Magnus Sorocaba is once again in the final of the National Futsal League (LNF). This Monday (29), the team from São Paulo defeated Foz Cataratas by 5-1 at Arena Sorocaba (SP) and will decide the title for the fifth time in eight years of existence, being the third in a row. In the first leg, in Foz do Iguaçu (PR), eight days ago, broadcast live by TV Brasil , the teams tied 1-1.
Cachorrão's opponent will be another from Paraná, Cascavel, debuting in the finals. Last Sunday (26), Serpent Tricolor eliminated Carlos Barbosa in overtime by winning 1-0, after being defeated 4-1 in normal time. TV Brasil aired the game live directly from the gym at Centro Municipal de Eventos Sérgio Luiz Guerra, in Carlos Barbosa (RS).
The Paulistas built most of the result in the first half. On minute three, Leozinho received it on the right wing and kicked it across, with the beak, to open the scoring. Two minutes later, fellow winger Ricardinho took advantage of winger Neto's error in controlling the ball, took goalkeeper Peixe off the pitch and raised the ball. At ten, Rodrigo dominated on the right and hit low, scoring the third.
In the final stage, Foz launched the attack, but gave up spaces that Magnus knew how to take advantage of. At four minutes, Rodrigo made a great throw for the winger Leandro Lino, behind the mark, to finish in the right corner. At 12, the visitors took advantage of Willian, in a move started by William Bolt, also acting as goalkeeper, but in the next move, the pivot Cigar completed Leozinho's low cross in the area, on the right, defining the score.
Magnus qualified for the final with ten wins, five draws, three defeats and a technical index (average of points per game) of 1.95. Cascavel had the best campaign throughout the championship: 13 wins, four draws, three defeats and 2.15 in the technical index. The people from Paraná will have the advantage of the field command in the return match of the final. The days and times will still be announced by LNF.
