With a goal from Yago Pikachu at the end of the match, the Strength defeated Vitória 1-0 again, this time at Barradão, and advanced to the round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil. In a press conference after the elimination, the coach Fabiano Soares spoke about the number of goals lost by the team and minimized the situation, guaranteeing that in a moment the ball will start to enter.

“I think the most important thing, whoever plays, is to create goalscoring chances. I think we’re creating it, and at some point she’ll start to come in. The training is going well, the evolution is going well. I’m giving paths to the players, everyone has seen that we’re creating goalscoring chances. Sometimes it goes outside; in others, the goalkeeper stops, but we are on the way”, revealed the Vitória coach.

Vitória has been suffering several problems with its offensive power. In 18 matches this season, the team scored just 13 times, an average of less than one goal per game. In the three matches under the command of the new coach, Leão scored only in the duel against Manaus. In recent games, Guilherme Queiroz, Tréllez and Roberto have been tested in command of the attack, which has not yet been resolved. Together, they have only one goal this year.

Fabiano clarified that there were talks with director Rodrigo Pastana to hire new players for the Vitória team. One of the team’s most lacking positions is in the midfield sector, after midfielder Jadson left the Club. In addition, the coach guaranteed that if the team does not get the expected reinforcements, he will get options within the squad.

“We’ve been talking a lot. I eat [Rodrigo] Pastana [executivo de futebol do Vitória]Pastana with the president [Fábio Mota]. Of course I can’t say publicly, but I’ve already given my verdict on what I think Vitória needs. We also have great players here that can be used. If we can bring in backup, perfect. If not, we have parts here to resolve. We will have a strong team with or without signings. I am sure that we will have good results in Serie C”, added the coach.
