The Brazilians travel to Tuks Stadium knowing a result could give them the Absa Premiership title, depending on what Bidvest Wits do at MP Black Aces on Tuesday evening.

But Pitso Mosimane will have to cope without Colombian striker Leonardo Castro, who is suspended after picking up his fourth booking of the season in the 3-1 win over Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

Tuks, meanwhile, will be without midfielder Mpho Maruping, who got his fourth booking against Cosmos on the weekend and is also suspended, as they continue their bid to survive relegation.
