In defense, Rhodolfo was not listed (the club did not confirm the reason) and may not play for Cruzeiro, as he has a contract at the end. In attack, Luxembourg continues with several offensive casualties. Bruno José and Keké are injured, while Vitor Leque meets the second suspension game for the red taken against Remo. Thiago, with three yellow ones, is also out.
The boy’s absence makes room for the presence of Rafael Sobis in the starting lineup. Marcelo Moreno, back from the Bolivian national team, is also an option. Wellington Nem returns after serving suspension and will play open in attack – probably on the right. Felipe Augusto and Claudinho are alternatives for the other side of the sector.
The rest of the team could be the same. Ariel Cabral, who has been little used this season, should only be used in the second stage, performing his 200th and last match with the starred shirt.
