The second leg is scheduled to take place on the 31st in Sao Paulo. The club that qualifies for the quarter-finals of the Copa do Brasil will receive approximately R$4.3 million in prize money.
Atlético MG came from two consecutive victories for the Brazilians. Cuiaba crushed 4-0, in Arena Pantanal, and Internacional won 2-0, in Mineirão. The rooster touched the G4 of the championship, occupying sixth place with 10 points, after six rounds he played.
Corinthians is having a bad moment and is trying to rehabilitate herself. The team has not won in five games and has yet to win under coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo. In Brazil, the team is in the relegation zone, and is in seventeenth place, with only five points.
Atlético-MG – Coach: Eduardo Coudet
Atletico has no new absences in Wednesday’s game. Eduardo Coudet has been promoting the cast of the matches and the lineup will change (again). One of them is the return of Hulk to the starting lineup. The team’s top scorer started the last match on the bench.
Defender Mauricio Lemos and winger Saravia have, in the past few matches, returned to the coach’s plans. Expectations are on the side of Guilherme Arana and defender Igor Rabello. The two have recovered from the injury, and are already training with the group. Codit treats the duo’s return to gaming with caution.
Those abroad: Ottavio, Alan and Pedrino (injured); Alan Kardec (moving to physical).
Possible team: Iverson. Bruno Fox, Mauricio Lemos, Jimerson and Patrick; Battaglia, Zaracho, Hioran; Pavon, Hulk, and Paulinho (Vargas).
Corinthians – Coach: Vanderlei Luxemburgo
Timão goes into the third match of the Copa do Brasil with a third different coach. He made his debut against Remo with Fernando Lazaro, Cuca was in the return leg and now he is betting on Luxembourg.
For this match, the coach is counting on the return of Paulinho, who has recovered from injury, but the defensive midfielder must start the match on the bench.
It is likely that the team will have changes in the starting line-up, with the return of Fabio Santos and Rooney, who were reserves in the classic match against Sao Paulo, last Sunday.
Those abroad: Gustavo Mosquito and Renato Augusto (knee injury)
Possible team: Casio. Wagner, Gil, Murillo and Matheus Bedou (Fabio Santos); Ronnie, Fausto Vera and Maicon (Giuliano); Wesley (Adson), Roger Geddes, and Yuri Alberto.
