Botafogo was 0-0 in the first semi-final of the Rio Cup against Portuguesa-RG, last Sunday. However, if he didn’t win the match to take a step further in the decision, he would have ended up in trouble with his medical department.

Coach Luis Castro had to make a change once the first half ended, as midfielder Danilo Barbosa suffered a cramp. In so much pain, the player’s condition did not progress and the indigestible news hit Espaço Lonier on Tuesday (21).

Solitary Star No. 5 underwent tests that found spasms in the adductor muscle of the thigh and the situation worries Glorioso’s medical department, as Danilo has a history of injuries that could aggravate the condition: “Danilo left in the first half with an injury. He had some problems On a physical level whenever he has some continuity, I hope that’s resolved. It allows you to release more Tchê Tchê. That gives us more players in the final third,” Castro explained in the post-match press conference.

Thus, Danilo is doubtful about the second match against Portuguesa-RG, which will take place next Monday (27), at General Silvio Raulino de Oliveira, “Estádio do Aço”, in Volta Redonda.

Rafael Letão, journalist born and raised in São Paulo, has been writing for Bolafib since 2020, specializing in Brazilian clubs, and is a huge fan of the roots of football, which is an integral part of the culture, in all the permanence and continuity of its traditions.
