Corinthians will not have two starters in the match against Grêmio, this Saturday, at 9 pm, in Porto Alegre, for the 17th round of the Brasileirão. Injured right-back Fagner and attacking midfielder Adson were not listed for the match.
Fagner is still feeling pain in his right calf and Adson did not recover in time from the trauma to his left leg he suffered at the end of the last game, against Athletico.
The tendency is for defensive midfielder Du Queiroz, who replaced Fagner in last Sunday’s duel, to be chosen as the right-back starter.

In Adson’s vacancy, coach Sylvinho can promote the entry of Marquinhos, Gabriel Pereira or even give Renato Augusto’s first chance as a starter since his return. Physically better, the midfielder should win more minutes than in the last two matches, against Ceará (played 32 minutes) and Athletico (25).
Another alternative would be to climb a more defensive means, with the entry of Cantillo, and Giuliano being moved to the left side.
A likely line-up for Corinthians is: Cássio, Du Queiroz, João Victor, Gil and Fábio Santos; Gabriel, Roni and Giuliano; Marquinhos (Renato Augusto), Gustavo Mosquito and Jô.
In advanced negotiations with Apoel, Cyprus, striker Léo Natel was not related to the match.
