The first half of the game was a little underwhelming. Already guaranteed in the next phase of Copinha, Corinthians entered the field with an alternative team and, even with this formation, had the best chances of scoring in the first stage.
Despite this, the team from the capital of São Paulo did not manage to turn this larger volume into a goal and the first 45 minutes of the match ended with 0-0 on the scoreboard.
In the second stage, the game slowed down even more. Without Corinthians or São José being able to maintain the level of performance, and with many errors in the attacking field on both sides, the duel became dragged out most of the time. In this way, for having more ball, the best chances were for the team of Parque São Joege and in one of them the goal was scored.
In the 29th minute, after a move from the left, the goalkeeper missed badly and Pedro appeared on the second post to push it towards the goal and make it 1-0.
Keep it here. In a few years we will be able to say that we saw Pedro’s first goal in Copinha!pic.twitter.com/UdpYHb8iFT

After the goal, the game slowed down again. With no strength to look for the comeback, São José was left on the field and Corinthians started to control the rhythm. In extra time, Geovane scored the second, in penalty kick, and closed the scoring.
