It continues to be too early to know whether or not Fernando Lazaro will probably be one of many nice coaches in Corinthians historical past, nor whether or not he’ll go additional than his predecessor. But it’s already legitimate to say that in one match the present coach of Corinth proved Vitor Pereira wrong.

After Timao was crushed by Atletico-GO in Goiania in the primary leg of final 12 months’s Copa Brasil on July 28, Vitor mentioned strikers Roger Guedes and Yuri Alberto couldn’t play collectively. And the primary time Lazaro had the duo at his disposal, he not solely used them however was chargeable for all of the targets of Corinthian’s 3-0 win over Agua Santa for the second spherical of the Paulista Championship. The match happened final Wednesday (18), on the Neo Química Arena.

According to the Portuguese coach, when Roger and Yuri work collectively, the crew has not been in a position to shield the corridors. The Portuguese, in flip, insisted on the identical system of play, 4-3-3, with out making variations, each in the match itself and between one engagement and one other. So there was certainly an issue with recomposing on the left aspect.

With Fernando Lazaro, Corinthians modified the formation in the sport itself, however more often than not they adopted a 4-4-2 checkered. Thus, the ahead pair is freer up entrance and two midfielders turn into chargeable for closing down the wings. Against Agua Santa, for instance, the central quartet began with Maicon working as a defensive midfielder in entrance of the line of defense, Du Queiroz open on the fitting, Renato Augusto on the left and Adson working extra centrally, inside but additionally floating to assist across the edges.

You cannot cover it, sure, Timao had some issues in the defensive finish, primarily on the left, however extra as a result of difficulties of Fabio Santos and Renato Augusto in executing that serve than the duty of Roger Guedes to get again to mark. In the order of the system, what was requested of the quantity 10, he did: a aim. And not only one, two. Both relied on assists from their strike accomplice Yuri Alberto, who additionally as soon as made his mark.

Nor are you able to be a hypocrite and assault Vitor Pereira as a result of he left Corinthians in the circumstances everyone knows. I preserve that it will be nice for him to remain – even with the poor atmosphere with the gamers being confirmed every single day. But the Portuguese understands so much about soccer and has already made it clear that he has not applied every part he would have preferred in Timao, which might occur in 2023. With pre-season, planning from the bottom up and with information of Brazilian soccer, his schedule and different difficulties, I consider that the individuals’s crew can go far in 2023. But it’s a indisputable fact that the work of the Portuguese coach, right now in Flamengo, additionally had errors. And considered one of them thought that Róger Guedes and Yuri Alberto couldn’t play collectively.

And in the way in which Fernando Lazaro proved Vitor Pereira wrong and you can – even ought to – play alongside Roger and Youri, Pereira could carry with him a warning for the present Corinthians coach: the significance of taking part in like Corinthians when there’s adversity. The greatest second for the Lusitanian on the helm of Timão was between June and the start of July when, even with 10 absences, he managed to remain in the highest crew of the Brasileirão and qualify for the spherical of 16 of the Libertadores and the Copa do Brasil. Lazaro, for his half, had losses felt on his debut, akin to these of Renato Augusto, Adson, Yuri Alberto and newcomers Mateus Bidu and Angel Romero, whereas Alvinegro’s aspect didn’t play towards Red Bull Bragantino final Sunday (15).

It is obvious that Corinthians change their place after they have names like Renato Augusto, Yuri Alberto and Roger Guedes taking part in collectively, however it is very important stress that the trio won’t all the time be accessible collectively, primarily as a result of Renato is now extra grownup and wishes particular consideration the bodily half. And at this very second, Fernando Lazaro should be a little bit Vitor Pereira and know the best way to reinvent himself to place, if mandatory, a truckload of gamers in the defensive system, simply to ensure victory and qualification. It will probably be vital for the present coach to know the best way to play not solely with the complete squad, but additionally with the obstacles that can generate limitations throughout the season.
