Corinthians returns to the field this Saturday (6th) for the 21st round of the Brasileirão, when they visit Avaí at the Ressacada stadium, in Florianópolis, at 7pm. Thinking about maintaining the vice-leadership and the pursuit of the leader and rival Palmeiras, Timão should have an alternative team, aiming at the decisive confrontation against Flamengo next Tuesday (9), for the return game of the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores.
In the first round, Corinthians won 3-0 at Neo Química Arena, with three goals from Róger Guedes.
