RIO DE JANEIRO, March 5 (Xinhua) -- Former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich midfielder Ze Roberto, who is set to start for Gremio in Tuesday's Copa Libertadores clash against Caracas, missed his team's final training session on Monday.
Gremio coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo has guaranteed the 38-year-old will line up for the Brazilian club in the Group eight clash at Arena Gremio, Brazil's Estado de S.Paulo reported.
But the Porto Alegre outfit will be without former Dynamo Kiev striker Kleber, who is still recovering from an injured right thigh.
Luxemburgo is expected to name Chile international striker Eduardo Vargas and Argentine center forward Hernan Barcos in his starting formation while former AC Milan and Brazil goalkeeper Dida will be in goal.
Gremio are currently ranked second in their group with one win from two games, ahead of third-placed Caracas on goal difference.
