Corinthians is scheduled to face Atlético-GO at 7 pm today (28), at Neo Química Arena, for the 28th round of the Brazilian Championship. Coach Vítor Pereira opted for the best selection after more than a week of free training.
Of the usual starters, Timão does not have only Balbuena, who played yesterday (27) for the Paraguayan national team. Bruno Méndez will be the substitute. Other VP absences are Raul Gustavo (suspended), Maycon, Rafael Ramos and Júnior Moraes (transition), in addition to Paulinho (recovering from knee surgery).
In this way, Corinthians goes to the field with: Cassius; Fagner, Bruno Méndez, Gil and Fábio Santos; Fausto Vera, Du Queiroz and Renato Augusto; Gustavo Mosquito, Yuri Alberto and Róger Guedes.
Atlético-GO, commanded by coach Eduardo Baptista, is defined with: Renan; Dudu, Wanderson, Lucas Gazal and Arthur Henrique; Willian Maranhão, Baralhas and Wellington Rato; Airton, Churin and Luiz Fernando.
Corinthians seeks to win again in the Brasileirão after three consecutive setbacks. Vítor Pereira’s team has only won one of the last seven games in the running points tournament, which made the team leave the G4 – currently it is fifth, with 44 points. Vice-lantern, Atlético-GO, in turn, tries to surprise in Itaquera to present some kind of reaction after four consecutive defeats.
