In this Wednesday’s Round, all of the favorites advanced.
But what could not be expected is the tightness who Corinthians spent, playing at home against Avenida, the modest opponent coming from Rio Grande do Sul.
For those who see the score, winning by Corinthians to 4-2, can imagine that the score was built with tranquility and without problems.
You would have to warn these supporters that the team was lost early in the match and lived the 46 minutes of the First Half losing by 2-0 and, if it was not the constant support of their fans, it would not turn and win the game.
Where Nida, the nickname of the Avenida, had the chance to extend the score with the ball hit the post and a counter-attack face-to-face with Cassio.
Corinthians presented many individual errors, especially in the Inicial Half. Errors that Carille will need to have a lot of patience to work them and ideas that the coach will have to rethink. As example the both defenders, Henrique and Manoel. He can’t insist this, principally when Marlon, the young defender, is looking space in the team. Yesterday, Marlon was not even called into the game.
“The incredible Corinthians come-from-behind” was built thanks to the fragility of your opponent, if Corinthians had faced a stronger rival, scarcely Timão would conquer the result.
On the positive side of the history, the Corinthians reaction power was impressive. Despite being defeated by 2-0, the team showed willingness to turn the game and won.
For comparison, I don’t imagine that São Paulo, for example, would have this claw and force to try the comeback.
Another important factor to register, Carille’s daring to put Vagner Love in place of Ralf. Seeing the necessity to put a more offensive team he did it, without hesitation.
Even with difficulties and problems to organize this team since the begin of the season, Corinthians stay alive in all competitions of this First Semester.
But next Tuesday is the most important test, against Racing from Argentina. Let’s see how the alvinegro team will behave.
