It was the eighth comeback of 2023 for “Furacao”. There is no denying that the Curitiba team is one of the best teams in Brazilian football. They have three league wins in a row (against Flamengo, Internacional in Porto Alegre and the Classic against Coritiba) and are fifth, just three points behind leaders Botafogo. In the Libertadores he is the leader of his group after beating Libertad (1-2) in Asunción. And now he’s at the table in the Copa do Brasil When he had a game and therefore a tie, he eluded that.
This growth of Ath would be inexplicable. Parnanaense without the contribution of his “9”, where he recorded 8 goals and 3 assists in 17 games. If you count the Sudamericano Sub-20 and his debut at the main Seleçao, there are 27 games with 14 goals and 5 assists so far this year.
