With training on the morning of this Tuesday (27/9), at Toca da Raposa II, in Belo Horizonte, Cruzeiro closed the preparation for the duel with Ponte Preta. The teams will face each other this Wednesday (28/9), at 19h, at the Moiss Lucarelli stadium, in Campinas, for the 32nd round of Serie B of the Brazilian Championship.
Probable Cruzeiro team
Therefore, the tendency is for Pezzolano to change the team that sent the field against Vasco, in the last round. Weslley Gasolina, Willian Oliveira, Marquinhos Cipriano and Luvannor should win their chances for Stnio, Neto Moura, Kaiki and Lincoln, respectively.
Cruzeiro should play with Rafael Cabral; Z Ivaldo, Oliveira and Eduardo Brock; Wesley Gasolina (Geovane), Willian Oliveira, Filipe Machado and Marquinhos Cipriano (Matheus Bidu); Bruno Rodrigues, Luvannor and Edu.
Possible team from Ponte Preta
In addition to the contractual obstacle, the defender would already miss the São Paulo team against the miners. He suffered a trauma to his right knee during Macaca’s 2-0 victory over Londrina last Friday (23/9).
Without Mateus Silva, coach Hlio dos Anjos should select Guilherme Souza in the starting lineup. He was the defender’s replacement during the game against Tubaro and the favorite to take the spot. Thiago Oliveira runs on the outside.
There are no suspended or injured players. On the contrary, Ponte will have the return of the steering wheel Fraga, who served an automatic suspension for the third yellow card in the last round.
Therefore, the probable Ponte Preta team has Caque França; Igor Formiga, Guilherme Souza (Thiago Oliveira), Fbio Sanches and Artur; Felipe Amaral (Fraga), Lo Naldi, Wallisson and Elvis; Fessin and Lucca.
With 68 points, Cruzeiro is the only team that has already won the national elite access in 2023. The heavenly advantage in the lead is 15 points for vice-leader Grmio and 23 for the 5th place (Londrina). Ponte Preta, in turn, is in 7th position, with 43 points, and still dreams of returning to the First Division.
