Reserve, top scorer, Joe is going well and cementing his position as Corinthians bartender in recent matches | Corinthians

Joe Bitter Reserve Bank of Corinthians There are five games, but he has the team artillery in 2021, with nine goals, as well as a waiter, with six assists. Incidentally, the striker was decisive in the recent victories against Chapecoense and Fortaleza, both 40 minutes into the final stage.

This season, even an experienced striker is the player most directly involved in goals.

Most recently against Fortaleza, last Saturday. Joe pivoted for Cantello to open the scoring against Ceará, 41 minutes into the final, in a play that also featured Roger Geddes.

Of his last five matches off the bench, in three matches Joe has lost his position to Guedes as the man most forward in attack. In the last of them, Renato Augusto was the shirt 9’s turn, unlike those who argue that the midfielder should be the team’s brainchild in his field.

Against Chapecoense, Joe also entered the final stage of the match, 29 minutes into the final stage, and was crucial to the positive result. At 54, Edson hit a corner kick, which was cleared by Joe, and Guedes completed it at the back of the net.

– In the second half patience began to happen. We had to develop it. On the other hand, we had a strong, strong, qualified opponent, and if you keep making mistakes, you give your opponent more chances. It was a great virtue for the team, the changes were done well, they strengthened the team, but the virtue goes back to the athletes, on the field. The full stadium helped us a lot – said Sylvinho, not mentioning Joe by name, but referring to the changes made to the team.

The coach, in both matches, was criticized for the team’s starting lineup and team performance in the final stage, and twice managed to correct the team based on changes made between the first half and the end of the duels. Jô perfectly fits into this role, along with, for example, Cantillo.

In the season, Joe has played 44 games and is close to completing 3,000 minutes on the field. He is Corinthians’ second-best scorer in Brazil, behind Roger Guedes, with 16 shots in 24 matches (Guedes has 12 shots in 17 duels), according to Footstats.

In artillery, Gustavo Mosquito is directly behind with six goals and Guedes with five. In assists, next after Joe is Fabio Santos, with four.

With Joe at their disposal, Corinthians return to the field on Wednesday, to face leaders Atlético MG, at 7pm (GMT), in Mineirao, in Belo Horizonte, in round 31 of the competition.
