Cruzeiro – Coach: Paulo Pezzolano

Against Ponte Preta, Paulo Pezzolano will not have two holders available. Striker Jajá is out due to a knee injury, and Léo Pais, right winger, had a muscle swelling in his right thigh. On the right, when the Uruguayan was not available, the coach chose to use Waguininho, especially in home matches. Geovane Jesus would be another option.

For Jajá’s place, there is the possibility of using Rafa Silva, changing the game a little, but Pezzolano can also use a one-two on the left, with Rafael Santos and Bidu, advancing the second to the line of attackers.

Likely lineup: Rafael Cabral; Zé Ivaldo, Lucas Oliveira and Eduardo Brock; Willian Oliveira, Neto Moura, Fernando Canesin, Matheus Bidu and Waguininho (Geovane); Rafa Silva (Rafael Santos) and Edu

Ponte Preta – Coach: Hélio dos Anjos

Ponte arrives without four holders from the last game. The main absence is the striker Lucca, top scorer of Serie B, with six goals. He is suspended for three yellow cards. Defender Thiago Oliveira and right-back Bernardo, sent off against Londrina, are also out, as is striker Danilo Gomes, undergoing treatment for muscle pain.

The team will also not have the command of Hélio dos Anjos on the edge of the lawn. The coach was expelled for complaint and will be replaced by Guilherme dos Anjos, his assistant and son. On the other hand, midfielder Felipe Amaral, one of the pillars of the midfield, is available again after two games recovering from ankle pain.

The big news will be the debut as a starter of the young defender Douglas Mendes – called DG, 18 years old. As Norberto is still out for physical reasons, Igor Formiga assumes the right side. There is still the possibility that Wallisson will come in to reinforce the midfield, and Echaporã will appear in the attack alongside Fessin.

Likely lineup: Caique França, Igor Formiga, Fábio Sanches, DG and Artur; Felipe Amaral, Léo Naldi, Ramon and Wallysson; Fessin and Echapora.

Who is out: forward Lucca (three yellow cards); defender Thiago Oliveira, right-back Bernardo and coach Hélio dos Anjos (expelled); forward Danilo Gomes (muscle pain); right-back Norberto (physical transition).

hanging: Caique França, Léo Naldi and Fessin.
