dorival junior will have one more ally following the season with São Paulo. After having made seven of the first ten matches as a visitor, the coach will have seven of the next nine games at the stadium Morumbi. So far, in the current season, Dorival played three times at Morumbi and won all of them, with nine goals scored and only two conceded. The game series starts this Saturday, against Goiasat 21h, for the eighth round of the Brazilian.
The moment that São Paulo lives is very good. Without knowing defeat for 11 games, the team is eighth in the Brazilian Championship, with 12 points, is close to reaching the quarterfinals of the Copa do Brasil and leads the group in the Copa Sudamericana. To increase the series without defeats and continue adding points, the team will have a month of June practically without travel.
Another factor that has been a differential for São Paulo in the games held at Morumbi is the presence of its fans. Even though the team is not among the main candidates for the title in the competitions it disputes, the fans have been present at the stadium and the team owns the highest average attendance of the Brasileirão so far, with more than 48 thousand people. For the duel with Goiás, once again, the crowd has already secured more than 35,000 tickets and will be in force in the stands.
Aiming at the sequence of matches and the break for the next game, which will be on Thursday against Sport in the Copa do Brasil, Dorival Júnior should send the best available player to the field. Nestor and Arboleda, who felt a physical problem due to muscle overload, should remain out of action. Michel Araújo and Diego Costa should appear in the starting lineup.
Goiás arrives packaged
On the other hand, Goiás is also looking to take advantage of the momentum of the season. Without losing for four matches, counting all competitions, the midwest team needs to add points to stay outside the relegation zone for Série B do Brasileiro.
In the last match of the team, for the Copa Sudamericana, coach Emerson Ávila spared a large part of the starting lineup and goes with the best he has available for the duel in Morumbi against São Paulo this Saturday for the eighth round of the Brasileirão.
