In a duel for the 33rd round of the Brasileirãoo Bahia suffered a heavy blow in the fight against relegation. At Fonte Nova, the Steel Squadron received the Cuiabá and was defeated by a resounding 3-0.

With the result, Dourado won again after two rounds, while the home team lost the second in a row and remain tied on points with the cruisethe team that opens the Z-4, at this moment.

Bahia still stumbled again at home after three consecutive home victories, in addition to conceding goals again at Fonte Nova as well.

As soon as the ball rolled, Dourado was the one who took the initiative and dominated the actions in the first half. Until, at 19 minutes, he had a penalty scored in his favor.

Clayson launched into the area for Deyversonwho finished with the free goal, but full-back Camilo Cándido, with his hand, deflected the ball to the baseline.

The striker took responsibility for the charge and opened the scoring, scoring his 11th goal for Dourado in the Brazilian Championship and ending a “fast” that had already lasted five games.

In the final stage, Bahia had another player sent off, but was “saved” by VAR. Derik started towards the area, but was pulled back by Vitor Hugo, who immediately received a red card from the referee.

However, the VAR recommended reviewing the move on the monitor due to a possible touch by Derik, which was confirmed and, as a result, the red to the Tricolor defender was cancelled.

In the 32nd minute, in a fulminant counterattack, Isidro Pitta, who replaced Deyverson, extended the lead for Dourado, who scored again, in extra time, with Ronald, who closed the score in the capital of Bahia.
