Two Brazilian football giants return to the field this Saturday for the 30th round of Serie B. Vasco receives the Coritiba, at 4:30 pm, in São Januário, with the presence of the fans, and need to win to touch the G4 with nine rounds left in the championship. Thigh, in turn, is the leader, but hasn’t won in three matches.
For the duel, Fernando Diniz will still not be able to count on midfielder Andrey, who had a malaise and did not participate in the last training sessions. Besides him, Sarrafiore only returns next season, Michel is still out, and Miranda is suspended by Conmebol. Striker Léo Jabá returned to training during the week after recovering from lower back pain and should be an option.
