Róger Guedes’ second season at Corinthians began with friction between him and coach Vítor Pereira and important games in Libertadores as a reserve, but he arrives in September in a completely different way.
The number 10 currently leads three statistics for the season. He was a starter in the last six games and should remain so on Sunday, at 16:00 (Brasília time), against São Paulo, in Morumbi, for the Brazilian Championship.
With 11 goals scored, he is the team’s top scorer of the year. There were eight in the Brasileirão alone, which makes him the team’s top scorer in the competition.
In addition, he leads the squad in terms of goal participation (15), as he also has four assists. Renato Augusto, with ten, is right behind (four goals and six passes for his teammates).

Alongside Du Queiroz, the 25-year-old forward was also the one who played the most games in 2022: there are 50. Timão played 56 games in 2022.
In minutes, he is only behind goalkeeper Cássio, who has played 49 games and played 4,726 minutes with the alvinegra shirt this season. Róger Guedes has 3,806, while Du has 3,748.

A top scorer for Timão in the year, Guedes surpassed the ten goals scored by Jô in 2021. He is now trying to surpass the 12 goals scored by Vagner Love in 2015 and the 15 that Gustagol achieved in the same year.
Before, in 2018, the top scorers of the year were Romero (12 goals) and Jadson (15). In recent years, the most difficult mark for Róger Guedes to pursue is that of Jô, who scored 25 goals in 2017.
