O Corinthians beat Cuiabá 1-0 tonight (25), at Arena Pantanal, in the 29th round of the Brazilian Championship. The breather against relegation was scored by Romero and guaranteed coach Mano Menezes’ first victory.
The two teams had few clear chances in the match. When a draw seemed the most likely path, Romero took advantage of Gil’s aerial play and confirmed the three points.
In the first half, Corinthians had more control of the game. In the final stage, Cuiabá imposed a stronger pace, but it was Timão who managed to score the goal.
