Sao Bernardo – Coach: Marcio Zanardi
The Perno coach is supposed to return to the 4-4-2 formation in tonight's match after playing with three defenders in the draw away to Guarani. As a result, the team tends to have three central midfielders and a more conservative midfield formation.
The attack should continue with the experienced duo of Sylvinho and Joao Carlos, with Lucas Tocantins rotating between a third player up front and a fourth player in midfield during the reshaping.
Possible lineup: Alex Alves; Vitor Ricardo, Helder, Pedro Carrete and Arthur Henrique; Rodrigo Souza, Lucas Lima, Romaison and Lucas Tocantins; Sylvinho and Joao Carlos.
Who left: Jefferson and Vitinho (injured).
Corinthians – Coach: Mano Menezes
Mano Menezes has only one doubt about tonight's game. With muscle discomfort, defender Caetano still does not have an assured presence. For this reason, the club signed Raul Gustavo on Thursday, who continues to train and recover from a knee ligament injury, which he suffered at the beginning of last season when he was on loan at Bahia.
The coach can also make changes in the midfield, a sector that was not satisfactory in the defeat to Ituano. Ranelli and Matias Rojas are in danger of losing their position. Fausto Vera could get a chance against Sao Bernardo.
Possible lineup: Casio; Wagner, Felix Torres, Caetano (Raul Gustavo) and Hugo; Ranelli (Fausto Vera), Maicon, Mateus Araujo and Matias Rojas; Romero and Yuri Alberto.
Who left: Mateus Bedo, Rafael Ramos and Rodrigo Garro (not registered), Ruan Oliveira (knee surgery), Paulinho (move to field) and Gustavo Henrique (strengthening).
