Another embezzler for the team is Nathan. The midfielder, who was a starter against Atlético-GO, received his third yellow card against América-MG and will have to comply with the automatic suspension. But, being a native of Florianópolis, he bought a ticket and traveled with the team to his hometown. Marcos Felipe, in turn, had particular problems and also did not travel with the group.

One of the news among those related is the young defender Davi Alves, 20 years old. He is trained in Xerém and has been with the club since he was 12 years old.

But it still occupies a place in the classification zone for the Libertadores group stage, since Flamengo and Corinthians, finalists of the Copa do Brasil, are ahead of it, and whoever is the champion will open another direct spot.
