In just two rounds, the 2024 Brasileirão has already lived up to the expectations with goals, controversies, flair, and even coaching changes. After an eventful weekend to kick off the season, Matchday 2 continued to prove why this might be an exciting championship.

With just one quiet day between the first round and the next, the ball started rolling again on Tuesday with Bahia’s epic win over Fluminense under heavy rain in Salvador. Wednesday was packed with matches, including Internacional’s surprising away victory over Palmeiras.

The second round concluded on Thursday with a hard-fought 1-0 win for Botafogo against Atlético Goianiense.
