Sport drew 1-1 with Flamengo on Friday night (3) at Arena Pernambuco, in Recife. The match was valid for the 35th round of the Brazilian Championship.
The first goal of the match was scored by Rubro-Negro from Rio. 39 minutes into the opening stage, forward Michael took advantage of a great move by center forward Pedro to send the first goal to the back of the net. Leão's tie came at five in the final stage, when midfielder Gustavo took advantage of the opponent's defense to invade the area and finish in the exit of goalkeeper Hugo.
On minute 10, referee Leandro Vuaden even scored a penalty for Flamengo. But, with the help of the VAR (video arbiter), he ended up going back.
With the vice-championship already defined, the team from Rio de Janeiro reached 71 points. Meanwhile, Sport, already relegated to Serie B, reached 34 points and remained in the penultimate position. Rubro-Negro's next game will be against Santos at Maracanã next Monday (6). Sport will go to Chapecó to pick up the home team on the same day.

With these three points, Dragão reached 47, occupying the 11th position and still dreaming of a place in the 2022 Pre-Libertadores.
