Timão is coming off a 2-1 victory against Atlético-GO, also at home, in a game that put the team back in the G-4 of the Brasileirão, with 47 points. Corinthians should once again have a full house. In the last 26 games, Neo Química Arena received an audience of over 30,000 people.
Cuiabá also came from a 2-1 victory over América-MG, at Arena Pantanal, a result that ended a five-game drought without winning. Despite this, Dourado remains in the relegation zone, but now within a point of Ceará and Coritiba, the first teams outside the Z-4.

Corinthians – Coach: Vitor Pereira
After scaling the ideal team in the victory against Atlético-GO, the tendency is for Vítor Pereira to rest some athletes who are more worn out, but still focused on the Brasileirão. As the team travels to Caxias do Sul on Monday, where it takes on Juventude on Tuesday, the coach will have to decide the best strategy to build two competitive teams and avoid injuries before the Copa do Brasil finals. Balbuena, who was with the Paraguay national team, is a reinforcement for tonight’s match.
Who is out: Maycon (transition to the field).
hanging: Fausto Vera, Gil, Giovane and Giuliano.
Likely Escalation: Cassius; Fagner (Rafael Ramos), Balbuena, Raul Gustavo and Lucas Piton; Fausto Vera, Du Queiroz and Renato Augusto (Giuliano); Gustavo Mosquito (Adson), Róger Guedes and Yuri Alberto.

Cuiabá – Coach: António Oliveira
The Dourado coach counts on the return of midfielder Camilo and defender Paulão, after serving suspension. The first should resume his spot in the starting lineup, in place of young Denilson. Left-back Igor Cariús traveled with the delegation to the capital of São Paulo, but it is doubtful due to muscle discomfort. For the rest, the team can be the same team that won over América-MG.
Embezzlement: Felipe Marques, Uendel and Walter (injured).
hanging: André Felipe, Cristhian Rivas, Marllon and Rafael Gava.
Likely Escalation: John Carlos; Marllon, Joaquim and Alan Empereur; Camilo (Denilson), Pepê and Sidcley; André Luís, Rodriguinho and Deyverson.
