CSA is struggling to move away from the relegation zone. Today, it is 16th in Serie B with 14 points, and came from a draw away from home. This was particularly due to the volatile campaign when the board changed coaches last week. Tonight, Alberto Valentim is leading the team for the second time, the first time in Rei Pelé, and expect a good performance.

CSA – Coach: Alberto Valentim
On Sunday, Alberto made his CSA debut with a goalless draw against Guarani. He liked the performance and since he didn’t lose any holders, he should repeat the lineup.
He wants a safe team on the field and is betting on four players in between, including two defensive midfielders and two midfielders. In this formation, Gabriel is no longer the second midfielder to make the team clear. The current low midfielder is Dedera, who received a third yellow card and lacks a CSA bench.
Possible lineup: Marcelo Corn Lucas Marquez, Wellington, Lukau and Diego Renan; Geovane, Giva, Lourenço and Gabriel Osvaldo and Rodrigo Rodriguez.
Who’s out: Dedera (suspended), Clayton (knee), Cedric (knee), Ernads (knee) and Gabriel Tony (publgia).
Hanging: Giovanni, Marco Tolio and Wellington
