In search of a second consecutive victory, after triumph over Santos, Tricolor visits Leão do Pici seeking to maintain a good position in the table
Rogério Ceni listed 24 players from São Paulo to face Fortaleza, this Sunday (8). The São Paulo coach no longer counts on Nikão and Gabriel Sara, who are under the care of the Club’s medical department, nor with Thiago Volpi, who said he felt pain in his shoulder and is out of the list of related.
Tricolor athletes trained this Saturday (7) and are already on their way to Ceará for the match. The starting team should not count on any big news, since ten of the starting eleven did not travel to Chile for the duel that ended in a draw with Everton, for the Copa Sudamericana.
There is a curiosity among the related: midfielder Gabriel Neves, without space in Rogério Ceni’s team, returned to compose the list of São Paulo athletes for the Brazilian Championship. Passed over in the tricolor midfield options, the Uruguayan did not perform well during the midweek tie and is looking for more opportunities within the four lines. Meanwhile, midfielder Luan and defender Miranda are out of the squad for the game.
A probable lineup for Sunday’s game is: Jandrei, Rafinha, Arboleda, Diego Costa and Welington; Andres Colorado (Pablo Maia), Rodrigo Nestor, Igor Gomes and Alisson; Eder and Calleri. With seven points in four games, São Paulo is fifth in the table. The ball starts at 7pm, at Arena Castelão, in Fortaleza.
