For the second half of the match, both teams returned unchanged and the game metrics in the first minutes remained the same, São Paulo with possession of the ball and Cobresal defending. The pressured Tricolor coach risked a change in the 60th minute of the game, taking Pablo Maia out of the game and putting Galoppo on. Every minute that passed irritated the São Paulo fans and distressed the players and then the São Paulo team began to rely on set pieces and crosses, even demanding good saves from goalkeeper Requena.


However, it was only 37 minutes into the second half that the cry of relief echoed in the São Paulo stadium. In a great cross ball from James to Calleri, the Argentine headed the ball into the center of the area where Michel Araújo shared it with the goalkeeper and the ball was left for André Silva to open the scoring, in addition, the center forward scored his first goal with the shirt of the Brazil's greatest international champion.
