games, both teams will shift their focus to the state championships. Tombense will host América-MG on Sunday in the Mineiro Championship while Vasco take on a big game against Flamengo at Maracanã in the Carioca Championship.
