São Paulo welcomes Flamengo at 8:30 pm this Saturday (6), at Morumbi, in a match valid for the 21st round of the Brasileirão. Tricolor comes from five games without winning in the national competition and goes to the field looking to find the path of victories. The last triumph was won in the 15th round, against Atlético-GO, away from home. Then there were four draws and one defeat.

On the other hand, Rogério Ceni’s team comes to the confrontation packed with the 1-0 victory over Ceará, last Wednesday (3), for the quarterfinals of the Copa Sudamericana. For the commitment against Fla for the national Serie A, Ceni will be able to count on the returns of Patrick and Alisson. Having recovered from injury, the midfielders are at the disposal of the coaching staff.

Patrick could appear among the starters, while Alisson should be an option on the bench. A probable lineup for Tricolor Paulista has: Felipe Alves; Diego Costa, Miranda (Moreira) and Léo; Rafinha, Pablo Maia, Galoppo, Nikão, Talles Costa (Patrick) and Reinaldo (Wellington); Calleri.

This Friday’s (5th) activities at the Barra Funda CT brought other news for São Paulo fans. In the transition phase to the field, goalkeeper Jandrei and midfielder Luan returned to training. Argentinian Nahuel Bustos, introduced this Friday, also worked on the field, but should debut only on the 14th, against Red Bull Bragantino, for the 22nd round of the Brazilian Championship.
