Palmeiras faces, on Wednesday (10), Atlético-MG, in the return of the quarter-finals of the Libertadores. For the decisive match, the team of Abel Ferreira will have an important reinforcement, and this is the striker Rony, who is recovered and was available to the coaching staff in the last match against Goiás, which ended in victory alviverde 3-0.
The player was unavailable for almost a month, getting injured on July 10, against Fortaleza. On that occasion, the number 10 was substituted in the 33rd minute of the second half with pain in his left thigh. Later, an injury was found in the area, which was responsible for taking the top scorer of the season out of action for six games. Now Available cricket betting sites in indian rupees.
During this period, the striker missed two elimination games. The first was for the Brazil Cup, against São Paulo. On that occasion, Abel Ferreira had to take the field without a center forward, since Navarro was injured, as well as Rony - who played adapted to the position - and the two names hired - Merentiel and Flaco López - could not yet take the field due to bureaucratic issues.
On the field, Palmeiras was superior, but found it difficult to score, especially in the second half. Thus, the team was defeated 2-1 and eliminated on penalties. After the classic, however, CBF admitted there was an error by the video arbitration team, who did not check the offside Calleri in the bid that led to the rival's goal.
The other elimination match lost by Rony due to the injury was against Atlético-MG, last Wednesday (3). Verdão didn't perform well, suffering a lot throughout the 90 minutes and seeing their opponent open a two-goal advantage. Even so, the team of Abel Ferreira was able to tie and the referee blew the whistle with 2 to 2 on the scoreboard.
For the return match, at Allianz Parque, the Portuguese coach will again be able to count on the team's main scorer in a Libertadores match. In the current season, the number 10 has already scored seven times in the tournament, which is his best performance with the shirt of the National Champion. In total, he has scored 18 goals in the competition, leading the ranking of Palmeiras players with more goals.
