Thigh goes strong for game of life
An absurd expulsion strengthens Coritiba for the most important game of the season. It is with the same dose of surrender and indignation that he had against Fluminense that Verdão needs to enter the field in Colombia, Wednesday (27). It is like the game of life that the team must face the duel against the current owner of America.
With one less during the entire match against Flu, the determination and unity in the face of injustice balanced the game and made the team play a good role even if they were behind on the scoreboard. If he had less possession of the ball, Coxa finished more, exchanged more passes, tried more crosses, disarmed more than the opponent. He looked for a tie, he could have turned, all with one less man on the field.
At Atanasio Girardot, on Wednesday, Coritiba will encounter a more qualified opponent and immense pressure from the stands. Only surrender, union and indignation within each athlete can make the match the same. The match against Flu strengthens the team from Paraná for the decisive confrontation.
Atlético Nacional is not the champion of America for nothing, the team is qualified and extremely well trained. He does exactly what he needs on the pitch and is treacherous like few teams. If pressure is used, sometimes the team gets rid of the ball and offers it to the opponent just waiting for the moment to attack directly in the jugular. Therefore, patience is a key word against verdaguas.
For Coritiba, the absence of Nery Bareiro is a point to regret. Due to its good recent presentations, but mainly due to its international experience, the embezzlement is great. Coxa must rely on some pillars, such as Edinho, Juan, González, Kazim and Kléber. Playing across the continent, in the knockout phase, experience can be worth more than quality. (* Juan will also be embezzled, and another heavy embezzlement).
In Colombia, Alviverde can play the game of its history. Only with the experience of its pillars, the delivery, union and indignation seen before Fluminense, the team can make the confrontation equal. Thus, the vacancy would be open. Only with a lot of delivery will the team be able to play a zero error game and return to Curitiba once again with a historic classification in hand. An unfair expulsion may have changed everything.
