After the confrontation, coach Vitor Pereira gave a press conference and assessed the current situation of the club’s medical department, and also said that he did not know if he would get any return in the next match.
“We will travel, tomorrow we have training, I hope we will have a meeting with the medical department, and I will get a report to understand. It will be one or the other until match time to see if they have a condition. We need to buy as much time as possible to see who can play,” the Portuguese analyzed.
Timão, in this afternoon’s match, entered with a completely substitute team and full of youngsters from the base. The reason is the decisive confrontation next Tuesday against Boca Juniors, as well as the extensive list of absences that the team suffers from.
