Inter de Lages gets an advantage and may even draw on the lap against Caxias
O Inter de Lages achieved an excellent advantage in the confrontation against Caxias for the second phase of the D series, with the victory by 2 to 1, in the middle of the Centenary Stadium, Colorado Lageano has the advantage of being able to lose by 1 to 0 to qualify directly to the round of 16 of the competition.
But, anyone who thinks that the construction of this advantage was peaceful was mistaken, quite the contrary, there was no shortage of drama. The situation could have been eased after 12 minutes of the first half, but Marcelinho Paraíba wasted a maximum penalty, defended by goalkeeper Marcelo Pitol. The shower of cold water came four minutes later, with the opening of the scoreboard by Caxias.
Inter did not give up and drew at 36 with Gustavo. At the end of the second half, the home team was just pressure, but at the last minute Marcelinho Paraíba (always him) adjusted and sent a left-hander out of the area in the drawer.
One of the highlights of the game was the great presence of fans from Colorado who went to Caxias do Sul, about 200 occupied the space destined to the visiting fans.
The coach Waguinho Dias remembered that it still has nothing defined. “We are all confident, of course. We did a good result. But we are not yet classified. It will be a very difficult game, an all or nothing for Caxias. We are aware that there is no good man, he has not already won, we are not classified. We are down to earth. Nobody already considers the game won by playing at home. We have some advantages, but we have to play for that ”, said the coach.
The return game against the gauchos takes place next Sunday (31), at 11 am, with the expectation of a large audience at Tio Vida. If they pass the stage, the opponent of the round of 16 will leave the winner of the confrontation between Ituano and Linense.
