+ See table of Copa du Brazil
Playing at the top of the Brasileirão table, the Corinthians also want to survive in the knockout stages they are at odds over (Copa do Brasil and Libertadores). For that, coach waiter Pereira relies on the strength of the Corinthians at home. On the field, under the command of the Portuguese, there are eight wins and four draws. On the other hand, the team has not yet won the classic this season.
Santos is facing an unstable moment. Despite beating Juventus away from home in the middle of last week, the team led by Fabian Bostos has drawn at Villa Belmero. On Saturday, they reached their sixth draw in the Brazilian Championship when they drew 2-2 with Red Bull Bragentino at home. Therefore, it makes Copa do Brazil even more important.

Corinthians – Coach: Vitor Pereira
The team coach should have more options for this Wednesday’s classic. For starters, he counts on the return of defensive player Joao Victor and attacking midfielder Willian. Juniors Morris, Bruno Mello and Gustavo Silva, former absentees, trained with the group at the game, but the club does not disclose further relevant lists. With that, Maycon continues to be the only true fraud. Defensive gale condition, with muscle soreness, must be reported a few hours before the match. Róger Guedes, suspended in Brasileirão, tends to start as a starter again.
Possible lineup: Cassius Rafael Ramos (Fagner), Robson Bambo (Joao Victor), Raul Gustavo and Lucas Payton; Du Queiroz, Cantillo and Renato Augusto (Giuliano) Gustavo Mantuan (Gustavo Mosquito), Willian and Róger Guedes.
