Sao Paulo and palm classic this Monday, for the 13th round of Brazil Championship. The ball rotates at Morumbi Stadium at 8pm (Brasilia time).
Tricolor Paulista is looking for a recovery in the national competition after the defeat Botafogofor 1 to 0, outside the home. Coach Rogério Ceni’s team is close to the G4, with 18 points.
For Choque-Rei, Ceni will be missing several times: Gabriel Sara (recovering from surgery on her right ankle), Nikão (pain in her left ankle), Alisson (broken right knee), Talles Costa ( dislocated ankle), Luan (surgery on left thigh muscle), Caio (ruptured anterior cruciate ligament of the right knee) and Moreira (traveling with the Portuguese under-18 team).
São Paulo has a good record in classics this season, with five wins, one draw and two defeats. Two negative results, however, were against Palmeiras, during Paulistão. The first took place in the group stage (1-0) and the second in a game of return for government decision (4-0).
Rogério Ceni spoke of Verdão’s series of games after the match against Botafogo: “It’s a tough game (against Palmeiras). We will try to bring back the players, but we have no one to turn to. Alisson, Sara, Nikão, Colorado and Caio are not returning. We have many athletes with no hope of returning. What we have is this here and we will try to keep ourselves fit to compete. ”
Like São Paulo, Palmeiras will also be a waste – starting with coach Abel Ferreira, who was acquired by Covid-19. Apart from the Portuguese who will be replaced by his assistant João Martins, five players will not be on the field.
Right-back Marcos Rocha treats myalgia in his right thigh and has been working privately at the College of Football. Jorge on the left is recovering from a hamstring injury and has returned to training with the team. Striker Raphael Veiga, after injuring his right thigh, began a physical change this Sunday. Midfielder Zé Rafael, for his part, received his third yellow card victory against Atletico GO and will serve the suspension at Choque-Rei. Finally, midfielder Jailson suffered a serious knee injury and is far from returning to the team.
On the other hand, defender Benjamin Kuscevic will be available again after the defense Chile national team on the FIFA Deadline.
Due to the absence of Rocha, João Martins could choose Mayke, Garcia or Gustavo Gómez on the right. The first came back from injury recently and came on against Atlético-GO on Thursday. The boy from the base was on the bench, with Paraguay, improved, in that position. He created a defensive line that started with Murilo, Luan and Joaquín Piquerez.
In the midfield, replacing Zé Rafael, Eduard Atuesta is seen as one option. In addition to the Colombian, Gabriel Menino has resumed his good form and can also be played. Finally, young Fabinho is another alternative.
Brasileirão leader with 25 points, Palmeiras has a good time and has lost just one game as a guest this season: especially against São Paulo, in the first leg of the Paulista Tournament final. After the match on Monday, the teams will face each other again, also in Morumbi, on Thursday, at 20:00, for the first match of the round of 16. Brazil Cup.
