Atlético-GO managed to breathe in the Brasileirãolast Saturday (11), against the Fluminense. In a victory away from home, at the Maracanã stadium, the team coached by Jorginho left the relegation zone and is now in 15th place. If on the pitch things start to flow, off the pitch the Dragon will still have many issues to resolve.

However, the South Americananother dispute on the radar of Goiás, has been giving headache.

With Antônio Accioly unable to host the games, due to audience limitationO Serra Dourada should be the team’s home in the remainder of the competition. The Dragon even already knows that he must pay a fine of 48 thousand dollars, something around R$ 245 thousand.
