Matchday 24 of the Brasileirão is history, and we enjoyed some intense and exciting matches.
In this second half of the season, everything seems to indicate that Botafogo is dropping in performance, as, currently, only 7 points separate them from Palmeiras and 8 from Gremio. In addition, the team has lost 3 games in a row, which gives the rest of the teams confidence to fight for the top of the table.
Palmeiras has been unable to take advantage of this drop in performance, as they also lost on matchday 24. However, Gremio won again and is now on the table’s edge.
Bragantino is still in great form after winning for the third time in their last four games, as are Atlético Mineiro and Fortaleza. Finally, Coritiba and América-MG seem to have resigned themselves and will most likely be two of the four relegated to the second division.

The day’s first match brought an excellent victory for Bragantino against America-MG by 2-0. There is no doubt that America is sinking further and further down the table while Bragantino continues to demonstrate its high level of play and ability to play under pressure.
The match started with the Red Bulls having all the possession of the ball, but it was not until the 37th minute when Jadson opened the scoring for the visiting team. América-MG did not respond during the match and only shot at its rival’s goal in 2 opportunities.
Finally, when the match was in its final seconds, Lucas Evangelista Santana de Oliveira scored the definitive 2-0 in minute 90+10′.
As a result, America-MG continues to sink into the bottom of the table, while Bragantino settled in fourth place with its second consecutive victory.

Goiás and Flamengo gave us one of the most boring matches of this 24th matchday of the Brasileirão Serie A, as the teams did not have the disposition to seek victory and, since halftime, we could see how they ‘settled’ for a draw.
Both the first and second halves of the match were marked by long possessions by Flamengo, but without generating any danger in the Goias area. So much so that, despite having 66% possession of the ball, Flamengo shot at goal on only 2 occasions.
On the other hand, Goias were no slouches either, as they had only 1 shot between the 3 posts in the 90 minutes played. The reality is that the match was very boring and, in the middle of the second half, there was dissatisfaction on the part of the home team’s fans, seeing that they did not propose anything on the field.
With this 0-0 draw, ‘Goiasse’ remains in 15th place in the table, only 2 points above Santos in the relegation zone. Meanwhile, Flamengo drops to seventh place in the table, but they are still 3 points behind Gremio in third place.
Result: Goiás (0) – (0) Flamengo

Finally, we had a really interesting match between Corinthians and Botafogo, where the locals threw a blow on the table to defeat the leaders, Botafogo, who lost for the third consecutive time.
The match was intense from start to finish, as both teams went out to win. However, there is no doubt that the result and the victory of the Corinthians were conditioned by the expulsion of Fernando Marçal of Botafogo in the 23rd minute. From that moment on, Corinthians took advantage of its home and numerical superiority to hurt the tournament leaders.
However, it was not until minute 59 when Carlos Gilberto Nascimento Silva scored the goal, giving them the 1-0 victory.
Botafogo could only create danger in the rival area on two occasions. At the same time, the home team managed 5 shots on goal in 19 attempts.
After this victory, Corinthians climbed to the tenth position in the table. Botafogo lost for the third consecutive time and is now only 7 points ahead of Palmeiras.
Result: Corinthians (1) – (0) Botafogo
