After a tumultuous start to the season, Santos managed two straight victories after defeating Portuguesa (Campeonato Paulista) and Celendia (Copa do Brasil).
With 12 points earned, Peixe is looking for a win to continue his dream of qualifying for the quarter-finals, a fact that hasn’t happened since 2020. The team is also looking for its first victory in the Classics of the year.
Corinthians, who had already secured their place in the knockout rounds, came off a good 3-0 win over Mirasol. The goal is to keep the good moment in the classics. Timao beat Sao Paulo in Morumbi 2-1 and drew 2-2 with Palmeiras at home. The indomitable is celebrated, since 2022 Timão has struggled against his rivals.
Santos and Corinthians have had a balanced record lately
Premiere for all Brazil. The match will also be broadcast on Paulistão Play.
Santos – Coach: Oder Hellmann
With a muscle problem, striker Angelo should miss the squad in the Classics. If confirmed, Lucas Braga is the prime candidate for the vacancy. Midfielder Dodi, who was substituted in the second half of the duel against Celandia, for the Brazilian Cup, has recovered from pain in his left knee and will go to the match. The captain wants to give as many minutes as possible so that the starting line-up can have a better relationship.
Potential team: John Powell; Joao Lucas, Maicon, Joaquim and Felipe Jonathan; Rodrigo Fernandez, Dodi and Lucas Lima; Lucas Braga (Angelo), Marcos Leonardo and Mendoza.
Those abroad: Sotildo, Pedrino Scaramossa, Alex Nascimento, and Sandri (Medical Department); Carabajal (move to grass).
suspended: Joaquim, Camacho, Nathan, Lucas Barbosa, and Marcos Leonardo.
Corinthians – Coach: Fernando Lazaro

Those abroad: no one.
