Inter defeated Coritiba 3-0 last Friday night. Despite the elastic score provided by Mano Menezes’ team, it is important to emphasize that Daniel played a fundamental role in the plot of the match. The Colorado archer performed a miracle three minutes into the first half after Léo Gamalho’s submission.
Criticized by the Colorado fans, as well as by the press, Daniel is going through a period of ups and downs in the red-and-white goal. However, even with constant failures, the archer often saves Mano’s team, something that happened in the duel against the white thigh team.
The pitch took place shortly after the kickoff. Despite Inter dominating the match, the visitors were the first to scare. Alef Manga received a great pass and took advantage of Thauan Lara’s slip. The striker invaded the area and crossed to Léo Gamalho, who finished very well. However, Daniel palmed and had the help of the post to get the ball out.
After that, Inter pressed until they opened the scoring with Taison, in the 20th minute. The shirt 7 took advantage of a great move by Pedro Henrique and scored his first goal in the Brasileirão. With the favorable score, Mano’s team had no difficulties to expand and scored twice more, with Alexandre Alemão and Edenilson.
With the victory, the team defended by Daniel reached 24 points in the Brasileirão and provisionally took third place. The next match will be next Tuesday, in a game valid for the round of 16 of the Sudamericana.
