Arboleda, when anticipating the palmeirense and moving the ball to the sideline, twisted his ankle badly when putting his left foot on the lawn and screamed in pain.

Quickly, the defender received medical attention and had to be replaced by coach Rogério Ceni, who opted for the experienced Miranda to enter. The Ecuadorian from São Paulo, already on the stretcher, was caught crying by the cameras of Amazon, the company that broadcast the classic paulista.

After the confrontation, already in the mixed zone, Leo commented on the move. “He is a very important player for us, but we also have other very important players. We have a group, in this moment of frustration, injury, the group is very important. We regret that he got injured, but we know that there is another one there. with the same ability to match on the field.”
