Injuries & Suspensions
Everyone knows about Brazil. Well, the national side at least as they are one of the greatest footballing nations on the planets when it comes to success in the World Cup. They seem to churn out domestic talent at an enviable rate and while it is common that most of them end up going to Europe's top clubs, there is still a wealth of untapped talent running out in action week after week in Brazil's top flight.
There are some exciting match ups from the Brazilian league and there are some famous clubs there like Corinthians, Flamengo, Palmeiras and Santos. There are is a long season of 38 games for the teams as well in the top flight with a lot of rewards at stake, the top one being, of course, the league title. It is natural over the course of a season that injuries and suspensions are going to play their parts in the action and it is pretty handy to have a full list of Brazil Serie A injuries and suspensions to hand.

So all of the information about the Brazil Serie A injuries and suspensions list is right here for you. It is a long, intense season with the title up for grabs as well as places in the following season's Copa Libertadores and the Copa Sudamericana.
