Corinthians are defending the 1-0 first leg lead last Tuesday. A tie serves qualification, but the decision goes to a penalty shootout if Estudiantes responds to any victory by goal difference.
Corinthians is looking for an unprecedented title, and the South American Championship has become the priority of the season after being eliminated twice, in the CONMEBOL Libertadores and in the Copa do Brasil. Timão has already eliminated Universitario from Peru and Newell’s Old Boys from Argentina.
Estudiantes has been playing with Sudamericana since the group stage and was second in the group against Red Bull Bragantino. In the knockout stage, they eliminated Barcelona de Guayaquil from Ecuador, easily overtaking Goiás with two wins.
The Argentine national team also deals with this match with importance, so it excluded all the key players in the last match it played, on Saturday. Tickets for the duel have been completely sold out, and about 30,000 fans are expected to attend the Jorge Luis Hershey Stadium.
In addition to a place in the semi-finals, the classification also deserves a prize of US$800,000, which is equivalent to R$3.9 million at current exchange rates.
Corinthians – Coach: Vanderlei Luxemburgo
Murilo became a last-minute embezzler as he was sold to Nottingham Forest, so Caetano or Lucas Verissimo vied for the vacant position alongside Gil.

The lineup should be very similar to the one that started in the first game a week ago.
Potential team: Cassio, Bruno Mendes, Gil and Cayetano (Lucas Verissimo) and Fabio Santos; Gabriel Muscardo, Maicon and Renato Augusto; Matias Rojas, Guilherme Pirro, and Yuri Alberto.
