Atltico can make many changes to the line-up to face Fortaleza on Saturday (25) at 9pm, in Maniro, Belo Horizonte. This match is suitable for the 14th round of Serie A of the Brazilian Championship.
There could be other changes to the defense if Torco Mohamed chooses to save players for the Copa Libertadores match against Amelik in the United States. The Argentine coach will have to wait for a response from the physiology department to find out if he has to replace a player due to a physical injury.

Eventually, the attack will change. That’s because forward Cano felt pain in the back of his right thigh again in Wednesday’s victory over Flamingo, and will be hard to use. Star Hulk, which has inflammation on the sole of his right foot, can also be saved by thinking of Libertadores.
Thus, Atltico has a potential lineup for the game against Fortaleza. Everson Goga, Nathan Silva, Jr. Alonso and Guilhermi Arana; Allen, Otto and Robbins (Caleb); Vargas (Soyo), Admir and Hulk (Sasha).
Atltico tries to follow the reaction that started with two victories over rivals Flamengo. In the Brazilian Championship, Gallo is fourth with 21 points, seven behind leader Palmyra.
