In turn, Sport beats Treze-PB and guarantees red-black revelry at Carnival for the Copa do Nordeste

In turn, Sport beat Treze-PB 3×1, on Friday night (9), at Arena de Pernambuco. The match was valid for the 2nd round of the group stage of the Copa do Nordeste. All the goals in the match were scored in the second half. The people from Paraíba took the lead, with striker Xandy. Just two minutes later, at 19, Leão equalized the score, with the help of defender Rafael Castro, who tried to deflect a cross from Felipinho and ended up sending it against his own goal.

The turn that guaranteed the red and black revelry at Carnival was from the killer Gustavo Coutinho. The center forward scored his fifth goal of the year, isolating himself as the team’s top scorer this season. In stoppage time, the star of the base’s jewel shone again: Pedro Lima. The right-back scored his second goal in 2024, increasingly consolidating himself as a reality.

Coach Mariano Soso’s team, however, could lose positions, as all the other teams will still play this weekend.

Sport returns to the field next Wednesday (14), again for the Regional. This time the opponent will be Itabaiana-SE, at 7pm, at Batistão, in Aracaju. Treze-PB will host CRB at Amigão, in Campina Grande, one day later, at the same time.

Sport was superior in the first half and was closer to opening the scoring than Treze. The people from Paraíba started the match with a high marking and caused some danger to goalkeeper Caíque França. Galo’s boldness, however, enabled a series of counterattacks against Leão.

The red-blacks, however, abused passing errors in the final third of the field and were unable to convert the opportunities into scoring chances. The clearest attack came from midfielder Pedro Vilhena, who almost scored a beautiful cover goal, but the ball hit the post.

Sport began to have more control in the midfield, organizing more plays in the midfield, something little seen in the initial stage.

Contrary to what the volume of the game indicated, it was Treze who opened the scoring. In a quick transition, the black and white team crossed into the penalty area and the red and black defense got the ball out badly, leaving it for Xandy to send into the back of the net.

But there wasn’t even time to celebrate. Just two minutes later, the people from Paraíba scored again, but this time it was against them. Rafael Castro tried to deflect a cross from Felipinho and sent it into his own goal. The immediate response made Sport ignite in the match, driven by the more than 10 thousand fans who attended the Arena, despite the carnival in Recife having already started.

And the pressure took effect. He was responsible for guaranteeing the turnaround, the season’s top scorer: Gustavo Coutinho. An opportunist, the number 9 appeared behind the defense to take advantage of Fabrício Dominguez’s touch and celebrate in São Lourenço da Mata. In stoppage time, there was still time for another Leonine highlight to give final numbers to the match, right-back Pedro Lima. The main promise of the youth teams, the 17-year-old player scored his second goal of the year and is already consolidating himself even more as a reality. End of game: Sport 3×1 Treze-PB.
