Probable lineups Santos x Cruzeiro

Santos lineup

Uruguayan coach Diego Aguirre, who has been in charge for four matches (three defeats and one victory), has gained reinforcements and can test new players on the team. João Basso, Júnior Caiçara, Dodô, Rincón, Jean Lucas, Nonato and Julio Furch have already made their debuts, while strikers Maximiliano Silvera and Alfredo Morelos hope to receive their first opportunity. The club is still speculating on midfielder Luiz Gustavo.

The reinforcements help to make up for the absences of Alison, Sandry, Felipe Jonatan and Alex Nascimento, all with physical problems, in addition to Yeferson Soteldo, who was sent off in the defeat to América-MG. On the other hand, Dodi and Lucas Braga return from suspension.

Peixe still has a list of important players, such as Messias, Dodô, Gabriel Inocêncio, Rodrigo Fernández, Camacho and Marcos Leonardo.

Probable Santos lineup: João Paulo; Junior Caiçara, João Basso, Joaquim (Messias) and Dodô; Rincón, Rodrigo Fernández (Dodi) and Lucas Lima (Furch); Jean Lucas, Mendoza and Marcos Leonardo Technician: Diego Aguirre.

Cruzeiro lineup

Newly arrived at the club, Zé Ricardo will not be able to count on his debut with Matheus Pereira, Rafael Bilu, Ramiro and Wesley Gasolina (the latter, closer to his return, already in transition on the pitch), all recovering from injuries. The positive point is the absence of suspended players, as the suspended Bruno Rodrigues, Lucas Oliveira, Luciano Castán, Matheus Jussa and Palacios did not suffer cards in the last match.

It is still difficult to project Zé’s line-up, but the team will probably have Rafael Cabral in goal, with the two full-backs in great form, William and Marlon, as well as Bruno Rodrigues, one of the team’s highlights this year – despite the bad phase, without scoring goals since June.

Cruzeiro’s probable lineup: Rafael Cabral; William, Neris, Luciano Castan and Marlon; Matheus Jussa (Machado), Lucas Silva and Mateus Vital; Nikão (Arthur Gomes), Bruno Rodrigues (Wesley) and Rafael Elias (Gilberto). Technician: Zé Ricardo.
