With decisive game, JMalucelli hopes to qualify for the quarterfinals
After a draw in the first game of the round of 16, the return game promises strong emotions for JMalucelli e São Bento, who define who will pass to the next stage, starting this Saturday at 15hoo, at the Walter Ribeiro Stadium in Sorocaba.
After training in the morning and lunch, the JMalucelli team prepared to travel to Sorocaba on Thursday (18) to face São Bento, the game will be valid for the return match of the round of 16 of the final Brazilian Championship from Serie D. As already said, the JMalucelli coach, Luciano Gusso, bet on a balanced game, since the two teams showed a very similar campaign during the championship, so it intends to maintain the same lineup of the first game that happened in Curitiba, when Jotinha and São Bento tied for the score of 1 to 1.
To guarantee access to the quarter-finals, JMalucelli needs to win by two goals or more, while São Bento will probably play the same way they played the first game in Curitiba, in a defensive way, taking advantage of the counterattacks, and will not give so easily the goals to the rival, who will play away from home.
Playing at home and with the support of the fans, São Bento should confidently enter the game in Sorocaba, even without the coach Paulo Roberto, who ended up being suspended in the first leg after some complaints made to the judge, however, players like Giovanni and Rogério are likely to return to play after improving from some injuries. The team also made some promotions on tickets for Saturday's game, aiming to bring as many people as possible to the CIC Stadium.
