In an interview after the last match, coach Enderson Moreira made it clear that he will make good use of the tricolor cast. Therefore, the tendency is for the newly hired Marcinho and Ricardo Goulart, in addition to some reserves, to gain a chance in the starting lineup.
– What we have to do is use our squad. It is very difficult for us to do this sequence of four games in eleven days. This is going to cost a lot, and we’re going to pay a heavy price in wear and tear. That’s why we went after qualifying our cast. Let’s check game by game to see who has the best conditions – said the coach.
