On the right side, Guga was kept as a starter in place of Mariano. On the left wing, Rubens was chosen to replace the injured Guilherme Arana.
In defense, a big surprise: captain Junior Alonso is on the bench. The titular duo will be formed by Nathan Silva and Jemerson.
In midfield, Nacho Fernndez replaces Zaracho, out for muscle issues. In the attack, Hulk is out, even having traveled with the delegation to Santa Catarina.
