Even with the game uniform: Palmeiras simulates an official match in training in the arena | palm trees

Abel Ferreira led a different training session this Saturday morning. The Palmeiras coach took the players to Allianz Parque for an activity simulating an official match, with an arbitration team, two periods of 45 minutes and even a game uniform.

The technical committee made the choice to simulate as much as possible the intensity and concentration of a match, since Verdão will only return to play on the 12th, against Flamengo, by Brasileirão.
