Team News: Atlético Goianiense
The Atlético Goianiense boss Eduardo Baptista does not have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this clash owing to a completely healthy group available for selection.
In all likelihood, Dragão should use a 4-2-3-1 formation for this one, utilising Dos Santos Renan, Hayner, Wanderson, Klaus, Jefferson, Willian Maranhão, Edson Fernando, Airton, Shaylon, Wellington Rato and Ricardinho.
Team News: Internacional
With a fully injury-free group available to choose from, the Internacional manager Mano Menezes has zero fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash.
We believe Colorado seem most likely to elect for a 4-3-3 system, settling for Keiller, Fabricio Bustos, Vitão, Gabriel Mercado, Rene, Gabriel, Edenilson, Carlos De Pena, Alan Patrick, Alexandre Alemão and Pedro Henrique.
Our thinking is that Atlético Goianiense might need a bit of good fortune to breach the defence of this Internacional lineup who we think might end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
That’s why our selection here is for a hard-fought 0-1 winning score for Internacional at the end of the 90.
Hoping for a good game.
