Sampaio Corrêa – Coach: Léo Condé

Coach Léo Condé has carried out his training sessions behind closed doors and does not confirm the changes, but the tendency is for him to make changes in defense and attack. In defense both should happen on the left side. Spared in the last round, Pará should resume the left-back in place of Lucas Hipólito. And as defender Nilson Júnior left the team to play in Iranian football, the tendency is for Gabriel Furtado, recovered from injury, to resume the post. Joécio should remain as an option for the sector.
In addition, another change considered certain is the return of forward Pimentinha, who was spared in Sampaio’s last game. Nádson, thus, will be removed from the team. Mauritius has recovered from a muscle injury and should be listed for departure.
Possible lineup for Sampaio Corrêa: Gabriel Batista, Mateusinho, Alan Godói, Gabriel Furtado Pará, André Luiz, Ferreira, Rafael Vila, Pimentinha, Ygor Catatau and Gabriel Poveda.
