In the second half, on minute 11, Thiago Silva scored, but the little flag was offside and canceled the move. The pressure continued and at 25, Marks took advantage of a corner kick and went up to head and tie the game. Venezuela lost attack power and Brazil started to scare more.

At 36, the referee scored a penalty when Gabigol was shot down in the area. The Flamengo player went to charge and converted, turning the score around. In stoppage time, Antony made the third and closed the game 3-1. With 27 points, the team remains at the top of the table and Venezuela remains at the bottom, with just five points in ten games.
