Tite confirms that Edílson and Edu Dracena will start against Grêmio
Corinthians coach Tite has confirmed that right-back Edílson and central defender Edu Dracena will be starting in the Brasileirão Round-24 fixture with Grêmio on Wednesday at Arena Corinthians.
The coach is forced to make two changes to his team because first-choice right-back Fágner and defender Gil are suspended for the game on Wednesday. According to Globo Esporte, Tite confirmed during a press-conference that the replacements will be Edílson and Edu Dracena. Bar the two changes, the rest of the starting XI on Wednesday should be the same that played in the derby against Palmeiras. Both Uendel and midfielder Bruno Henrique continue to be on the sidelines with injury with Tite saying he'll keep youngsters Guilherme Arana and Marciel in the team. Expected Corinthians XI against Grêmio: Cássio; Edílson, Edu Dracena, Felipe, Guilherme Arana; Marciel, Ralf; Renato Augusto, Malcom, Jádson; Vágner Love.
