Summary: International - Santos 1: 1 (Sport 1)

Atletico Mineiro came last night (Sunday) significantly closer to winning the Brazilian championship for the first time in 50 years, when they defeated Fluminense 1: 2 thanks to a pair of 35-year-old Holk.

The striker's second goal, the one that completed the turnaround for the table leader after falling behind in the first half, was the one that stole the show: Holk sent a huge free kick that left the Fluminense goalkeeper no chance and drove about 60,000 fans at the Mineirao Stadium in Blue Horizonte.

The player who has flourished again since returning to the Brazilian league, leading the goalscoring table with 17 conquests in addition to 7 assists in 33 appearances, celebrated the mighty goal in homage to Atletico Mineiro's all-time top scorer - Reinaldo.

Holk swung his fist at El Al as the team's former striker used to do somewhere in the 70s and 80s.



At the end of the game, Holk was interviewed by Atletico Mineiro's fan channel, where Reinaldo serves as commentator, and dedicated the cover to him: "I tried to wait for your celebration, I'm your fan too. I know how much you deserve to be an idol thanks to your history, what you did at this club and "Your character. Thank you for taking such good care of my family."

Reinaldo thanked Holk and told him he had already taken a place of honor among the greats in the club's history.

Only Flamengo, who are 11 points behind Atletico Mineiro, have a mathematical chance of preventing the leader from winning the championship.

A stumble by the South American champion in the next round will finally crown Holk's team, which can already smell the exciting win.
