From area to area, Hernani gains space and importance at Atlético
Atlético won, but without making a big game against Botafogo at Arena da Baixada. The team even escaped a defeat that would be heavy for the team's confidence. The goalkeeper Santos was one of the outstanding figures of the game guaranteeing the result.
But if the final whistle, Hurricane scored three points, it was also because Hernani put a ball in Bota's net in the first minutes of the match. Another decisive goal by the Atletican midfielder, the highlight of the team in the Brazilian and which has been gaining space and importance in the team.
Appearing more in attack, the Atletican midfielder is becoming one of those good area-area midfielders. Already appears as top scorer of the Rubro-Negro in the Brasileirão, with four goals scored, alongside André Lima. Goals that are decisive. He scored the goal of the turn against São Paulo, at Morumbi, opened the scoring in the 2-0 victory against Grêmio, in Baixada, already in the final stage, and scored the unique goals of the matches against Flu and Bota. There are 12 points with direct participation of the player's goals.
In attack, the top scorer in the Brazilian Championship is still, from the current squad, who adds more finishes on target in the competition. It is also the second of the team with more correct turns, behind only the partner Otávio. In defense, it is the fourth that disarms the most, behind Otávio again and also the lateral Léo and Sidcley.
Hernani is gaining space in the team, is already an absolute midfielder and starts to dominate the sector both defending and attacking. From area to area, Atlético's game starts to pass through the midfielder's feet.
Against Botafogo, two points deserve to be highlighted in the game. The first, the result, of course. The second, the importance, once again, of Hernani, the great player of the Hurricane in the Brazilian so far.
