Isolated leader of the Mineiro Championship, O Atlantic back on the field this Thursday to maintain 100% utilization. After winning the first five matches in the competition, the Rooster will visit the Caldense, at the Ronaldo stadium, in Poos de Caldas. In the game that starts at 17:30, the team from the interior try to win the third game against teams from the capital in the State.
There were 12 days without games due to the stoppage of the competition due to the purple wave of the coronavirus pandemic. The time was important for coach Cuca to get to know the cast more and to implant a little of his style in the team.
“Two weeks of training with the new coach. We felt very good, we had already been working on the physical part a little bit in the previous week, also some collective work. Now we will be able to play on Thursday against Caldense, back to an official match, and always try to improve and adapt the reality of the new coach so that everyone can follow a good path ”, said defender Junior Alonso.
In 1st place in Mineiro, Galo leads the main statistics of the competition: best attack, with 15 goals, three times more than America, Athletic, Tombense and Pouso Alegre; best defense alongside Coelho, with two goals conceded; and top scorer – Marrony hit the net three times in the tournament.
The Atlantic will have a number of absences for the match. In training on Wednesday morning, defender Rver complained of discomfort in the posterior region of his right knee. As a precaution, he stayed in Belo Horizonte to do strengthening work. Without the captain, Igor Rabello should be the starter.
Another absence is that of the steering wheel Jair. He stayed in Belo Horizonte to do physical work. Argentine Matas Zaracho should be his replacement, since Alan Franco and Dylan were not listed by the limit of foreigners allowed in a match of the Mineiro Championship.
Striker Diego Tardelli is already out in the Atlantic. The player suffered a small injury to his right thigh before the match against Patrocinense, for the 4th round, and is still not 100%.
In the fourth position, with eight points, Caldense obtained the two triumphs in the competition, exactly on top of the main rivals of the Rooster.
The highlight of Caldense in the victories was the center forward Amarildo, 22 years old. Against Cruzeiro, on March 3, in Mineiro, he received a throw from Bruno Oliveira, won in Ramon’s race and filled the op on goalkeeper Fbio’s exit. Against Amrica, on March 13, at Independência, he hit his left foot after Matheus Cavichioli rebounded in a cross ball by midfielder David Lazari.
If, on the one hand, the Veteran shone in the confrontations with opponents of the capital, on the other hand she was not able to overcome teams from the interior. In Poos de Caldas, the team coached by Marcus Paulo Grippi tied with Tombense (1 to 1) and Patrocinense (0 to 0). As a visitor, he lost to URT 3-1 at the Zama Maciel stadium in Patos de Minas.
