The victory over Palmeiras gave a boost to one piece in particular in Corinthians: Colombian Cantelo, who started under doubt in a vacant Gabriel place, performed well and should continue in the squad against Red Bull Bragantino.
Gabriel’s comment was a double dose: the defensive midfielder took the third yellow card against America-MG and ended up getting sent off right after the duel ended. With that, he will have to play two games.
With good numbers in the derby, Cantelo should continue as the first midfielder in Sylvinho’s 4-1-4-1 this Saturday, against Bragantino, in Naby Abi Chedid, at 7 pm, for the 23rd round of Brazil.

Cantello’s indicators in the fencing were considered very good, not only by the technical staff, but also by the fans, who were somewhat skeptical about the player’s return after 55 days without entering the field – and as the first defending midfielder. Xavier was seen as the natural alternative to Gabriel.
Cantelo’s Derby numbers*:
- 48 correct passes (100% correct)
- 5 disarm
- 3 out of 5 versions are correct
- 1 help for achievement.
Cantelo left the field at the New Coimica Arena in the final stage of the second half, apparently suffering from muscle aches, the result of simply being tired from someone coming from a period of inactivity. In principle, the player will not need to re-evaluate in the re-introduction of the team.
Gabriel is available again for Sylvinho in the match on October 5, against Bahia, at the New Coimica Arena, in the 24th round of the Brazilian Championship. Until then, the battle over the vacancy must rage.
