Corinthians and International played a great game in Brazilianbut for those who expected another miracle from Victor Pereira in Timão, he was deceived. The two rivals played a disputed match last Sunday, 5th, at Neo Química Arenabut they stayed in the tie of 2 to 2 and squandered the chance to assume the vice-leadership of the Brazilian Championship.

After the ball stopped rolling for Corinthians and Internacional, Vítor Pereira gave a press conference and evaluated the game. The coach countered the changes he made to the team for the match and highlighted that he cannot perform “miracles” at every opportunity. According to the professional, the captain lacked options, who lost Renato Augusto, Adson, Fagner and Rafael Ramos for the national classic.

I cannot perform miracles. Every now and then one happens, but it cannot be that way systematically. The adversary is putting loads and we have no load to place. Maycon, Paulinho, Raul, Adson (outside)… this is the reality. Who doesn’t want to see, don’t see. I’m sad, today we missed the opportunity to come in second place. But for the second half we did, we didn’t deserve anything else“, he stated.

To give you an idea, Corinthians had eight absences for the match against Internacional. Vítor Pereira could not count on seven absences due to injury and they were: Robson, Raul Gustavo, Lucas Piton, Maycon, Renato Augusto, Adson and Júnior Moraes. Furthermore, Du Queiroz got the third yellow card in the penultimate round and also failed to be on the field against Colorado.

To play against Internacional it is important to put pressure on them, they have good players, they have quick solutions at the front, they have solutions in the middle to play. In the first half we managed to pressure them, we pressured the man with the ball, we pressured high. While the team was “pressing” and didn’t let the opponent play, they attacked spaces and we were able to make it 3 to 1“, followed before completing.

Then we had Fagner’s problem at half-time, who had to leave for Rafael to enter. We decided to go to the second half with the same team, we explained at half-time that it was to keep pressing, we couldn’t go back, otherwise they would start playing. And then we got to a stage, with 10 minutes, we realized that the team couldn’t press. This is for everyone who criticizes“, he continued before finishing.

Forward solutions: we had Vital and Giovane. Internacional starts to have more load, speed, more people with offensive characteristics. To play in the middle we had: Cantillo, Roni and Xavier. Forward, Giovane, a boy, and Vital, who has come from a long stop. Out of this game: Renato Augusto, Maycon, Du Queiroz, not to mention Paulinho, Adson, Piton, Raúl. What are we talking about here? From a second part that, at the moment when we need to refresh the team… The point is that the solutions we had in this game were these“, he added.
