Corinthians line-up: Luxembourg surprises for Sul-Americana

Vanderlei Luxemburgo listed Renato Augusto for the match, but he is expected to make a series of changes in Corinthians’ lineup

The lineup of Corinthians to the Copa Sudamericana will have changes. This Tuesday, the 11th, Vanderlei Luxemburgo will have to enter the field with a different team in relation to what the fans are used to seeing. The coach has already warned that he will not prioritize continental competition and that he will use it as an alternative for players who do not have as much space in their squad. Therefore, for the game against University, from Peruthe team will be reserve.

The curiosity remains for the coach’s choice to relate Renato Augusto. After being injured, the midfielder recovered and was an option in the last round of the Brasileirão. The tendency is for the same to happen to him for this Copa Sudamericana playoff game. The expectation is that the number 8 can enter for a few minutes in the second half of the confrontation or even just stay on the bench to be spared for the game against América-MG.

Vanderlei Luxemburgo should use a lineup similar to the one that beat Liverpool, from Uruguay, in a match valid for the last round of the Libertadores. With that, young people like Guilherme Biro, Felipe Augusto, Pedro and Wesley should appear. Of starters, Murillo is guaranteed and great doubt to be around Renato Augusto. The tendency is for the boy Matheus Araújo to gain an opportunity in midfield.

Therefore, Corinthians’ line-up for the game against Universitario in the Copa Sudamericana should be as follows: Carlos Miguel, Rafael Ramos, Caetano, Murillo and Matheus Bidu; Roni, Giuliano and Matheus Araújo (Renato Augusto); Guilherme Biro (Wesley), Adson (Pedro) and Felipe Augusto.
