Undefeated for three matches, Coxa visits Avaí this Monday (6) in search of continuing in the G-4 of Serie A
For the fifth round of the Brazilian Championship, Coritiba has a new commitment against Avaí, in Florianópolis. For the away game, the coach Gustavo Morínigo has two confirmed absences for the duel, right-back Warley and midfielder Thonny Anderson. Warley was injured in the first round in the match against Goiás, on April 10th. He left the game with a grade two injury to his left thigh and left in the first half.
The 22-year-old athlete had his return scheduled for this Monday’s duel (9), but his recovery is not yet complete. The player did not carry out any group activities during the week and the tendency is that he will be left out of Gustavo Morínigo’s plans against Avaí. Along with another right-back, Nathaniel was another athlete who only did physical therapy activities last Thursday afternoon (5th).
In addition to Warley, the Paraguayan coach will also not have Thonny Anderson. He has been out since the match against Santos, in the 2-1 second-round defeat at Vila Belmiro. The player suffered an injury to the sole of his foot and has been out since April 17. The athlete, only 24 years old, has played 16 games for the Coxa team and has not yet scored a goal and given five assists.
Despite the absences, Morínigo has good news: the return of Uruguayan Pablo García. The 23-year-old midfielder returned to training after two months out of action. He played for the last time in the duel against Azuriz-PR for the state championship, in the 1-0 defeat, on March 1st. Pablo suffered a lower back injury and has since been out. Against the game against Avaí, he is available and can be related.
In four rounds for the Brasileirão, Coritiba has two wins, one point and one defeat, with nine goals scored and six conceded in the competition. At the moment, the team is in fourth place, behind only Corinthians, Bragantino and Atlético-MG. This Monday (9), Coxa visits Avaí for the fifth round, in a duel that takes place in Ressacada, in Florianópolis, at 8 pm. Avaí is in ninth place with the same seven points, but with a smaller balance.
