Londrina - Sao Bento:
Londrina must return to winning.
In the last month the decline of Londrina allowed to leave the third place and occupy half of the ranking.
This evening we face one of worst teams in the championship, Sao Bento penultimate in the standings with 16 points, only Guarani did worse than him, last at 13.
Claudio Tencati, manager of Londrina wants to return to the victory that has been missing for almost a month when he beat Parana 3-0 and return to the top positions to return to the race for Serie A access.
Claudio Tencati has revitalized Londrina, because he is an old fish acquaintance, after almost two years, coach Claudio Tencati returned to Londrina, hired instead of Alemão, the coach was officially presented this Thursday.
Claudio Tencati spent almost seven years at Londrina, had a solid project and reached the pinnacle.
Go home in the most important moment in the history of club Londrina can fight to go to Serie A.
After leaving Londrina in November 2017, the coach went to Atlético-GO in 2018 and Vitória.
In this period without Tencati, Tubarão had five coaches:
Ricardinho, Marquinhos Santos, Sergio Soares, Roberto Fonseca and finally Alemao.
Londrina is currently down in ninth position with 25 points, four points below the first four positions, and has been four games without a win.
Meanwhile, to face Sao Bento, Londrina reinforces and buys from the newly promoted Ituano in Serie C, defender Léo Rigo, can make his debut against Sao Bento, but will not be the only reinforcement for Tencati, besides Leo Rigo, Londrina works behind the scenes to regularize striker Junior Pirambu, bought by Brusque.
He was champion and top scorer of the Brazilian D series, with 10 goals.
The shark board believes that the player will only be available in the next game against Guarani.
How Londrina arrives:
Unfortunately Dagoberto (Striker 5/2), the best Londrina striker was still hurt, has one month and will not be able to play against Sao Bento, but do not worry, the shark has the important return of striker Paulinho Moccelin.
After losing the last two games, he recovered from a muscle injury, and returned to training, is available for coach Claudio Tencati for the match against Sao Bento.
He will not be the only absent for Londrina:
Midfielder Anderson Leite (Midfielder 8/1), not recovering from his injury, returned to training this week after a muscle injury, but was injured again on Thursday.
Defender Marcondes (Defender 13/0) was also absent, undergoing knee surgery last Monday.
He broke the cruciate ligament of the meniscus in the game against America-MG in the 15th round.
The expected recovery is 6-8 months.
Even defender Augusto (Defender 13/1) does not recover, he is out for another three weeks.
On the other hand, in Sao Bento's home there is a situation of turbulence, President Marcio Rogerio Dias, threatening to dismiss the coach Doriva, accusing him of every single failure of Sao Bento and the bad season in Serie B, Sao Bento is ad one step from the return in Serie C.
Despite being second to last in the standings, Doriva should continue to coach Sao Bento in the match against Londrina, but in the event of a defeat there is already rumor that Milton Mendes, current Santa Cruz coach, has been contacted.
In 17 games in São Bento, Doriva has a negative record, with only 4 wins, 4 draws and 9 defeats.
The coach was hired shortly after relegation from Paulista, with mission to remodel the team, and avoid relegation to Serie C.
The future of Doriva will depend a lot on this game.
Sao Bento comes to this meeting after losing to Brasil de Pelotas by 2-1.
For this meeting Sao Bento will be able to count on its new reinforcement, How Sao Bento arrives:
Sao Bento will not have all his best players, right-back Marcos Martins (Defender 4/1) is again suspended, Joílson (Defender 2/0), disqualified, Élton (Midfielder 10/1) will not be injured .
Only good news is return of attacker Caio Rangel (Attacker 11/0), who is recovered from a muscle injury.
In all cases Doriva will make other changes, after the defeat against Brasil de Pelotas does not have the players in the best shape.
With the great return of his historic coach Claudio Tencati, Londrina has all the credentials to return to victory after four rounds of abstinence and return to approach in the first four positions in the struggle to rise in Brasilerao A.
Now Londrina has to go back to winning and has the opportunity to take six points, because in the next round Guarani is going to play last in the standings.
Sao Bento is experiencing another reality, if a great result is not obtained, coach Doriva will be exonerated, team is the main candidate for relegation, after having already been relegated to the regional Paulista championship.
With the great motivation of the great return of coach Tencati, let's go with the victory of the shark, Londrina has the great chance to return to the top four positions.
