Team News: The Strongest
The Strongest manager Alberto Illanes has no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match with a fully injury-free group available for selection.
Team News: Santos
Santos manager Marcelo Fernandes has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Raniel (Unknown Injury), Jobson (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Sandry (Ruptured knee ligament) can’t be considered.
We’re inclined to think that Santos should have enough to get a goal against this The Strongest outfit, but that possibly won’t quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We can see a very close game with a 2-1 victory for The Strongest at the end of the match. Looking forward to this.
