Atletico Mineiro has already played five matches in the Minero Championship and won them all. I hardly have any opposition in this competition. On Friday, Gallo Coimbra faced a junior team from Mina Gerais in Mineirao and Ignacio Martin Fernandez made his official debut. The former River played as a left midfielder and was essential to defeat his struggling side in the first minutes of the match against Coimbra. But after 27 minutes, everything changed thanks to Nacho. After overtaking by Chile Vargas and a precise pass to the penalty spot, Nacho entered from the left and called his head, leaving the opposing goalkeeper without any chances. Atletico Mineiro won 1-0 with a goal from a talented midfielder.
Minutes later, in 36 of the first half, Gallo increased the score through Igor Rapella who, after a corner kick by Nacho Fernandez to perfection, won in front and with a header he managed to score 2 to 0.. But the rate of occurrence of the number 26 did not end there, when the first half was about to end and after going to play the ball in the area that was about to exit, Nacho did not give up due to loss and, in a childish manner, was dropped by a Coimbra defender before the ball came out: a penalty for Gallo that Hulk changed into a goal.
Nacho also played a very good second half and had the opportunity to score another goal, in the 31st minute with a free kick close to his side and the Coimbra goalkeeper was alert and sent the ball into the corner. From a very similar position, the midfielder turned a superb goal against Talires as he played with the sacred mantle. Fernandez’s first move at Atletico Mineiro was very positive and if he continues that way, he will win the hearts of the Gallo fans just as he won the hearts of River.
