Paulo Pezzolano will take 21 players to Cruzeiro’s duel with Vila Nova-GO, this Friday, 9:30 pm, at Mineirão, for the 16th round of Série B. Rafa Silva, with foot discomfort, remains absent. The novelty is due to the return of Léo Pais.
The Uruguayan was out of the games against Ponte Preta, Fluminense and Sport, due to a muscle edema in the right thigh. Completely released, he disputes position with Geovane Jesus on the right wing. The boy participated directly in goals against Ponte and Sport.
With Rafa Silva still out of action, the tendency is for Luvannor and Daniel Junior to keep alongside Edu in the offensive system. Thus, Paulo Pezzolano should repeat the team that started against Sport, on Tuesday.
