Pure show. On the one hand the super organized football dell’Atalanta, on the other the one of the Palmeiras based on great individuality. The result was a marvelous finale, which fully respected the expectations of the eve. And in the end they won the Brazilians, a goal machine able to manage the games like adults. The personality shown by some paulist players in the middle of the pitch is really impressive. Pedro Lima De Barros stands out from the crowd, he is the author of the decisive goal both in the final and in the semi-finals, skilled both in the management of the ball and in the insertions, but there are many guys of Mr. Pereira who showed off: it is no coincidence that Brazilians have made up of prizes, taking home the title of best goalkeeper (Martins), of the best player of the final (Igor Gabriel Furtado Gondim) and of the best player of the tournament (Ruan Ribeiro Rodrigues). But even among the Atalanta ranks there were no names to be scored on the notebook: Samuel Giovane (best midfielder) and captain Giorgio Scalvini (best defender) have impressed the insiders, like Alessio Rosa, centering from the safe future . For the record, the other prizes went Dillon Hoogerwerf, center of Ajax who has won both the trophy of top scorer (5 goals) and that of best striker, and his coach Nordin Wooter, elected best coach; the fair play prize, finally, went to the Belgians of the Genk.
Returning to the final, the start was all Brazilian brand. The Palmeiras immediately put the Atalanta in trouble thanks to the speed of its three strikers. Rodegari, always careful, foiled a couple of threats but he could not anything at 8 ‘on the strong and accurate shot of Igor Gabriel, freed in the area by a rebound and cold on goal. Paulista advantage and race that seems to get on the most congenial tracks for Palmeiras. Instead, Atalanta reacts to the big, begins to take the field and at 25 ‘is the deserved draw with Rosa, good to crush the perfect cross from the left by Perego. On 1-1 the Bergamo try to crush on the accelerator taking advantage of a moment of tarnishing Brazilians, but we go to rest on the result of parity.
Upon returning to the field, the Palmeiras starts again and takes the reins of the game back into its own hands, becoming dangerous in a couple of circumstances. The Atalanta seems to stand the impact, but at 10 ‘on the action of corner comes the goal that will prove decisive then: the cross from the right generates a pinball in the area, Pedro Lima De Barros is the quickest of all and with a right powerful beats the innocent Rodegari. The Bergamo people try in every way to put things right, but the result does not change anymore. And at the triple whistle of Michael Fabbri of Ravenna, Palmeiras is the champion of the third edition of “We Love Football”.
