Vitor Roque and Fernando Diniz Face-off: A Morbid Match between Ath. Paraná and Fluminense

27/08/2023 and las 08:00 CEST

Vitor Roque and the Brazilian coach, Fernando Diniz, will face each other this Sunday at Ath. Paraná – Fluminense (at 23:30 CEST) in a match corresponding to the 21st day of the Brasileirao. And it is that the ‘Canarinha’ coach, who will be in charge until July 2024 when he must disembark Carlo Ancelotti, he combines the position with that of ‘Flu’ coach.

It will be a match loaded with morbidity after Diniz, to the general surprise in Brazil, did not have the future ‘9’ of Barça for the first two games of the South American qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup, which will be played on the FIFA date of September. The non-call of ‘Tigrinho’ sat down fatally for Deco and the Blaugrana sports management, as SPORT revealed.

And Vitor Roque, who is going through a very sweet moment, will have the chance to vindicate himself and show his coach on the spot (although this time it is in his role as Fluminense coach), that at 18 he is ready to take on the challenge of playing regularly for Brazil.

His debut with the main team came in March, in a friendly in Morocco, in which he marked the debut of the youngest footballer since Ronaldo ‘Phenomenon’ in 1994.

‘Tigrinho’, and ‘Furacao’, will go for everything in search of three points that will allow them to consolidate themselves in the zone of access to the Copa Libertadores 2024.

In addition, they will have the advantage that Fluminense is likely to end up lining up a formation with substitutes, since on Thursday they played the first leg of the Copa Libertadores quarterfinals (they beat Olimpia 2-0 in Maracana) and, in four days , they have to face the return in Asunción in a game that is expected to be very tense.

With the great goal he scored on Monday against Goiás, Vitor Roque records 24 in this 2023. He has scored in two of his last three performances.

He is the top scorer of the year with Ath. Paranaense with 18 goals (9 of which in the Brasileirao where he is second in the artillery ranking), to which must be added the six he scored in the South American U-20 with Brazil, where he was champion and top scorer .

These magnificent records, however, have not finished convincing Fernando Diniz, that he has preferred to take the Seleçao to a ‘dupla’ of ‘9’ that has only scored 3 goals since January: richarlison (one with Tottenham) and Matheus Cunha (two with Wolverhampton). Both have not yet made their debut in three Premier League games this season.
