Paysandu visits Vila Nova at 7 pm this Saturday (19), at Serra Dourada Stadium, in the decision for the Copa Verde title. After a goalless draw at Curuzu, Bicolor needs to win away from home to lift the tournament Cup. The champion qualifies directly for the third phase of the Copa do Brasil – which guarantees a prize of R$ 1.9 million.

The competition at the end of the year is the last chance for the Boogeyman to lift a trophy in 2022. The team from Pará started the season losing the State final to rival Remo and ended with bitter failure in the quadrangular of Series C of the Brazilian Championship, saying goodbye to access. On the eve of deciding the Copa Verde, Bicolor begins to lose important parts of the squad.

First, the journalist Jorge Nicola said, last Wednesday (16), that midfielder José Aldo is agreed with Ituano, and should be announced by Galo after the end of the Copa Verde. Now, another situation drew attention at Curuzu. One of the highlights of Papão in the season, striker Robinho appeared in a list of reinforcements released on social networks of Botafogo-SP, this Friday (18).

The 27-year-old player will reinforce Pantera in the Series B dispute. Unlike Paysandu, the team from São Paulo advanced in the quadrangular of the third division and won access to the Premiership. Robinho’s announcement by the Ribeirão Preto club takes place on the day before the Copa Verde grand final. He says goodbye to the Boogeyman this Saturday (19), after the decision.

In 39 games with the two-tone shirt, Robinho scored five times this season. And he has played a decisive role recently. The striker scored a goal and provided an assist in the first leg of the Copa Verde semifinal, away from home against São Raimundo-AM. On his way back, he scored one of the goals in Papão’s 3-0 victory.
