The Brazilians captain picked up his fourth booking in the 0-0 draw with Chippa United on Wednesday.
He was actually booked in the 35th minute of the blacked-out 42 minutes of action that were played on Tuesday night, but Tiyani Mabunda returns from suspension at Athlone Stadium. Lucky Mohomi and Teko Modise are also available.
Pitso Mosimane’s side could also be without injured players Denis Onyango, Anele Ngcongca, Anthony Laffor and Khama Billiat.
City, meanwhile, have no suspensions but Thabo Nodada and Samora Motlaung remain sidelined through injury.
Also on Friday night Platinum Stars host Chippa without right-back-cum-holding-midfielder Vuyo Mere after he picked up a fourth caution in their 3-0 thumping of Bloemfontein Celtic.
Ajax Cape Town travel to SuperSport United on Saturday night without Lawrence Lartey after he picked up a fourth booking in the 1-1 draw with Kaizer Chiefs.
