After the controversial draw with São Paulo on Saturday , Grêmio resumed their activities at CT Luiz Carvalho on Monday, and began their preparation for next Thursday’s match against América de Cali, at 21:30, at the Arena, by Grupo E da Libertadores.
In case of victory, Tricolor goes to 13 points, closes the bracket as leader, without depending on parallel results and will have the advantage of deciding the confrontation of the round of 16 in Porto Alegre.
This afternoon, the athletes who worked at Morumbi did recovery work at the gym and complemented the activity with running on the lawn. Players who did not play, or did not travel, participated in physical training, guided by the coach Márcio Meira.
Alisson and Luiz Fernando, who left the game against Paulistas in pain, were evaluated and will be accompanied by the Medical Department in the coming days. Before the match, following the protocol of Conmebol, the squad will be subjected to another round of tests by Covid-19.
