Atlético-MG training started early, after a 3-0 win over Corinthians. And without much new regarding the clinical picture of Mariano and Nacho Fernandez. They both feel discomfort in their left thigh and have undergone physiotherapy within a CT scan.
The cast’s rerun was at 9 a.m. this Thursday. Atlético will play again only on Tuesday, in Curitiba, against Atletico PR, for the round of 33. According to the training photos, the activity was only in the gym, with reserves and holders.
There is no requirement for free time. The team organizes activities on Friday afternoons, and also on two days of the weekend. On Monday, it’s time to board the plane to Paraná. Coca will certainly not have five players: those who have been called up (Alonso, Franco, Savarino and Vargas), as well as Guilherme Arana, who is suspended.

If Mariano and Nacho Fernandez can’t act, Coca already has alternatives available. Guga replaced the full-back when Mariano felt his thigh in the second half. He had already served in the second half against Coelho, due to a muscle spasm.
On the other hand, Nacho was suspended over the weekend, feeling his thigh on the eve of the match against Timon. Diego Costa made the attacking trio with Hulk and Keno, and the midfield was in charge of Alan and Chi Chi Zaracho. Gayer, first, enters the second half and should return to his position against the Hurricane, in the vacant position of Chi Chi.
