Vitor Pereira and his coaching staff divided the training into three parts, as reported by the club’s staff. In the first, work on marking pressure and possession of the ball in a reduced space. Then, a confrontation activity and, finally, repetition of set pieces.

Just without Maycon, with a broken foot, and Paulinho, recovering from knee surgery, Vitor Pereira has practically his entire squad at his disposal. The coach, however, no longer has Willian, a player who is leaving Corinthians.

With his departure, the one who can gain space on the left wing is Róger Guedes. Timão’s number 9 has said, several times, that this is his preferred position. Corinthians is also running out of time to find a replacement for Willian.
