O Guild Felipão has been trying to recover in the brazilian to exit the relegation zone. In the round of 11 am this Sunday, 12, the team received the Ceará, in the Arena, and scored 2-0, goals from Diego Souza e little ferreira. The result still leaves Tricolor Gaucho in Z4, but in 18th place with 19 points, just three behind São Paulo, the first team out of the ‘confusion zone’. The game was of greater possession of the ball by the visitors, but Grêmio managed to be more effective. On minute 43, Diego Souza climbed higher than the Ceará defense and headed for the goal. In extra time, Ferreirinha received it at the edge of the area, cut to the right and submitted it in a cross, increasing the score to 2-0.

In the second stage, the game slowed down, both because of the strong heat and the lack of well-built plays. Only at 38, Grêmio was in danger with Borja, but the ball went out. The next confrontation between the gauchos will be against the Flamengo for the Brazil’s Cup, in the middle of the week. Ceará, in turn, will attempt rehabilitation against the Santos next Saturday, the 18th, in the next round of the Nacional.
