Arana had to be substituted in the second half of Atltico’s defeat against Internacional, last Sunday (31), for the 20th round of Serie A of the Brazilian Championship. He complained of pain in the back of his left thigh and gave room to Dod, who returned after a long period away.
In the first days of the week, Arana did specific work with Atltico’s physiotherapy, in addition to examinations to verify the severity of the injury. The club does not disclose deadlines for the returns of injured athletes.
“I was undergoing treatment in three periods to return as soon as possible. I was in the CT, there was a possibility that I would return, but the doctors did not authorize it, because of the risk of worsening the lesion”, said Rdio Itatiaia.
Arana is expected to make a quick recovery until the return leg of the Copa Libertadores quarter-finals, against Palmeiras, next Wednesday, at 9:30 pm, at Allianz Parque. The club does not detail whether the player will be able to face the São Paulo team.
