With the victory at home, Timão reached the same 25 points as Palmeiras, who play a classic against São Paulo next Monday (20) at the Morumbi stadium. For Esmeraldino, the setback meant remaining with 14 points, very close to the Z4.
In a very truncated match, in which Goiás had the clear objective of denying spaces for the home team, Corinthians won thanks to a goal scored in a penalty kick, by side Fábio Santos in the 33rd minute of the first half.
Timão returns to the field in the competition next Saturday (25), when they play classic with Santos. A day later Goiás receive Cuiabá at Serrinha stadium.
