The midfielders Renato Augusto and Willian were on the field in the re-presentation of Corinthians this Thursday and may be available for the game against Avaí, on Saturday, at 19h, in Ressacada.
Renato Augusto had a soleus muscle injury (in the back of the leg, between the knee and the heel) and has not played since June 19, but he already trains with the ball. Willian was absent in the defeat to Flamengo, last Tuesday, due to tendinitis in his right thigh.
The presence of the duo in the starting lineup in the next game is still uncertain. Coach Vítor Pereira’s planning will also take into account the return duel of the Libertadores quarterfinals, on Tuesday, at Maracanã. The Portuguese usually decide the lineup only on the day of the match.
