Atletico visit Bragantino this Saturday, at 4:30 pm, at the Nabi Abi Chedid stadium, for the opening of the 33rd round, to join the G-4 of the Brazilian Championship. Hurricane will use the starting lineup to adjust the final details before the Libertadores final, a week away.
Sixth place, with 51 points, the red-black team is guaranteed in the G-6 and can touch Fluminense (fourth) and Corinthians (fifth), both with 54. The pair play classics against Botafogo (Maracanã) and Santos (Vila Belmiro).
