Coritiba vs Ceara | see what the real time was like
The alvinegra team faced difficulties to impose rhythm and pierce the defensive block of Coritiba. Despite having greater possession of the ball (65×35), he could not infiltrate and sought to attack the Coxa Branca team with shots from outside the area and crosses in the area in order to find Jô or Mendoza.
While Ceará kept possession, Coritiba explored passing errors and spaces in the white-and-white marking. Warley was in charge of pulling the counterattacks, as well as Nathanael on the right side. In the 29th minute, Alef Manga received a cross in the area and retreated for Fabricio Daniel to open the scoring at Couto Pereira.
Despite the disadvantage on the scoreboard, Ceará was dominated by apathy and lack of creativity. Richard Coelho, Richardson and Vina tried, but could not give rhythm or progress to the game of Alvinegro de Porangabuçu. At 49 minutes, Mendoza received on the right, cut to the middle and finished placed. The ball goes over Gabriel’s goal.
The alvinegra apathy persisted throughout the decisive stage. Lucho González’s team sought to accelerate, to give rhythm on the field, but found it difficult.
Striker Jô continued to be called in the area. On two occasions, he retreated to Mendoza and Vina, but submissions stopped at Gabriel.
In the 30th minute, Ceará equalized the score with Marcos Victor, after a free kick by Victor Luís. However, the referee, after checking the VAR, signaled the defender offside. Before, the tool had already annulled a penalty marking in favor of Coxa Branca signaled by Raphael Claus on the field.
