Willian took the field 11 minutes into the second half, with Corinthians losing 1-0 to Ceará, this Thursday (25), for the 35th round of the Brazilian Championship, at Castelão stadium, in Fortaleza. At 38, the shirt 10 gave a sugary pass for Róger Guedes to tie the game, but three minutes later saw the Timão concedes the second goal to Vozão, who won 2-1.
At the end of the match, the Corinthians midfielder recognized the difficulty of facing Ceará away from home, but regretted the recurrence of goals conceded by Corinthians, which ensured the adverse result.
– Hard game. It’s difficult to play against Ceará here, a team that starts the game strong, but then we managed to control it, create opportunities, we scored the goal. Then we ended up taking it, it’s not the first game that’s happened. Rest and try to win victory on Sunday at home – he said in an interview with Premiere on the way out.
Recovered from an injury in the left posterior muscle, the shirt 10 has not started since his return, last weekend, in the derby against Santos. In the 2-0 victory against Peixe, at Neo Química Arena, Willian entered the 20th minute of the final stage. Against Ceará, the midfielder had nine minutes more.
Timão returns to the field this Sunday (28), at 5 pm, at Neo Química Arena, against Athletico-PR, for the 36th round of the Brasileirão. The tendency is for Willian to gain more time on the field to, little by little, regain his space as a starter.
