Renato Portaluppi led the last training session in Porto Alegre early this Wednesday before traveling to São Luís, where Grêmio will face Sampaio Corrêa next Friday. The coach only released the warm-up for press access. The novelty in the delegation will be Thaciano, who is recovering from a muscle injury (see related list below).
The presence of the midfielder leaves a doubt in the starting lineup, as the coach can choose to preserve the athlete who returns from injury or take advantage of him in the first half. Otherwise, the team should not present any big surprises.
Between embezzlement and preservation, the coach will field a mixed team against Sampaio Corrêa. There are four players suspended for the third yellow card: Edilson, Diogo Barbosa, Bruno Alves and Lucas Leiva.
