GOL RELÂMPAGO DO BUGRE
Corinthians couldn’t even feel the first minutes of the game, because at 58 seconds Guarani opened the scoring. Bruno Michel left on the right side, served Diogo Mateus who was open and crossed to the second stick, the Corinthian defender duo, formed by Balbuena and Gil, hit head, and Bruninho appeared free to dominate and touch on Cássio’s exit to open the scoreboard for Bugre. The Campinas team had already done something similar against Santos, in the second round, when they scored their second goal against Peixe in a few seconds of the second half – in addition to having scored the first with five minutes on that occasion, in the Earring of Gold of the Princess.
A minute later, Guarani almost doubled in an escape on the right with Richard Rios, who, when he reached the offensive middle, opted for the finish, which didn’t come out with much force, but forced Cássio to jump in the right corner to hold on.
CORINTHIANS JOIN THE GAME
From 10 minutes into the first half, Corinthians entered the game. First with a finish by Renato Augusto, at the entrance to the area, which forced the opposing goalkeeper, Maurício Kozlinski, to palm. Four minutes later, the archer Bugrino shone again, defending a point-blank finish by Róger Guedes, at the entrance to the small area. Guedes tried again a short time later, with a submission that went out, leading to danger.
MAYCON IS HURT
Near the 30th minute of the first half, Maycon felt the posterior region of his left thigh after accompanying Bruno Michel on the right side. The midfielder collapsed on the lawn and the Corinthian players automatically asked for the replacement of the player, who gave way to Roni. He will certainly undergo exams in the coming days, but he will hardly play the classic against São Paulo, on Sunday (29).
TIÃO TAKES A DRAW AT THE END OF THE FIRST HALF…
After being in danger a few times, after the 10 minutes of the game, and taking the reins of the game, Corinthians found the tie still in the first half, but already in stoppage time. Róger Guedes took advantage of a cross from Renato Augusto on the left. Before, Fagner had made a great reversal from the left to the left-handed sector. It was Guedes’ third goal this season, he is already Timão’s top scorer in 2023.
…AND TURNS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SECOND
Corinthians returned to the second half controlling the game and quickly turned the match around. Six minutes into the final stage, Timão exchanged passes until the ball reached Giuliano, who had entered the break, replacing Du Queiroz. The number 20 received it on the right side, crossed, Yuri Alberto deflected in the middle of the area, and the round was left to Fábio Santos. The left-back dived and put it in the opposite foot of goalkeeper Kozlinski.
CANTILLO FEELS AT THE END
Living a curse in the medical department since the beginning of the season, Corinthians had one more problem at the end of the game. Cantillo, who had entered in the 27th minute, felt the posterior region of his right thigh, in the 43rd minute of the final stage, after kicking a ball forward. Like Maycon, the Colombian should be evaluated in the next few days, but he is worried about the weekend’s classic Majestic.
