The only goal of the match came from the feet of the center forward Ricardo Bueno. The shirt 9 of the home team ended up being the name of the game. At 37 minutes of the initial stage, he had the chance to convert a penalty that was awarded with the help of the VAR (video referee), but ended up charging badly and sending him out. However, at 44 of the first half, he hit a strong and low shot from afar to beat goalkeeper Cleiton and set the score for the match.
With this result, Juventude breathed a little more relieved in the fight against relegation. It reached 43 points and moved up three positions to 14th place. Even losing, Bragantino followed in 5th with 53 points. The team's next match will be on Friday (3) against Fortaleza away from home. Bragantino, on the other hand, takes on Atlético-MG on Sunday (5) at Mineirão.
