The duel between two teams with a lot of tradition in Brazilian football started very balanced, with a lot of dispute in the midfield and no chances of goals for either side. The first great opportunity of the match was for Guarani, in the 16th minute, with Júlio César. The striker took a risk from the middle and forced Thiago Rodrigues to make a big intervention.
The cruzmaltino archer returned to work the next minute, this time after Diogo Mateus shot. The game continued without strong emotions and only heated up again in the final half of the first half. In the 34th minute, Gabriel Pec crossed, Figueiredo played in the air and Andrey Santos finished wide.
