It wasn’t this Sunday (21) that coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo won in his third spell at Corinthians. At Maracanã, defender Léo Pereira scored with a header in added time and secured the Flamengo win 1-0.

With the result, the newly hired coach reached four defeats in six games, in addition to two draws. Despite the negative sequence, Timão has no time to regret. This Wednesday (24), at 21:30, the team will visit Argentinos Juniors in Libertadores.

Due to the setbacks at Neo Química Arena, Róger Guedes and company need a victory to stay alive in the fight for classification in Group E. At the moment, Alvinegro has only three points, in 3rd place, behind the Argentine opponent, with seven, and from Independiente del Valle, from Colombia, with six. The bottom of the key is Liverpool-URU, with just one point.

After the decisive match in Argentina, Corinthians becomes the key to the Brasileirão Série A. Timão ends the 7th round in the relegation zone, in 17th place, with five points. If Cuiabá defeats Cruzeiro today (22), it will push the team from São Paulo to 18th place. Next Sunday (28), at 4 pm, Luxemburgo and his team receive Fluminense. It is worth remembering that the last duel against Tricolor das Laranjeiras in Itaquera ended in a 2-0 victory in Rio, with two goals by top scorer Germán Cano.
