The 15th round of the Brasileirão will start with an interstate classic. This Saturday, the Fluminense receives the Corinthians, at 4:30 pm, at Maracanã. The game promises news, since Timão has a large number of injured and Tricolor has suspended players, in addition to not counting on Luiz Henrique anymore. The match will be broadcast on Premiere and Real Time THROW!
Fluminense is confident for the match. There are three games without losing, the squad comes from a victory over rival Botafogo. However, Diniz will need to fill in gaps. Without Luiz Henrique, who was transferred to Real Betis (ESP) last week, the coach should try Matheus Martins in the position. Suspended, nonatum can be replaced by Martinelli or Yago Felipe. Marcos Felipe, who had conjunctivitis, has already returned to training and should return.

O Corinthians, on the other hand, is going through a difficult phase. The team has not won away from home for a month and is coming off two goalless draws, against Santos and Boca Juniors. In addition, Vítor Pereira will have 10 absences for the duel. In Fagner’s place, Léo Maná should assume the right-back. Willian, who is also injured, can be replaced by Guilherme Biro. In Gil’s position, there is a possibility that Robson Bambu will win another chance.
