The Fênix de Camaragibe, little by little, was released on the field. And he had two opportunities, the first with Radsley who finished wide. The second was with Giva, who was blocked by the red and white defense. Despite a short moment of instability, Timbu continued to control the main actions of the match. The best opportunity fell at the feet of defender Rafael Vaz, after a hit and run, the ball fell to the defender, who “punched” the ball. Afterwards, Kauan finished strongly, but the Azuline defense managed to save it on the line. Despite the best chances in the first stage, Timbu didn’t know how to convert the ball into the net.

In the second half, coach Roberto Fernandes bet on two changes to Fênix: Moisés Ribeiro and Israel left, Rômulo and Gustavinho entered. At seven, after an error with the white-and-white ball, Radsley gave a great assist to Giva, who received it inside the area and hit it with no chance of defense for Vagner, opening the scoring at Arena de Pernambuco.
