For the game against Atlhetico, Ceni will be able to repeat most of the team that faced and beat Palmeiras, in the last quarter, by 2-0.
He will not have Luciano, who underwent surgery on Saturday to correct a fracture to a bone in his left wrist. There is no forecast for the attacker’s return.
Most likely, Calleri will inherit the vacancy, as the Argentinian is available again after serving a suspension in the derby.
For the fourth game, the only suspension is forward Eder, who has not been a starter.
Thus, the likely team to face Athletico has Tiago Volpi, Igor Vinícius, Arboleda, Miranda and Reinaldo; Rodrigo Nestor, Igor Gomes, Gabriel Sara and Vitor Bueno; Rigoni and Calleri.
