Corinthians ended the preparation for the final of the Copa do Brasil. Timão enters the field this Wednesday, at 21:45 (Brasília time), to face Flamengo, at Neo Química Arena, in the first of two duels to define the champion. Vitor Pereira will have the main players available.
The trend is that the coach does not make changes in relation to the starting lineup that had been acting before starting to merge the team as a form of preparation for the duel. Therefore, a probable Corinthians team has: Cassius; Fagner, Gil, Balbuena and Fábio Santos; Du Queiroz, Fausto and Renato Augusto; Adson (Gustavo Mosquito or Ramiro), Yuri Alberto and Róger Guedes.
This Tuesday, Timão trained possession of the ball, fighting in a reduced field and had the traditional tactical activity that precedes the games. Offensive and defensive set pieces were also part of the work. Finally, there was a finishing workout.

Vitor will have maximum strength on the bench, with the presence of right-back Rafael Ramos and midfielder Maycon, both recovered from injury. The pair received a few minutes in the previous game, for the Brasileirão, against Athletico.
The great “reinforcement” of the starting lineup is goalkeeper Cássio, who gave the crowd a little scare, but did not worry the medical department: shirt 12 suffered a foot trauma against Juventude, last week, in Caxias do Sul, and did not face the Hurricane.
