Santos youngster Alison returns from cruciate ligament injury, and can face Figueirense on Saturday
22-year-old midfielder Alison has been included in Santos' 23-man match-squad for their upcoming league game against Figueirense.
Santos are up against Figueirense at the Estádio Orlando Scarpelli in Florianópolis for the Brasileirão Round-32 fixture on Saturday. Midfielder Alison has been picked for the first time since February when he ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament on the right knee. Alison was injured in the club's goalless draw with rivals São Paulo on in the Campeonato Paulista earlier this year. Meanwhile, Thiago Maia has a small swelling in the adductor muscle of the right thigh, and he's been ruled out of Saturday's game. He is now undergoing treatment and will be re-evaluated in the coming days. Victor Ferraz will miss his sixth consecutive fixture, while Gabriel Barbosa is suspended. Santos trained behind closed doors on Friday and coach Dorival Júnior gave no details about a likely starting XI.
