Recovered from injury, Orejuela is still not well physically and has not been related to the game; Igor Vinícius in DM and Galeano suspended expand list of embezzlement
Still unable to count on Ear, O São Paulo goes to the field this Thursday, 7th, without an official right-back for the derby against the Santos, for the 24th round of the brazilian. The Colombian has recently recovered from an injury, but is still without the proper fitness to return to the team. Orejuela took the field for the last time two months ago, in the game against Athletico-PR, in the final minutes. Since then, he had been rehabilitating from a strain on his left thigh. This week he went back to training with the group, but was left out of the related list, just in case. The other option in the São Paulo squad for the position is Igor Vinicius, who is recovering from trauma to his left eye. The coach Hernan Crespo Galeano had been improvising in the sector. The striker, however, took the third yellow card in the last round and will have to serve a suspension on Thursday.
Crespo did not indicate on Wednesday who will be the starting line-up. He listed two players to the left side: Welington and Reinaldo. An alternative would be to climb Welington on the right. Another casualty is defender Arboleda. He was called up to defend the Ecuador team in this round of World Cup qualifiers. Bruno Alves must be your replacement. On the other hand, Crespo will have at least two reinforcements for the derby. Benitez back after being barred in the last round due to the limit of five foreigners per match in Brasileirão and Gabriel Sara, embezzled on the weekend due to a flu, may even be the starter this Thursday.
