The Ba-Vi classic ended without winners and with the directions of the two teams complicated in the Copa do Nordeste, this Sunday (5). The game, which was decisive for both Bahia and Vitória, ended 1-1 at Arena Fonte Nova, in Salvador.
Disappointment marked the face of the home team’s fans, who booed the players as they left the field. A not-distant reality for the rival team, which did not have fans in the stadium, but is “in trouble”, because of the current poor performance.
The first goal of the match came eight minutes into the first half. After a beautiful launch by Thiago Lopes, Osvaldo came face to face with Marcos Felipe and scored for Vitória. In the last minute of the same time, Cauly made a good move with Matheus Bahia and crossed for Jacaré to tie for Bahia.
After that, the teams came back for a second half more willing to attack and ended up giving up more spaces. However, there was no quality to make the chances count, and not even 5 minutes of added time were enough to change the scoreboard.
For Bahia, the next duel in the Copa do Nordeste will only be on March 14, in Teresina, against Fluminense (PI).
