Before the game against Fluminense, Cruzeiro will have three more training sessions in Belo Horizonte. The celestial delegation is scheduled to travel to Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday (22), after completing preparations at Toca.
Also injured, goalkeeper Gabriel Brazo and midfielder Joo Paulo remain out of the team. J Wagner Leonardo is in the final stage of recovery and may be a novelty among those involved.
