Brasileirão: Vasco loses to Red Bull Bragantino in the second round

After beating Grêmio in their debut, Vasco was defeated by Red Bull Bragantino 2-1, this Wednesday (17), in Bragança Paulista, in the second round of the Brazilian Championship.

The duel was conditioned by a goal from Nacho Laquintana right at the beginning, 5 minutes into the game, taking advantage of a mistake by Vasco goalkeeper Leo Jardim.

The Rio team managed to draw in the final stage, with a goal from Argentine Vegetti, but Vitinho once again gave the home team the lead in the 32nd minute, taking advantage of a deflection by defender Maicon.

With four points, Massa Bruta takes third place in the table. Vasco stops at three points and is in eighth place.

The teams return to the field on Saturday (20) for the third round of the Brasileirão. Vasco has the classic with Fluminense, at 4pm at Maracanã, while Bragantino hosts Corinthians, at 6:30pm, at Nabi Abi Chedid. Check out the complete classification and the Series A table.

Bragantino takes the lead

Bragantino imposed an intense rhythm from the opening whistle, as is characteristic of Pedro Caixinha’s team playing at Nabi Abi Chedid, and soon managed to take the lead.

In a rare mistake by Léo Jardim, who passed Hurtado’s weak shot into the area, Laquintana took advantage and pushed it into the net: 1-0 for Massa Bruta against Vasco!

The match was open and Bragantino almost expanded with a new play involving Hurtado and Laquintana, but the full-back’s shot went close to the opponent’s goal post, at 18.

Just give Vegetti

Then, it was center forward Vegetti who had the best chances in the first stage. At 23, he headed over Lucão’s goal.

At 31, he found the net, but Rossi’s offside position, who provided the assist, was marked, and the net no longer shook before the break, despite the chances of both teams.

Back in the second half, the scenario remained the same: Vegetti hit the post, at five, and headed dangerously, at seven. The aerial ball was Vasco’s way.

And, after insisting so much, Ramón Díaz’s team reached a draw. At 17, David played well with Rayan and crossed to Vegetti, who, in the end, left everything the same: 1 to 1!

Vitinho guarantees victory for Massa Bruta

Both Caixinha and Díaz put more speed on the field with the substitutions, looking for the three points. The game, therefore, remained open, with space for both teams.

Caixinha’s changes were more accurate. In Bruninho’s first move, at 26, the striker almost scored with a shot to the right of Vasco’s goal.

At 33, Eric Ramires activated Vitinho on the right side – two athletes activated after the break. The number 28 dribbled past two markers and hit the goal.

Maicon’s slight deflection caused the ball to go into the corner, ending Léo Jardim’s chances of a reaction: 2-1 for Bragantino!
