Team News: Corinthians
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Corinthians gaffer Vanderlei Luxemburgo to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed group of players. Paulinho (Ruptured knee ligament) is out of contention.
We are thinking that Timão will probably opt for a 4-2-3-1 system for the game, utilising Cassio, Fagner, Caetano, Lucas Verissimo, Fabio Santos, Gabriel Moscardo, Maycon, Matías Rojas, Renato Augusto, Pedro and Yuri Alberto.
Team News: Grêmio
We’re of the thinking that Tricolor dos Pampas will likely elect for a 4-3-3 formation, going with Gabriel Grando, Joao Pedro, Rodrigo Ely, Walter Kannemann, Reinaldo, Mathías Villasanti, Franco Cristaldo, Pepê, Everton Galdino, Luis Suarez and J. Pedro Geraldino.
Grêmio and Corinthians should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner.
Let’s see what happens, but it could well be that we end up with scores level. Our tip is therefore for a very close game with a 1-1 scoreline at the end of the match.
