Vagner Mancini chose to rest his main players in the last round of Paulistão; Palmeiras needs a stumble from the team of Novo Horizonte to advance to the quarterfinals
The Coach Vagner Mancini chose not to list any player considered to be the holder of the Corinthians for the match against Novorizontino, at Neo Química Arena, valid for the last round of the group stage of the Paulista championship and scheduled for 4 pm (Brasilia) this Sunday, 9. Already qualified for the quarterfinals, Alvinegro paulista will focus on the next phase of the State and also on the Copa Sudamericana. On Thursday, Timão measures his strength with Peñarol, in Uruguay, for the fourth round of the continental tournament – the Brazilian team needs to win to stay alive in the competition.
The match between Corinthians and Novorizontino, however, is of interest to Palm Trees. Third place in Group C, Verdão has 18 points, one less than the team from the interior. Thus, in addition to needing to win the Ponte Preta, in Campinas, also on this Sunday, Alviverde will have to cheer for his rival to at least draw. During the week, coach Vagner Mancini had not already assured that he would put the players in the last round of Paulistão, but he said that his team will take the field to win. Among those enrolled, all were not in the ideal team in the tie against the Sao Paulo and in the triumph over the Sport Huancayo, no Peru.
