On a Friday when exams showed an injury that should take midfielder Giuliano out of the rest of the season, the Corinthians coaching staff at least has reason to rejoice: after seven games, midfielder Willian is once again available to coach Sylvinho.

The return will be this Sunday, against Santos, at 4 pm, at Neo Química Arena.

Out since October 13, in the victory against Fluminense, when he suffered a muscle injury in his left thigh, the shirt 10 is able to, at least, be an option on the bench. He should start out of the starting lineup and, in the final stretch of the Brasileirão, gain more minutes from game to game.
