Palmeiras trained this Monday morning, at the Football Academy, and Rony took another step to return to play.
Having recovered from an injury to his left thigh, the striker is in the process of transitioning between physical and technical. He participated in most of the activities with the rest of the group and only at the end of the day did he complete the schedule with a separate training session, under the care of the Health and Performance Nucleus.

The trend at the moment, however, is that it is not yet listed. Even if he travels with the squad, the striker would be an option on the bench.
The probable lineup for the duel with Galo has: Weverton; Marcos Rocha, Gustavo Gómez, Murilo and Piquerez; Danilo, Zé Rafael and Raphael Veiga; Gustavo Scarpa, Dudu and Lopez.

Abel Ferreira will lead another activity at the Football Academy this Tuesday morning, and in the afternoon the group travels to Belo Horizonte (MG).
Owner of the best Libertadores campaign, Palmeiras won the eight games they played in the competition, with 33 goals scored and only three conceded.
After playing the first leg at Mineirão, the team receives Goiás at Allianz Parque, on Sunday, for the Brasileiro, and then faces Atlético-MG, in the following fourth, also in the arena.
