After two defeats, the Atlético-MG team reacted this Wednesday in Libertadores, beating Alianza Lima by 2-0, for the third round of Group G. Igor Gomes was responsible for scoring two goals. Galo was in control of the whole game, managed to create many opportunities, however, lacked a bit of whim to be able to execute a rout. Hulk scorer ended up wasting a penalty.

Pavón had his debut in the Libertadores with Atlético’s shirt. The Argentine player served six suspension matches that were imposed by Conmebol due to the confusion of Boca Junior players after the match against Alvinegro at Mineirão in 2021, when Pavón was defending the Buenos Aires team.

The Rooster will return to the field next Sunday. At 6:30 pm (Brasília time), the team will face Botafogo at the Nilton Santos stadium, for the fourth round of the Brazilian Championship. Soon after, Alvinegro has two more appointments for the national competition: Cuiabá, on the 10th (away from home) and Internacional, on the 13th (in Belo Horizonte).


In the first half, Atlético managed to maintain complete control of the territory, the creation of plays and possession of the ball. What wasn’t lacking was clear chances for the team to start opening the scoring. It was a good start for the team, with high rotation. Vargas got two. In the first one he finished, he finished a little badly. In the second, the defender ended up cutting on top of the line. Zeracho and Pavón also end up in danger. The Alianza Lima team ended up creating more difficulties in marking, however, even so, Alvinegro got opportunities. Jemerson also lamented another wasted chance. And in the 49th minute of the first half, Rubens ended up suffering a penalty. Hulk was the player who charged and goalkeeper Campos defended.

In the second half, the Rooster continued to lead the match. On the third arrival at the attack, finally, the goal came out. At 13 minutes of the second half, Igor Gomes managed to dominate the area and ended up hitting low: 1 to 0. Alvinegro almost increased the score with Jemerson, but who scored again was Igor Gomes, who took the surplus in the area: 2 to 0 If it weren’t for the lack of attention, the club would have scored one more. Hyoran also missed the completion of the move. Goalkeeper Campos also did very well to prevent more goals from Atlético. Young Cadu also had a great chance.
