Giuliano did the first two parts of training with the group and then continued his physical improvement routine. Renato Augusto, on the other hand, continues with training conducted by physiotherapist Caio Mello at Lab R9.
The trend is that at least Giuliano can debut on the 8th, against Santos, in Vila Belmiro, but everything will depend on physical evolution. Without playing since December 2020, Renato Augusto starts further back.
Midfielder Gabriel Pereira, who was experiencing pain in the posterior muscle of his right thigh, took part in the training on the lawn under the guidance of physiotherapist Lucas Freitas.
