Figueirense ends season against Sport
The 2020 season comes to an end this Sunday (11) for the Figueirense. Downgraded in advance, Alvinegro only fulfills the table in the 38th round of the Serie A, just like he did against Fluminense. Figueira will face Sport at 17h, in Ilha do Retiro.
In the last round, Figueirense beat Fluminense 1-0 after a long fast. The club is in 18th position with 37 points. Sport, on the other hand, drew 1-1 with América-MG and ranks 16th with 44 points. Pernambucans still struggle to remain in the elite.
Goodbyes in Figueira
Sunday's match will be the last of some at the club. Goalkeeper Gatito Fernández, for example, is already agreed with Botafogo for 2017 and will bid farewell. Already strikers Lins and Rafael Moura, absent in the last training sessions, do not even go to the match. He-Man claimed not to be "well psychologically" due to the accident with Chapecoense's plane. Coach Marquinhos Santos confirmed the team that will enter the field and also mirrored Jorge Sampaoli's Chile team.
”The team is the one of the week, for me there is no morning team, change the last one now. I charge what was worked. And it doesn't mean three defensive midfielders and three defenders. We use Sampaoli-style Chile training. The 3-3-1-3. So we have been working that way, ”said coach Alvinegro.
Tribute to Chapecoense
Figueirense will enter the field with a special shirt, which will have the Chapecoense symbol on the chest and the names of the victims of the plane crash that killed 71 people, including players, Chapecoense directors, journalists and crew, ten days ago.
Figueira can set last draw
The result of the match between Sport and Figueirense can define the last relegated to Serie B. This is because if Sport wins and Vitória does not lose, Internacional will be relegated. Defender Dudu says "don't care" about such a fact.
”We go there to seek victory. We know it will be difficult, but I don't care what will happen, if Inter will get rid, if Sport will fall, what matters is the three points there ”, said full-back Alvinegro.
