As our league takes this weekend off, we find ourselves facing Fenerbahce in the first fixture of the CL this upcoming week.
Mariano has fully recovered after being out for 2 weeks from Hulk's free-kick.
p The three Portuguese internationals(Bruno Alves, Raul Meireles, Daniel Candeias[U-21]) are all back, and the South American internationals(Lisandro, Rodriguez, Guarin, Fucile) arrive tomorrow.
It looks like, along with Tarik back, we'll have a full squad to choose from aside from Fucile who is suspended since last year's sending off against Schalke.
Rolando looks to have already taken the place of captain Pedro Emanuel, and Jesualdo apparently prefers young Fernando at DM right now over all of Guarin, Tomas Costa, Bolatti, and Pele. The spot in the air will be the right winger role, where either of Tarik or Mariano could occupy it, or Lisandro could go to the right for Hulk or Farias to play as striker.
Should be a great game.
