The 23-year-old picked up two yellow cards in two matches during previous qualification rounds and had to take his place on the naughty step for Saturday's battle with Ecuador, but he could challenge Fred for a spot in midfield following his return.
Brazil manager Tite has no fresh injury concerns to report from the weekend's victory, but experienced defensive duo Thiago Silva and Dani Alves have been forced to cede their places in the squad to Felipe and Emerson.

Brazil possible starting lineup: Alisson; Danilo, Militao, Marquinhos, Sandro; Casemiro, Luiz, Paqueta; Richarlison, Firmino, Neymar
