Thanks to the bye. We have 8-10 days from any of these players last match to our first playoff game.

That adds another advantage to the bye:
1. One less game required to win Cup.
2. Cannot accumulate a yellow card suspension.
3. Plays the first match vs a team away & on short rest.
4. Players get extra time to return from international play.
Aside from Chanot and maybe Rocha, none of the other guys are guaranteed starters or essential subs. There's a good chance they might not even play. So that gives a little bit of ease that they won't get injured... but apparently injuries happen during warmups..
I just hope the extra few days time we gained with the bye is enough to get Heber and Isi back to fitness. But I fear that both may not be ready in time. hopefully injury report will be good news
