Copa Kia do Brasil Semi Final 1st Legs

Vitória 0-1 Atlético Goianiense
Grêmio 4-3 Santos

Atlético-GO took a valuable semi final lead in the Copa Kia do Brasil after a stunning away victory at Vitória. The newly promoted side are on the brink of a final appearance after a Rodrigo Tiuí goal ten minutes after half time gave them victory. Meanwhile the other semi final could go any way after a goal fest at the Olímpico Monumental. Santos are favourites to win this competition and started strongly as two goals from André put them in control in the opening twenty minutes against Grêmio. The hosts though stunned the visitors with four goals inside 17 second half minutes. Borges reduced the defecit on 58 minutes and his second six minutes later levelled matters. Jonas then put Grêmio ahead midway through the second half and when Borges completed his hat trick with fifteen minutes to go the Tricolor were in the driving seat. Santos though pressed for a way back into the game and pulled a goal back seven minutes from time through Robinho to make an interesting return next week at the Vila Belmiro.

The return legs take place next Wednesday night. We suspect both games will be available live and online through various online betting sites. CONMEBalls recommends
