Atlético-MG lost a good chance to stay in the lead of the Brasileirão by wasting many goals against Bahia. He went ahead and totally dominated the game, but he sinned too much in the submissions and saw the brave rival look for the turn. With 3 to 1, the Bahians leave the relegation zone. Striker Gilberto left the bench to be the hero of the night.
The miners dominated, pressed for most of the game, but, without capriciousness, let out precious points in a game in which they controlled the match for 65 minutes.
