Ponte Preta – Coach: Hélio dos Anjos

Ponte has been without a title since the last game. The main foul is the striker Lucca, the top scorer in Serie B, with six goals. He is penalized for all three cards. Defender Thiago Oliveira and right-back Bernardo, who has been knocked out against Londrina, are also out, as is striker Danilo Gomes, who is being treated for muscle soreness.

The team will also have no control over Hélio dos Anjos on the grass. The coach was fired on charges and will be replaced by Guilherme dos Anjos, his assistant and son. On the other hand, midfielder Felipe Amaral, one of the midfielders, is back in action after two games that have healed from ankle pain.

The big news will be the debut of 18-year-old Douglas Mendes as head coach. As Norberto is still out for physical reasons, Igor Formiga takes the right side. There is still room to strengthen Wallisson’s midfield, and Echaporã will appear alongside Fessin in the attack.

Likely lineup: Caique França, Igor Formiga, Fábio Sanches, DG and Artur; Felipe Amaral, Léo Naldi, Ramon and Wallysson; Fessin and Echapora.
