Probable lineup: Saints; Pedro Henrique, Thiago Heleno and Nico Hernández; Marcinho, Erick (Christian), Léo Cittadini and Abner; Nikão, Kayzer and Terans.

Bragantino – Technician: Maurício Barbieri

The main doubt in the lineup of Massa Bruta is in midfield. Lucas Evangelista and Eric Ramires were undergoing intensive treatment in the medical department to be able to play. However, their entry is doubtful. If the two are unable to start, coach Maurício Barbieri has some alternatives. Backing up midfielder Praxedes and putting left-back Luan Cândido in the middle or putting forward Helinho in the frame, with more Praxedes further back.

Probable lineup: Cleiton; Aderlan, Fabrício Bruno, Léo Ortiz and Edimar (Luan Cândido); Jadsom, Praxedes and Helinho (Eric Ramires); Arthur, Cuello and Ytalo.
