From Santos' hands to Pedro's bike: Flamengo puts Athletico behind the wheel in almost two minutes;  See

Flamengo beat Athletico-PR with a fine goal, but it’s not just the plasticity of Pedro’s bike that deserves to be highlighted. The way he put the opponent in the circle for almost two minutes summed up how well Dorival Júnior managed to put his style of play into his men’s minds.

From the hands of goalkeeper Santos to the precise finishing of Pedro, Flamengo achieved the goal in two acts, divided into a period of one minute and 42 seconds. Arrascaeta first stopped in great defense of Bento. Afterwards, the goalkeeper has nothing to do with the acrobatics of the red-black striker.

It should be noted that all 11 Flamengo players had the ball in the aforementioned cut.

First act: 33 taps in 40 seconds

Pedro scores a great cycling goal against Athletico-PR

In the 10th minute of the second half, Santos enters a deflection from Pablo with a header in the middle and begins to play with his hands on the left foot of Filipe Luís.

Filipe dominates and leaves for Vidal, who reverses to Fabrício Bruno. The defender plays for his team-mate Leo Pereira, a situation that shifts the opposition’s first scoring line from one side to the other.

Leo gives it to Filipe, who walks on the opposing field, shoots in seven touches of the ball and leaves a backheel for Arrascaeta.

Vidal receives from the Uruguayan and gives it to Gabigol, who goes from the right to the center to play Pedro first. 21 makes the pivot and, with a heel strike, takes Pedro Henrique out of the fight.

Arrascaeta dominates, invades the surface, gives one more touch and drops the bomb from the left. Bento steals to defend himself.

Second act: press the right side, the spinning team and the bike

Flamengo’s goal comes out 54 seconds with a very important participation of the sides. the team gives 44 ball touches and rotates it again from right to left. Only Fabrício Bruno and Santos did not touch her during the game.

After Bento saves Arrascaeta, the ball is dropped to the left side of Athletico’s defence. Instead of putting Abner at ease, Rodinei puts pressure on the back line, forcing the Atletico left-back to dispatch the ball.

Still on the right, it is now João Gomes who presses, overtakes Pablo and releases the ball. Gabigol returns first and Gomes hands it to Everton Ribeiro, who begins to design the goal move with Rodinei.

The two would trade passes three more times until Pedro fixed the bike. But, before that, with Athletico’s defense well posted by this sector, they turned the game to the left.

Fifteen seconds before the goal, Pedro left the box and played for Filipe Luís, who positioned himself as central midfielder throughout the plot. Filipe finds Gabigol, who misses the comeback attempt. Then Athletico’s last touch comes until the ball finds the net. Khelven comes out head first from the box.

Vidal kills with great ease and leaves it to Gabigol, who first gives it to João Gomes. Freedom regained by Flamengo keeping the rebound generates annoyance in the opposing crowd, who boo their own team.

Gomes gives a side pass to Rodinei, who receives with the left foot, turns with the right and touches Ribeiro. The 7 dominates with the right and stretches with the left.

Rodinei shoots and places himself between Matheus Felipe and Erick. Basically, it goes the first time, and the rest everyone already knows.

Goal from a very well trained Flamengo, who had the patience to pass the ball from side to side and make the best decisions from the 10th minute to the 11th and 42nd minutes of the final phase.

A complex construction that reverses the argument of those who say that Dorival Júnior went to Flamengo to do the simple thing. Dorival, through repetition, has made the complicated simple.
