Neymar ruled out of Sport Recife clash
Santos forward Neymar will miss tonight’s Brasileirão clash against Sport Recife due to illness.
The 20-year-old, who has been included in Brazil’s squad for their upcoming friendlies against South Africa and China, has been suffering from Flu since Friday.
Santos coach Muricy Ramalho had expected Neymar to recover in time for tonight's game in Recife, but a club's spokesman confirmed on Saturday evening that their star player is still unwell and will remain in São Paulo.
As a result, Muricy is likely to replace Neymar with 16-year-old Victor Andrade.
Santos' possible starting XI: Rafael; Bruno Peres, Bruno Rodrigo, Durval, Juan; Adriano, Arouca, Patito Rodriguez, Felipe Anderson; André, Victor Andrade
