Red Bull Bragantino and Atlético-MG face off this Sunday, August 29, at 8:30 pm, at the Nabi Abi Chedid Stadium, in Bragança Paulista, for the 18th round of the Brazilian Championship.
The duel is between teams that are in the G4 of the national competition. Galo leads with 38 points, while Massa Bruta has 31 points, in fourth place.
Coach Cuca may have Diego Costa’s debut at Atlético-MG. The striker, who is regaining fitness, should at least be on the bench in Bragança.
In Maurício Barbieri’s team, defensive midfielder Raul, with a ligament injury in his right knee, and midfielder Lucas Evangelista, injured in the adductor muscle of his right thigh, are certain embezzlements. Defender Léo Ortiz, who recovered from COVID-19, is available and can start playing.
The coach from Alvinegro will take advantage of the slack that the team will have due to the World Cup qualifiers to give the squad a break for the great sequence of games.
