Despite their race and past play, Paulo Sau and Luis Castro – Physicians Flamengo and Botafogo who meet each other this Sunday, at 11 a.m., in Brasília – watching football and managing their different teams. While the alvinegro enjoys a team with two defenders, a pair of wingers and attackers from the side looking for a defensive one, the red-and-black bets on the idea with three defenders and two wingers, with Gabigol free to float forward, and midfielders. comes later. However, there are similarities between the two coaches: the importance of the midfielder on the pitch.
Patrick de Paula: Do you want more followers? and Oyama is for Botafogo what Andreas Pereira and João Gomes are for Flamengo. The first ones came up with a name tag, but they didn’t fall for the crowd. The cheaper option, the pair that follow better in the concept of two organizations in terms of defense and set up a team to fight.
“It is light. It is a turntable, it connects the base aisle to all the others. He is the rocket of the team. I look at the steering wheel in times of attack and defense – explains Luís Castro in an interview with “Bem, Amigos!”.
Initially, Patrick de Paula was hired as a visionary for the Botafogo group. The most expensive signing in club history (R $ 33 million), the athlete arrives with a star.
In the first match of the Brazilian Championship, against the Corinthians, it was the jersey 8 that played this role. In exchange for a counter-attack, he tried to get the ball in the foot of the defender when our offense failed and took part in a counter-attack. But Castro’s idea with Patrick did not go away. In the following contests, Luís Oyama was selected for the vacant position and combined with more energy and effort, a term commonly used by the Portuguese coach.
– I think my time is right at this stage that Botafogo is going through, a redevelopment. It was the moment of my life, my first Série A, ”Oyama told BotafogoTV.
If in last year’s B series, the jersey 55 played as a second midfielder, protected by a first midfielder, in the current team he is the one who covers defense, often playing as a head of area – at the defensive level, the Botafogo. play in a 4-1-4-1 strategy – but do not fail to appear in attack.
Since his arrival, Oyama has started in four alvinegro tournaments in Brasileirão – he was unable to play in the Copa do Brasil, while playing in a tournament for Mirassol. With an average of 80 minutes per game, he is the Botafogo player with the most competition, 14.
He said: “The whole support team has helped me a lot in developing various defenses, which I think is one that I have improved a lot, and committed to one thing,” he said.
At Flamengo, the heart of Andreas Pereira since the failure of the final Libertadores has become unbelievable. The 25-year-old Manchester United midfielder lost ground, lost production, and had to have his loan deal cut without Flamengo buying him for R $ 60 million. In this vacuum, João Gomes is growing and will soon renew his contract with Flamengo, with salary increases.
“There is a lot of volume in the game, with and without the ball. Very strong, the best we have as a midfielder in duels. With this model, the attitude of the players play we have, we need players with body, mind and commitment, “said Paulo Sousa, a 21-year-old son from Ninho.
In the Flamengo model, the Gomes provide minimal protection to the defender who creates the game in a 3-4-3 formation. However, it should be said more in the offensive line with midfielders and wingers.
Paulo Sousa said that “one thing that needs to be improved is the ability to go half-length”, see Paulo Sousa.
Coach Paulo Sousa must start the Gomes with Willian Arão, as Pablo must return to the squad. But, if on the one hand he has more defenders, Paulo Souza will be without Santos (with a hip injury) and Pedro (with pain in his right thigh).
