Gremio with one or two Copa Libertadores injury concerns
Gremio have a couple of injury doubts ahead of their Copa Libertadores second round fixtures with Argentine champions San Lorenzo, the first leg of which is on Wednesday in their opponent's home fixture.
The Brazilian sde are set to be without the services of Rhodolfo and Wendell, the former's thigh injury not expected to keep him out for an extended period of time. Indeed, defender Rhodolfo has become a vital player for the team from Porto Alegre after they finished as runnners up to Cruzeiro in last season's Brasileirao.
Goalkeeper Marcelo Grohe is expected to be fit after passing a medical test on his left thigh, as Gremio look for a first Libertadores title since 1995, and a third in their history.
In between the San Lorenzo games, they must try to bounce back from an opening day league defeat to Atletico Paranaense whwn hosting Atletico Mineiro on Sunday evening.
