My Timon

Renato’s participation from the start of the match is a wish of the coaching staff as part of the midfielder’s physical evolution. There is a consensus, however, that he still can’t stand playing for 90 minutes, being a certain substitution in the second half. Should Roni enter, the process would be identical to the last three games.

Luan, on the other hand, selected for the victory against Grêmio, would be an option to protect Róger Guedes in a possible second half. The striker, however, was in good physical condition.

Willian, who hasn’t completed a week of training, stays out of the duel in preparation to be listed at the weekend. Giuliano, in turn, is heading for his fifth consecutive game as a starter.
